April Embroidery Guild Meeting

This month's meeting of the Trillium Embroidery Guild wasn't a 'lesson' meeting. We just worked on our own projects and looked around at what others were working on.

Here are some projects that are underway:

This will look like a painting when it is done.

This heart is stitched over one thread with overdyed yarns.

This is stitched on linen and is beautifully intricate. This photo does not do it justice.

Many of the guild members are stitching this kimono project using a variety of threads - cotton, silk, metallic on mono canvas.  I opted out of this project but the ones that I've seen being worked on are stunning.

This is being stitched on black fabric - VERY hard on the eyes but it will be very striking when it's finished.

This banner was stitched by guild members a few years ago. We are the Trillium Embroidery Guild so the theme for the banner was stitched squares reflecting Durham Region, Ontario or Canada.
I just realize I forgot to take a photo of the cars square. That is certainly representative of Oshawa.

There were three trillium squares.

And some lovely bullion-stitched flowers.

Here are some Canadian critters.

This one was stitched over one thread.
The pines represent Canada; the trilliums, Ontario and the marigolds, Whitby.

And these are just beautiful, embroidered, drawn thread squares
