Clever Stitchers

Last week at our April meeting of the Trillium Embroidery Guild several members put some of their projects on display so we could oooo and ahhhh.
I think this one is normally displayed on the diagonal - as a diamond.
Amy says she stitched this in one night.
Mary is almost finished the kimono piece started last year. Now she just needs to do the lacy stitches in the background.
Unfortunately, I missed the meeting in February where we learned how to properly finish a biscornu. Here's a blackwork one that's all finished except for the centre bead or button.
And this one has 15 square sides!
This hardanger bell was an interesting design.
The person who sets up the display adds some decorative items. This month it was butterflies.
Here's a closeup of the button heart. If you look closely, there are charms, ribbon, pearls and French knots, too! (click on image to enlarge)
Here's an English Garden design.
And a closeup.
I finished my 'Bucky the Snowman' designed by Ruth Sparrow Gendron, Cecilia Turner, Marsha Worley and Elizabeth Newlin c. 2004 from 'the Trilogy'. The finished design size is 3 1/4" x 4 1/4".
