Bristol Tabletopper

Bristol Tabletopper
c. 2007 Dutch Treat Designs

On Sunday, met up with stitching friends Karol, Tina, and Sue (w/o blog) at Beth's (w/o blog) home. What a delightful afternoon.

Karol is making wonderful progress on her baby sampler -- she stitches so FAST!!! Her needlework is even & perfect! Tina brought show-n-tell ... two completed canvas projects, one in jewel tones & one in pinks. Stunning!!! Sue continues to stitch her ANG name badge. Beth started out on her frame weight (canvas) and quickly switched to punchneedle ... which is progressing nicely.

I managed to finish another square on the tabletopper. It is quite interesting to stitch the motifs with Cinnabar Watercolour fibers. There is also a pattern for bookmarks with Bristol motifs if tabletoppers aren't your thing.
