Summer Stitch Club Update

We are three weeks into our summer stitch club with Wild Olive.  I am beyond glad that I stitched up the entire quilt top in advance!  I suspected I might be happy, but really I’m quite delirious about it.

This week’s embroidery pattern is a wee bikini and I’ve stitched it onto the third hexie in shade of pink, green, and grey. 

Week Three – Bikini

I used an embroidery hoop this week and got much better results. The hoop marks ironed right out as well.  It took about 5 minutes or so to stitch the entire pattern so the hoop was not on for long. 

I’ve been trying since the beginning to get you accurate photos of the colors in this fabric group. They’re slightly more muted than they appear in the photos.  I’ve been playing around with the ISO and some of the other camera settings with some good results.  Alas, today we have too many clouds and not enough natural light.  But I will continue to try!

Here is a quick pic of all three weeks worth of patterns in a row.

Week Three – All Patterns

 Mollie is such a talented artist – these patterns are so whimsical. It’s been sighted on the Twitterverse that she is already getting ready for a fall project. I’m delighted as fall is my favorite season.  If you weren’t able to get involved in this summer club, perhaps you can stitch with us this fall.

If you are you stitching along with Wild Olive I would love for you to link to you project. You can also check out more stitching in the Wild Olive Flickr Group.
