Barbara’s Patchwork Area C

Filed under: ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter, ANG SOTM 1999 Barbara's Patchwork

One of the counted projects for my ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter is ANG’s Stitch of the Month (SOTM) from 1999, Barbara’s Patchwork. Everyone’s is looking great.

Unlike Area B, most of Area C is covered but there are some open areas. So, watching where threads start and end is important. I started the base, Elongated Cross stitch, in Area A near the upper left corner with a 30” thread so that I would not need to start again. That long length of thread will not get stressed (excess wear) because they are such large crosses. My only change was from two plies to one ply for the last 4 elongated crosses (those that are vertically oriented located between the irregular Smyrna stitches).

Please join us December 9 (always the second Monday of the month from 7-9 pm) at Starbucks in Wayne, PA (218 Lancaster Ave).
