Barbara’s Patchwork, Area G

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

We are more than half done on one of the counted projects with my ANG Main Line Stitchers Chapter which is ANG’s Stitch of the Month (SOTM) from 1999, Barbara’s Patchwork.

The Byzantine stitch over 2 threads is the main pattern but there is an Eyelet added for interest. I chose Kreinik #12 Braid 421 for some sparkle.

I decided to remove the light Color A floss on the top and bottom edges of Areas B and D. Instead, I used the same Kreinik just used in Area G.

Due to the coronavirus, our chapter will meet via Zoom at our normal day and time. It’s nice that the ANG Area representative wants to join us and introduce herself in person as it were.

I think Show and Tell will take awhile because we’ve all been stitching so much. Then, we’ll be discussing the rest of the sections of Barbara’s Patchwork and see where everyone is with Crescent Journey. If time allows, I have a discussion planned about thread and stitch selections for a canvas other than the Vases canvas to see how it translates online. In case Zoom is our only option for a while, I better figure out how best to use it.

We sort of figured out how to help a friend select a stitch for a particular area of her canvas during our casual Zoom stitching group meeting last night. She had a picture of the canvas that I had taken for her when providing her a color guide for her threads (she’s got an odd color blindness), which came in very handy. She shared it with us via the “Share” feature, then we looked at stitch books we had in common to pick the right one. Being in our own homes, we could go get what we needed, which wouldn’t have been possible had we been sitting around the table in her house without all of our resources at hand. You’ll be able to have a good discussion with your advance planning. Shared photos and scanned images are the key, as far as I can tell.
