Orchid and Bamboo Grows

The Main Line Stitchers chapter held our Stitch-in on Saturday. It was a small group of 5 and a few on Zoom. It was the first time to meet at United Methodist Church in Paoli. It’s locked at all times so people must call me upon arrival to get in. It worked well. Two long tables were wide and long enough for five. Great lighting. The Zoom people could hear well even without the eSpeaker. They can’t see everyone but that was fine.

I progressed on the left panel of Orchid and Bamboo. There wasn’t any more football on Sunday but the Philadelphia 76ers (basketball) actually have a team that can win. It’s not as easy a sport to watch and stitch as either football or baseball but I finished the left panel anyway later that day. Again, I took a photo and superimposed the stitches on top to figure out the compensation inside the medallion.

This is looking good. You must stitch all the time. I’m still struggling with my Kurdy Biggs pilot Jan Sprague

Yes, I stitch a lot Jan! Giving my hand a rest today though. I will work on Kurdy’s Secret Window tomorrow. That’s an amazing design of Kurdy’s that you’re working on. It’ll be lovely. I find working on small sections help. Small goals for a session add up.

What a beautiful piece – love the colors. Does it have a companion ?

Thanks. Please excuse the orchid panel which is in progress. Yes, the companion piece, Bird of Paradise and Bamboo is done. Search ‘bird’ on my blog if this link doesn’t work.
