Well, I had been stitching this during our ANG Saturday Stitch-in days until we got hit with the coronavirus. And, it got put away and forgotten until I went looking for something else.

So, I decided to finish the glass bottle. I love how the two strands of Bijoux MMT482 Tigar Eye in the Woven stitch look like bourbon sitting in a glass bottle. I can taste it!

There was a nice turn out for today’s Main Line Stitch-in with a surprise Show ‘n Tell from 3 members. I’m gathering photos of pieces to send to the graphic artist who will create our advertising postcard featuring a couple of pieces for our month-long exhibit at the Media Arts Council Gallery which will be starting July 11. It’s open to the public.

Today, I continued with the Woven stitch using 2 strands of Bijoux Tiger Eye MMT482 on the Blanton’s canvas. The open stitch and thin thread allows the colors of the canvas to show through. Since I really didn’t understand the white areas, I am happy that they are much less apparent. Next month, Saturday March 28, I should finish the glass bottle.

Please join us any fourth Saturday of the month from 11 am – 3 pm at Starbucks in Wayne, PA (218 Lancaster Ave).

Despite heavy rain several ANG Main Line Stitchers showed up for today’s Stitch-in. I had gotten several good suggestions for open stitches at my chapter meeting. Jane at Chilly Hollow had left a comment also suggesting a thin metallic in an open stitch.

So, I went with Woven using 2 strands of Bijoux Tiger Eye MMT482. This Bijoux has some gold and some reddish areas throughout the thread (that isn’t coming through in the photo). I’m using 2 strands and the colors don’t always line up. It’s really turning out well. Looks justs like a deep bourbon colored liquid in a glass bottle.
