Stitching Capers

Great meeting today of the local chapter of embroiderers, with a new project, yes, another one!  this was very counter intuitive for me, requiring counting and planning and care, and all those things so foreign to my art nature, but it was fun and the time zoomed by.



This is a project, small, blessedly, named Madrigal. Well, they had me at the name, as a former madrigal singer in my misspent youth, and this one involves not only gold thread, but beads, too!  and the silence as the company concentrated fiercely was impressive.  I didn't get enough completed to show you, but here's the general idea, and some of the participants at work.

Just love the idea of a group, usually women, getting together and creating in blissful silent concentration. Wonderful. Thanks for taking the time to share.
