Knowledge and Needles Open House

I have many stitching photos to show you so I will have to split them into a few posts.

Ann at Knowledge and Needles hosts an Open House in August every year. We are given the opportunity to get together with other stitchers from all over Ontario and to display our work. Of course, we chat lots, eat even more and shop till we drop.

 Warning: Photo and stitching intensive!

Spring Quaker, Bagatelle, Cirque des Carreaux and a couple of Desert Mandalas

Wolves, trains, Mirabilia RR, Ink Circles and LHN

Mirabilia, Just Nan and a Sheltering Tree

Stockings galore

  
Lucky Laura to have such a beautiful sampler.


Mirabilia's Rose of Sharon and Lizzie Kate

A new kind of finish - bolster pillows

Bonnie's Ink Circles pillow

You should see the detail work on these!





Pretty little baby bibs

Dani's Faberge Egg - St Petersburg - the inside is all over 1.

Cross Stitchers Poem

Christin's Paradigm Lost, Jardin Prive, Tribal Butterfly, Angie's Fall Scene, Mirabilia Fairy

Stitched by our favorite 96 year old stitcher Adriana!

Joyce's Mona Lisa - she says another 5 years and she will be done.


I hope you enjoyed the show.
