My Saturday with my Stitchin' Friends.....

This past Saturday was our monthly group meeting with my "Stitchin' Friends" hosted by Teresa of ....what else....Stitchin' Friends!

This month, Teresa taught a new-to-us technique from Helen at Hugs 'n Kisses. It was great fun.


After this step, we are supposed to outline all the coloring with embroidery but I like the black outline so much, I may leave it.


I happened to trace my pattern with a black pigma pen with every intention of stitching it. What do YOU think?

Blessings, Cathi

What did you color with? I'd love to see how to do this....tutorial? Dang, I need to drive to yours for stitching day!

I like the black outline. You were really careful and it looks perfect so if you don't want to stitch over I'd say don't...it looks fabulous just as it is!

I have used crayons to do this technique? What did you use?
I like it the way it is but when you add embroidery it really makes it.

Hi Cathi, I'm a friend of Teresa's too! But, I live in Texas. Isn't she the nicest person? I just love her! I love your colored block and like the black outline but I would have to add the stitching because that is one of my favorite things to do.
