Stitch Group - New Project

One finished redwork project - a pouch with four red fabrics and a red zipper!

Four of us met last Sunday and started a new project, with the finishing of the redwork projects continuing.  

The new project is a bargello bell, which can be finished into an ornament, or maybe a brooch.  We'll see.  The project uses nine colors of DMC floss, plus some gold metallic thread, stitched on 28 count linen.  There was a lot of concentrating, so not so much talking.  I did learn one new word though- ケチ (kechi), which means miser.

At tea time we saw these little neighborhood cats curled up on the back porch.  How cute they are!


  1. Hi Pamela oh i love your cute purse,hi girls looks like they are having fun xx

  2. At tea time no one is 'kechi'! You always have a lot of sweets to eat.
    The redwork pouch is charming. Is the girl cooking for the kitties in the last photo?

  3. Must be lots of concentrating when there is no chatting! Your pouch is lovely. The cats look like they are keeping warm together.

  4. Very nice finish on the pouch. xx

  5. I would be concentrating too if I were working on a bargello project. How does your group decide what projects you will work on?
    xx, Carol

    Yes, how do you decide on new projects?
