And yes, my husband and Barb insisted I be in this picture. I'm holding the sunflower ball and Barb's holding the springtime stars and flowers one. She's such a good teacher AND a member of Cyberstitchers. If you have a chance, take a temari class. Or two. Or three. And say hi to Barb online, all you members.

Fantasy Remembered is an EGA group correspondence course, and one I've been reluctant to tackle because of the extensive stumpwork. Donna, on the other hand, did it beautifully and the raised berries and dragonfly in flight make the piece sing.

Lani Y., a member of Cyberstitchers for about two years, enjoys counted work, especially hardanger and cross stitch. She started stitching nearly a quarter century ago, but she's still only 32 years old. Precocious! Her most recent GCC was More Options in Hardanger, done in lovely blues and purples. It is beautifully done and gorgeously finished as a wall hanging.
Her cross stitch pieces range from reminders of home and country, such as Americana Sampling from Little House Designs, Happy Home from Blue Ribbon Designs and Lady of the Flag (her current work in progress), to such an intricate and glowing piece as Celtic Christmas from Lavender and Lace.
One of the pieces she is most proud of is a tribute to her father, Hickory Dickory Dock - her first band sampler. It holds a special place in both her heart and her father's because it was completed just before she went into basic training.

Pierrette did this project, Options in Hardanger, as a group correspondence course with Cyberstitchers. The use of pink and chocolate gives it a very feminine, romantic feel. She did a great job. If you would like to see more of Pierrette's work, check out her blog.
