Pierrette's Pretties

Welcome to the blog of Cyberstitchers EGA. In it, we'll be profiling members of the chapter and their stitching successes. This week, Pierrette has agreed to share three pieces with us. The first is called "Edwina Gorey." Isn't it charming? Done in a style reminiscent of Edwin Gorey, creator of The Addams family, she stitched the kit in crewel.

The second piece is called "A Cottage Garden" and Pierrette found it in a favorite magazine of several members, "Inspirations". You can see, both in this and in Edwina, how Pierrette is meticulous in her stitch placement, which results in a fresh, crisp finish. She has finished it into a needlebook. What a wonderful idea.

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.
