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.

Pierrette is one of our finest Needle Artists and the way that she has taken to Embroidery from many years of Needlepoint is like a duck to water. Her professional approach and her dedication to all forms of Needlecraft are something to be admired. She is also an amazing tutor who taught me to needlepoint something that I never ever thought that I would be able to do. I think that the choice of Pierrette as the first of the Cyberstitchers to be spotlighted on this new blog was just perfect

Thanks, Terry, but I don't feel like I deserve all these wonderful comments.

It is true that I tend to be a perfectionist. I am also a slow stitcher, probably the two goes well together, hand in hand. I can tell you that there are plenty of room for improvement. The fact that I diversify myself so much in techniques makes it much harder to really become good at something, but I do love the variety and I feel that I have barely touched the surface of all that is out there for me to learn.

This is one of the reason I love EGA CyberStitchers so much as it gives me the opportunity to take classes in so many different techniques with wonderful teachers/designers that I would probably not be able to take otherwise.

Wow! How lovely to see the mourning sampler peice. It was designed by Elizabeth Creeden of Plymouth, Massachusetts for A Sampler Gathering many years ago. I finally finished mine,too,into the little box she provided, recently entered it in our local guild show, and it actually won a prize of all things. Don't you miss A Sampler Gathering?

Hi,

I purchased mine from Jenny June when she was still in business and it came as a kit but there was no little box provided with mine. I would like to see yours if possible. My email is LovetoStitch99@comcast.net

That was truly a fun piece to stitch. I wish there were others similar to that one.

Thanks for telling me the name of the designer as it was not indicated on the instruction sheet.

I have taken note of her name and will add it on my blog next to the entry I made for it.
