Just so you know...Stitch A Long coming up!

Doubtful Guest being especially Doubtful..

Last weekend I posted an update of my Doubtful Guest embroidery on Instagram (find me there! I'm Followbunny) in honour of the addition of the fringe on the scarf (great excuse to use the Turkey Stitch!). Most of my Instagram pics are forwarded to Twitter (where I happen to be Followbunny too!) and I'm not sure how it happened but for some reason the subject of a Edward Gorey Stitch Along came up on Twitter. Not now, now is not a good time for a lot of people (with Christmas Stitching to do etc) but starting the first of January 2013!

So I just thought I'd let you all know... If you are not familiar with Edward Gorey's work take a look here or here. I have created a Flickr group for those of you interested in Stitching A Long next year (what a great way of starting 2013!) you can find it here.  The Stitch A Long after that will be all about Tim Burton's work. I can't wait!

  7. I love Edward Gorey. My stitching is REALLY rusty and pretty slow, but for this I am willing to try. Plus I LOVE Tim Burton too. Can't wait.

  8. This sounds like something I'd really like to do! Just finished a big embroidery project for my son and dil and ready for another. Got to run out and find some Edward Gorey books and pick out my pattern!
