A Gorey Update

Last week I made some good progress on my Edward Gorey Stitch Along piece. I was a bit worried about embroidering on the seam where I joined the 'wallpaper' to the 'floor' but that went ok. Except that you still can see the line through the Doubtful Guest's fur. I think I will just make him a bit more furry to cover it up. :)

Some of the other stitchers are already (nearly) finished with their pieces! How about this little skeleton guy beautifully embroidered on a pillowcase by Sophie?

Read all about her Gorey project here.

It's not too late to join us in the Stitch along group on Flickr and make your own Gorey Piece. Or maybe you'd rather wait for the next SAL (starting in April) which has the work of Tim Burton as theme.

P.S. Brie, one of the other Stitch-along-ers, pointed this Edward Gorey Google illustration out to me, in honour of his 88th birthday yesterday:


  1. Loving how fluffy your doubtful guest is becoming! And aren't Sophie's little skeletons amazing! I really need to get started on my piece ;-)

  2. Your doubtful guest looks brilliant - you've really brought the illustration to life!

  3. Both pieces are fantastic, I'm glad I found your blog when I did!

  4. Thank you all so much! I love this Stitch A long group! xo

  5. Ooh, I love the Doubtful Guest and your stitching is so fabulous!
