Towards the end of 2012 Bridgeen and myself started a quarterly Illustration Stitch Along group. The idea was (and is) to make embroideries based on existing illustrations. Pictured above are pieces made in the past three stitch along rounds. (Please click the link below the mosaic to find out more about these wonderful artists/embroideries!)

Fast forward to autumn 2013 and we are already onto our 4th Stitch Along round! Each Stitch Along has it's own theme. After an Edward Gorey, a Tim Burton and a 'choose-your-own-illustrator' Stitch Along, we are now making embroideries based on Dr. Seuss' art. I already have 'the Lorax' in my hoop. Maybe you'd like to stitch a long with us some time? You can join the group and only stitch along once a year or make multiple pieces bases on one theme, it's all ok. Hope to see you there!
