Our project this month is a butterfly ornament by Durene Jones. The pattern can be ordered individually and downloaded by each participant. Each member must purchase an individual pattern.  Photo and link shared with permission of Durene ones.  The Etsy link is https://www.etsy.com/listing/1027923422/butterfly-ornament-cross-stitch-and?ref=user_profile

Lauretta Jackson will lead us on the Hardanger/drawn thread portion of the design, which will require Perle Cotton #8 and #12. It is stitched on 28 count fabric, with DMC threads.  Please see additional photos on the Etsy website. The reverse is very pretty and different from the front.  See photo in November ASG newsletter.

We will work on one of the small corner portions of the piece (the Kloster block and “Hardanger”/drawn thread portion), shown on the reverse side of he ornament. Please see photo in the ASG November Newsletter.

Please have a 6” piece of 28-ct. linen, #8 and #12 perle cotton, a appropriately-sized hoop and small sharp scissors (for cutting the linen thread) ready for this class.  It is recommended that you practice this portion on some scrap linen and not on your final project if you are new to this technique.

Please email lauretta_jackson@yahoo.com if you have any questions.  General meeting time is 1:00 to 2:00; Program from 2:00 to 4:00 on Zoom (see link below).
