The People Choose Geometric


This SAL is all about what you want to see on the blog.  Each month I ask for suggestions for themes and then put them up to the members of the IHSW Group on FB to vote for their choice.  This is what they have chosen:

September - Geometric
October - Wizards
November - Magic

Looking at my projects and other people's blogs it does seem that Geometric is more associated with patchwork or needlepoint than with cross stitch.  I do have a couple of projects which come under the category.

The first one is a little old, according to the receipt I bought it in March, 2000 and the kit cost CAN$56 or £25.00.  (I just checked the RoEx and that would now be £32 so I got a bargain!  This design is called Southwest Garden by Karen E. Dudzinski of Textured Treasures.  I bought the kit at the Olympia Stitching Show and I have a feeling it was Karen who served us.  I stitched it straight away.

It's stitched in a mixture of DMC, Flower Threads, Needle Necessities Fibres, and Rainbow Gallery fibres plus some Perle cotton and a silver metallic.

The cover picture has a rather fancy mat around it which means I have never gotten it framed because I couldn't find anyone to fussy cut a triple mat for a reasonable price.  I should just get a square frame and get it up on the wall!

I have a couple of freebies from Gazette94 which come under the geometric banner:




Now it's over to you.  All you have to do is make a post on the theme of Geometric, mention The People's Choice SAL (you can copy the picture I used at the top of this post and in my side bar) and my blog. Please link up using the URL of the actual blog post, not the home page of your blog. I look forward to seeing what you all post.

Finally, I need your suggestions for the next poll. Any thing, no matter how obscure, weird or random will go into the poll. Keep the theme suggestions to a single word or two - so you could have Cats, or Blue, or Holidays, or Warmth etc. Really anything which could be illustrated in cross stitch.


Looking forward to reading them all!
