Assisi Embroidery

I am program co-chair for our ANG chapter and we have quite a few cross stitchers in our group.  We decided to do this month's program on Assisi Embroidery.  Assisi stitching is named after Clare of Assisi, the patron saint of needleworkers, and her saint day falls on our meeting date, August 11.  My example is on linen (very small) which I worked under a magnifier.  It is cross stitch with a twist.  Instead of stitching the design (here the initial), you cross stitch the background and the void is the design.  Very sweet.

I have also been practicing flying! And yes it is HOT up there!

Keep looking up....
