Another finish within a calendar year! This was started in September of last year as a year-long project for my ANG Main Line Chapter. It’s the ANG Stitch of the Month from 2012, the 40th Anniversary Heart. Stitching was done in 9 months. And, thanks to Nimble Needle of NJ for another great pillow which will look cute on my guest bed next to a white puppy.

Stitch of the Month, 2012 finished

It was tough getting the hang of the heart-shaped background pattern but it was a good choice. I matched the color of the thread to the canvas. So, it fades in the background and doesn’t conflict with the patterns in the large heart.

Progress continues on the ANG 2012 Stitch of the Month. What’s also interesting about this design is each area was designed by a different person to celebrate ANG’s 40th Anniversary. And, I’ll finish stitching it in the year when Bill and celebrate our 30th anniversary!

Area 4 to the right of the heart is a tortoiseshell filling stitch. I filled in all of the octagons with vertical running stitches mainly because the area seemed too small to leave just some voided. But, by doing so, the pattern is not as evident.

Area 5 is the small heart. I really didn’t think it was large enough for the Trellis pattern. But, by centering the design, it compensated on each side uniformly as it was supposed to!

Area 6 is immediately left of the heart (& a small section at the bottom right side of the small heart). And, this is the Victorian Step. It gives an interesting pattern just discernable in this solid purple.

With the new year kicking off last month, we started the 2012 Stitch of the Month from ANG’S website. That’s the 40th Anniversary Heart design. Several of us are doing it in red and one in another colorway. One person is doing a quatrafoil instead of the heart.

Here’s September’s (T-stitch) & October’s (Criss-Cross Hungarian) areas completed.
