"Group" Therapy for Stitchers

I have noticed that people have been responding very positively to my gallery posts.  Also, on the message board I frequent, someone is always asking the rest of us to post our finishes on a particular theme.  There seems to be an interest in groups of finishes that share a common theme or type of construction.  I know I always like to look at such groupings on the 123stitch message board.  And I frequently see  new-to-me designer or finishing techniques and end up learning something new about my craft.  Then, there is the sheer entertainment value of seeing so many varied projects reflecting tastes that are both similar to my own and very different from my own.  So over the next few weeks, whenever I am at a loss for a topic, I think I'll compile another gallery post.

Topics I have in mind are: biscornus, throw pillows, pin pillows and pin cushions, stitching accessories, totes, witches, dragons, Quakers, patriotic, nauticals, samplers, teapots and tea cups, and botanicals.  Of course, there will be some repetition and crossover.  The same piece might show up in a gallery of patriotic pieces and in a gallery of throw pillow or banners.

Which would you like to see first?  Or can you think of other  areas of interest?

Dragons! Dragons first!

I think this is a great idea and I'm looking forward to seeing the posts.

How great! Everything sounds great--can't wait to see more of your gallery posts! I just don't have nearly what you have in finished stitches! Thanks for sharing!

It will be lovely to see whatever you choose, its always fun to see what others have finished over time.

Whatever you choose will be nice! Though I'd prefer botanicals, botanicals first! ha ha
