Patterns Galore from Margaret Bendig Underway UPDATED

Jan has decided to work Margaret Bendig's "Patterns Galore."  

Jan is particularly good with color so I am anxious to see how this develops once she gets the outlines done and starts raiding her stash for color.  I'll update this as she works.

UPDATE:  Jan has the first four blocks done.  It's interesting she started at the bottom.  I'd have started at the top and worked down.  Of course the instructions probably specified the working order and I don't know if this is just upside down to reach easier....

More about Melita's Books

Melita reviews two more books in her collection--Father B's and SharonG's.

Father B's book comes in various editions.  Suzanne Howren (you know her as one of the authors of the Stitches for Effects series) has taken some of his best stitches and rediagrammed them for modern stitchers.

SharonG's one of my stitching heroes.  Her SENSE book is small but fabulous and full of good information.

Neither book is large but both are worth having.
