Over on Stitcherie.com we had the idea that it would be fun to do quarterly challenges. KB came up with the idea and it’s been a blast. We pick a canvas and then invite different needlepoint designers or shopowners to create the rules.
Sometimes they say you have to use such and such a thread. Other times they suggest certain stitches. Who knows what the rules will be until the game begins.
Our mystery for June 1 – September 1 can be seen here. There are several choices of canvases. Good Ole Summertime from Dreamhouse Ventures is the one I have decided to play with. You know how I feel about pink and green.
I realize that it’s now well in to August and I’m just now admitting that I’m going to do this challenge. That might mean that I do it next year. Oh well, the ideas are in my head and once I get started I’ll post pictures here and on Stitcherie to show you what I’m doing. It’s not too late to join us. It’s a great way to stretch your wings and experiment with no pressure.
