Challenge Revisited

Remember that time I suggested we have a stitching challenge? I think it was about a year ago... We'd all take the same freebie and substitute flosses and fibers and use a variety of finishing techniques. Then I found a pattern, but since it wasn't online anymore and I couldn't get the designer to return my e-mails, it just seemed like too much work. Well...

I've found the pattern. Small and straightforward. You can really do something with this.

Bent Creek Swirlygig (This pattern is not hosted on the designer's website, but the creator of this website does have the designer's permission to post these patterns.)

You stitch up your version, and send a photo (or two) to me. Don't post it to your blog, we want to keep these anonymous! I'll post the versions here and everyone will vote.

Let's say entries must be received by September 16th. We'll judge based on overall appearance, color, and material combination--it would be too hard to judge stitch quality from photographs.

Sound good? Get stitching!

I might be up for this, if I can remember to print the damned thing out at work tomorrow.

In lieu of a memory I am sending myself an e-mail now...

Anna, can non-bloggers participate? Sounds like fun!

Lee said...

I'm in! When you say send a photo or two, does that mean we may stitch it more than once and enter more than once?
