Challenge 2019

My EGA Chapter offers a “Challenge” each year as a fundraiser. For completed items from our individually chosen challenge list, we are granted entries into a prize drawing at the end of the year.  It’s my first time participating, but here goes my challenge list:

1. original needlepoint designed by my daughter!! (Definitely the most intriguing item on my list)

2. Ambrosia Honey – needlepoint design from EGA Needlearts magazine

3. Autumn Square – Laura Perin needlepoint design

4. Mother’s Heart – cross stitch design from Shepherd’s Bush

5. small piece for Christmas exchange (precise item is a secret!)

6. Santa – needlepoint canvas by Leigh Walker and stitch guide/instruction by JaneAnn Sleeman

7. Canvas Stitch Alphabet Sampler – needlepoint design by Light House Designs

8.  Blackwork Band Sampler – blackwork design by Rae Iverson

9. Honeycomb pin cushion – backstitch and stumpwork piece from Stitcher’s World Magazine

10. Do the Right Thing – cross stitch design by Lizzie Kate

Wish me luck on completing my list!

Sisters + Friends

20190106_120509

I made this cute piece for my sister for Christmas.  It’s “Sisters + Friends” from The Drawn Thread.  It was a fast and easy stitch, and I got to try some nice finishing for it.  It’s finished with a ladder stitch to a fabric backing.
