An Embroidery Challenge...want to play?


I just added this home decor piece to my Etsy shop once again.

The fabric panel is my own design and incorporates an antique journal page that I've had for several years. The page always spoke to me and I've wandered back to it often trying to think of a way to use it in my work. With the advance of technology and fabric printing I was able to cost effectively turn it into fabric. The writing on this piece is beautiful calligraphy. I love the doodle of a leaf and the date.

While I was working on it I thought it might be fun to have a challenge. Let me know if you would be interested in participating. I will put the panel in my shop, without embroidery so that you can embroider your Queen Anne's Lace in the stitches and colors you prefer. Then embellish, turn it into a pillow, quilt, wall hanging...whatever you wish. I'll open a flickr group and we can post pictures...I'll find some people to judge the challenge too!

Now in comments, or by convo through my Etsy shop let me know if you would like to participate. If I get enough interest we'll move forward!

Aw, I wish I could! Too busy making hats right now, but this is a great idea! Your piece is gorgeous.

I don't embroider, but can I watch and cheer from the sidelines?
