Totally excited for this challenge!  An I'm so honored you used my screen for an example!  Now I'll have to see what I have in the old Garage to play with.

Great Idea! Grin

I am so excited for this! Just wanted to ask one tiny question to make sure I am on the right track. We can use a vintage item that has been embroidered and "revamp" it right? I have some old items from my great grandmother that would be perfect to revamp!

Yep! You can use older embroidery/needlework and revamp it.

What about a monstrous cross-stitch project that we started 15+ years ago, never finished and don't intend to finish???

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

Kitty, can it be any type of stitchery on any media?  I had an idea and just found a way to make it happen, but it involves a very old embroidery style on modern 'fabric'.

Will that be acceptable?
