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???

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?

Okay, I know you said "any style of needlework", but I am kind've self-taught stitch as you go, do I have to follow any kind of known stitches, or keep with a certain kind of stitch to get involved with the challenges?

Nope, no certain stitch to follow. Just do what ya want to Smiley. It just has to be stitched in some fashion (embroidery, needlepoint, cross stitch, crewel, your own stitches)

Not a stupid question at all! When the dates come to post, I'll have directions posted. They will look something like this.

It's a shame I only saw this after coming home from my parent's. My grandma showed me a sampler embroidered by my mom back in the 60's. It's... well, the best I can say is that it's finished. I love the unsure hand, the hesitant stitches, and her visible hate of needlework, that made her finish her homewordk as quickly as possible.

I wanted to clean it up a bit (bad storage) and maybe give the sampler a modern traetment, maybe adding a few stitches of my own... it's really a shame I left it 500 km from here. Maybe I'll ask my grandma to send it to me...

I'd really love to have some embroidery my mom did, alongside with my own. And I still have some amazing embroidery done by my great-grand-mother. I can't believe she was that gifted ! It was for a potwarmer, but she died before she could sew it together, so now I have only the embroidery, in a weird shape. I'm never ever going to throw those piece away, but I have to think of something to display them.

(Loora, stop babbling and just say how much this project inspires you).

Oh,  spit! 

My idea was decent,  but my materials are not up to snuff and I can't do it justice in the time left!

Good luck, everybody else!  Can't wait to see your stuff!

I try to have one every quarter (every 3 months) sometimes sooner, sometimes later but at lease 4 a year.
