Are you joining in?

A number of us are taking part in a challenge – 365 days of a minimum of 15 minutes creativity each day. Why not join us? Nothing formal – just do SOMETHING creative – and yes, that cake that you thought about making will count as well….. if you make it.

As an encouragement there are a few daily photo prompts being published here, interspersed with some colour prompts too. They won’t come every day of the year – but already I’ve seen the results of some lovely work.

If you decide to take part and blog about your results – don’t forget leave a comment at the bottom of the appropriate post. In the meantime – here’s a little stitching based on the last colour challenge.  The picture will take you there.

What are you doing on Saturday?

Due to pressure of work and family committments there will be no Be Creative in July. However, here is a chance to be as creative as you like and be rewarded for your efforts with an exchange!

Saturday August 2nd has been designated the National Celebration of Stitch. Various UK branches of the Embroiderers’Guild have organised venues for stitching, but what about those who are not members of a branch – or who can’t get to a venue – or just want to stitch where they are ……. Well, here is an event for you!

Artist Trading Cards are small works of art that can be made using any technique, but in celebration of Stitch this post is to announce an exchange of the little stitched cards. There is no specific theme, the only criteria is that some stitch must be included somewhere – hand stitching, machine stitching – your choice. ALL STANDARDS ARE WELCOME – YOU ONLY NEED AN INTEREST IN STITCHING TO TAKE PART.

If you would like to take part please complete the form below with your name and address. By completing the form you are committing to making an ATC and sending it to the participant whose name you will be given. This form goes directly to me – you will receive details from ATCexchange (at) gmail.com – you can also email directly if you prefer. Please pass the word too.
