Do You Love a Mystery?
A stitching mystery, that is....
Well, check out the American Needlepoint Guild website (www.needlepoint.org) and look at the brand new STITCH OF THE MONTH 2010 project called "A Promise of Mystery" designed by Sue Reed.
AREN'T YOU ALL READY TO START SOMETHING NEW AND FUN TO GET THE YEAR OFF TO A GOOD START? Well, January is the perfect month to begin a project that you build on month by month. And if you like counted canvaswork - especially geometrics - you'll certainly enjoy stitching on this piece too! This month is the start of the project, with the instructions on what materials are needed, where to start, and a schematic showing the overall dimensions of the piece (which has a finished size of apprx 8.5" x 8.5" on 18 ct. mono canvas.)
I can't resist a good counted geometric, so I'll be starting to work on it this month myself.... All I have to do is figure out what colors I'm in the mood to stitch with right now... pinks? blues? greens? hmmmm, that's the biggest mystery for me right now!
P.S.: The thread palettes shown in the above photos are NOT the threads used in Sue's mystery design - I just used them for illustrative purposes only.
