Back in July, Checkout Girl held an Embroidereading Contest.
On August 1, when I shared news of the contest here, I offered an original verse to anyone who wanted to participate in the contest.
Karen, owner of Arctic Needle in Anchorage, took me up on the offer. I sent her a selection of verses, and she chose Sourdough Sherri, from my incomplete and unpublished Mother Moose Alaska Nursery Rhymes collection.
We didn’t win (sure, I helped!), but it is oh-so-fun to see this verse in stitches.
Check out the Embroidereading Flickr pool. Winners are announced here.
Something tells me we need to do this again, putting stitched poems on bookmarks.
I had a great time and would love to do more, a book of embroidered verses.
Oh, you know I love this idea!
