The Monday “What have you done lately?” accountability post, where I announce my Needle and Thread: Stitching for Literacy program promotion goal for the week and fess up on last week’s goal.
It was in Alan’s Inbox on Christmas Eve. Now I need to send a logo.
I’ve been stitching samples of possible class pieces, but I have yet to settle on one. I’m pretty excited about the direction it’s taking, though. I’m trying to include a variety of fibers and stitches since these are collectors, and I want to give a rather broad overview of the craft. On my current model I’ve used the following:
- Handpainted Caron Watercolours
- Rainbow Gallery silk pearl
- DMC pearl cotton
- Rainbow Gallery rayon ribbon
- Kreinik metallic
- Dinky Dyes hand-dyed 6-strand silk floss
- DMC 6-strand cotton floss
- The Gentle Art hand-dyed wool
It’s got cross stitch, blackwork, and a few specialty stitches (waffle, compound cross, eyelet).
It’s on plain white aida, and I’m thinking I might be able to include an additional part on canvas.
My goal this week is to settle on a design, including colors, and make a materials list. I want to have a picture of it for you next week. Eeeeek! I said it; now I have to do it.
