Guild Challenge

Our guild is meeting early this month.  Next week!  I really haven't had enough time to let any ideas percolate for our 'sinchie' challenge.  The theme this month is houses.  This is what I have thrown together but I am not loving it.  Hopefully I can come up with a better idea in time for the meeting.  If not, it is not the end of the world.

Work in Progress Wednesday

I think the embellishing is finished on this stocking.  This stocking is for my granddaughter.  I have included a piece of fabric from my Mom and Dad's clothing.  That makes it special to me but probably not to my granddaughter.  She has never met them.  I think it is more important that I include fabric from my husband and myself.  I don't know why I didn't think of that sooner!  I am considering doing that for the back of the stocking which I had intended to do just plain, one fabric.

November Bead Journal

This bead journal I have done in preparation for teaching a beading class next year.  I have worked diligently to have a lot of interesting bead embroidery stitches on this piece. I am calling it finished for now but feel like there is something not quite right about it.  I am unsure what it is so I will set it aside and wait for the answer to come to me.

Do you enjoy the words as much as I do?  I have so much fun finding positive messages to work into these little collages.

Work in Progress Wednesday

Make do mend is the challenge San Fransisco School of Needlework is hosting.  I love participating in their challenges.  I have embellished these well-worn jeans for the challenge.  I can't wait to wear them!  I think they are pretty funky and fun.

New Zealand piece

I added some beading to this piece.  I used a funky french knot to attach the beads.  If I would have used a lighter colour thread it would be more obvious.
