We have been chatting a bit on the Raised Stumpwork Group about having a challenge to create a Post Card ( 4 inches X 6 inches) or Journal Page ( 8 inches X 8 inches) to commemorate the London Olympic 2012 Games. Then I thought why not open it to all the Stitchin Fingers members who may enjoy stitching something to remember these fantastic games.
I am truly looking forward to seeing all the events and seeing all the wonderful sites and sound of London and all of the UK. I am not good at sketching but I plan to do so during the games. I was thinking that by October or November we could all display our wee pieces of art in this challenge.
What do you all think?? I hope many embroidery artist will join in on the fun. Thanks Hugs Judy
I think this a great idea Judy as I am sure people would love to interpret the games in a fiber way.
Hello Sharon, Thanks for your support. Much appreciated. I hope many will jump in and join the fun. I reckon it will be fantastic to see many fabric/wool stitchery PC and Journal Pages that would reflect the the Olympics 2012 Games. Hugs Judy
Judy. Are we still keeping it to Stumpwork as discussed in that Group or are we going to work it in any technique we like?
This sounds like a fab idea, Judy. Will try and make some time to put something together. Dianne.
Hello Everyone, We are on vacation and just found internet access. Grace I think it would be fun to do stumpwork or any other techniques you would like. Glad to have you join us DI. Hugs Judy
I think it sounds like fun. Does it have to be raised stumpwork, or will any type of embroidery be allowed? I would love to try an Olympic piece.
Thats sounds alot of fun, count me in Bethx
What a brilliant ideax
I'd like to join in too........not sure whether I'll make a page or a postcard, but nonetheless I think it's a wonderful idea.....thanks Stumpwork group....
Great idea, Judy. My mind is going a mile a minute, thinking of the games and what I come up with!! Keep up the good work.
Sounds like my sort of challenge! I'm in!!
Hello Everyone, Glad to see more artist join in on the fun. One can use any emboridery technique they would like to use. I plan to use some raised embroidery on mine Journal Page. I would like a showing of our London Olympics London 2012 creation to be shown the middle of November. That should give everyone a good amount of time to create these pieces of art. Thanks to everyone for joining in. Hugs Judy
