I have my piece drafted for the Stitch at Home challenge sponsored by the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design. The challenge, Summer of Love, coincides with the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Be-In at Golden Gate Park. My design is reminiscent of a 1960's poster, I am trying to decide whether to use white cotton fabric or a light denim colored cotton fabric, I'll know more once the 3 color DMC floss arrives. I think I mentioned in my early post DMC is a supporter of the challenge and once you sign up you choose from several color palettes of embroidery floss DMC will send to you at no cost. What I like is you get to select your main choice and 2 other just in case the first choices aren't available. The challenge is free to anyone here is the link if you are interested it taking part in this challenge.
You also have the choice to send in the finished piece or a photo of the finished piece for the exhibition. Also you must use the 3 colors from DMC. You are not limited to embroidery other forms of needlework are also welcome.
I'll post my piece once I have it ready to stitch, knowing myself I will tweak it a few times before I transfer to fabric. Right now I am trying to decide if I want to trace my pattern onto the fabric or scan my pattern and print it on the stitch and wash away product which I love using though at time can be a bit difficult to stitch through depending on the fabric.
