H is for Holiday Patches

 A friend talked me into getting this when she ordered them in for the guild.  Not that it took much persuasion as I had seen one of her "Patches" projects done.  Susan Kerndt has a whole series of these but I did a quick search and could not find them.  Below is a picture of the fabric I intend to use for this piece.
And if you want to see someone who as actually done some work on the piece, look at Terese's piece At Willow Tree Pond

A number of people did these in Denver. We had a lovely exhibit in Denver at the Foothills EGA group. There are pictures on their Facebook page.
I love this fabric.

Pretty design Beth. That is needlepoint right. How to you stitch on the fabric?

Thanks for the link to my blog, Beth.

Did you find a picture of the completed piece? Here's a link-OMG-its one of my favorite pieces. Your fabric looks like it will go wonderfully with this.

How has the first week of the challenge been for you so far? Are you meeting your goals of posting and hopping to other blogs? Looking forward to Sunday off?
My blog's giveaways are still going! I'm encouraging everyone to visit more stops.
Very neat. I don't have these skills, but I admire those who do.

This is going to be a lot of work but I think it will be worth it when it's done. Good luck with it :)

Lovely design. It's a mixture of needlepoint and fabric sewn onto the canvas?

Beth in IL said...

Jo-yes it is. Teresa-have to find the competed piece.
