Yay! Alphabet! (JUL/AUG Challenge)

It’s that time again…and I’m not talking about female cycles here. I mean the creativity fest that is a Sprite Stitch Challenge! This time, it’s all about the alphabet. I considered doing my username until I counted the letters in it…too many! So, I went for this instead:

B is for Black Mage 😀

Been reading into various styles of stitching and needlework recently and was inspired by Assisi embroidery to make the wall hanging you see here. Assisi work involves stitching the background of a piece and leaving the main motif blank.

I decided to make it into a wall hanging instead of just framing it this time, mostly because I didn’t have a nice enough frame for it. So I made some twisted cord out of luxe wool and stitched it on 🙂

The current challenge ends on 31st August, and the entries I’ve seen so far are great. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing riotpatch‘s entry as she’s using sprites from the Card Gallery (which can be found at http://cardgallery.tales-tra.com/main.htm ).

Coming soon: September’s Mini Swap – Oblivion WIP – Techie stitching – and hopefully more 🙂

  1. Oh, I love this so very much! Did you design the background yourself? Either way, very well done!
