A Needle, Some Thread and a Sketch

SC344 blk

Saturday started the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges, on Splitcoast, always a fun time!! I might hear the sirens from the “challenge police” on this one as I combined…. 9…. nine of the challenges into one PLUS the Sketch Challenge for today too!

I’d had this idea rolling around in my head with this Spool & Tape set of wrapping thread around the spool since getting the stamps!

SC344 spool

I made some holes on the sides of the spool and with needle and embroidery thread, wrapped it! That’s a real quilting needle stuck through too!

Sew…. here are the challenges (besides the sketch that I flipped sideways)

  • Paint- I used watercolor crayons
  • Kraft- Using Kraft paper
  • Garden’s Bounty-I used Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety DP
  • Hand Stitch- Stitched the strip with embroidery floss
  • Distressing- With ink and tool
  • Piercing- Well, I had to pierce the spool and strip to sew but I didn’t think that counted, pierced the circle
  • Polka Dots- More Garden Variety DP
  • What’s In A Name-Using products/techniques along with the letters in your name.
    D istressing 
    A qua Brush 
    W ater Color 
    N eedle
  • Punch- Martha Stewart border punch
  • there was one for decorating your envelope, but I forgot to do it!! LOL
