April 2015 Hastystitch Embroidery Challenge


Oh my goodness! I cannot believe I forgot about the April Hastystitch Embroidery Challenge! I got VERY sick at the end of March/beginning of April, and I’m just now starting to feel more like myself. So here it is! Have fun 🙂

Hastystitch is a monthly embroidery challenge for stitchers of all abilities. The only rule for Hastystitch is that you have fun! The descriptive words in the challenge can mean whatever you want them to mean. For example, if one of the challenge prompts is “orange”, you could embroider the word orange, embroider a picture of an orange, embroider ON an orange – the only limit is your own imagination.

When you post your works on social media, make sure you tag it with #hastystitch By tagging your photos, you’ll be able to connect with people all over the world who join in this fun, monthly embroidery challenge! I may even use your photos on my website or social media outlets.

Mary Corbet at Needle ‘n Thread has a great video tutorial for the fishbone stitch.
