For the summer challenge, you can choose from two canvases (or do both if you like). One is Good Ole Summertime pictured above. The other is Yellow Flowers* by Melissa Shirley. A link is available in the Summer 2012 Challenge discussion.
Colleen Church of the Needle Works is our challenge master this time around.
Rules will be available soon.
Just chatted with Colleen. When I saw how she'd set up her rules, I thought that they could apply to all the color options in the 1306 and 1329 designs a href="http://www.melissashirleydesigns.com/galsearch/?searchstring=bright+bouquet&searchlist=&Search=Search&dosearch">http://www.melissashirleydesigns.com/galsearch/?searchstring=bright...=>. Colleen agreed and would like to add a few stitch options for the other flower shapes. Personally, I'm a red girl, so I might end up doing both the watermelon and the flowers this summer. :) The bright bouquet designs come in three sizes (a few that are bigger than our challenge size, but if you want to stitch bigger, I'm not going to stop you) and can be pillows or purses.
If you haven't ordered your canvas, there's still time. Colleen a href="http://theneedleworks.com/">http://theneedleworks.com/> (512-451-6931) or your favorite local would be happy to order one for you.
We'll be starting our summer stitching on June 1 or thereabouts. I hope you'll join in the fun.
