Time to start another Stitch Along challenge, I hope you will join me. This week you need to think "Stitch Along". Huh? Yeah really. Think of those words.

Rules for Week 1

I'm going to start a grid with the words "Stitch Along" down one side and then I want you to think of as many words associated with quilting, sewing, fabric, embellishments etc starting with each letter. It could be a technique, a fabric color or something you would include in your artwork. I'll start you off with a few words, you can add more or use what I have. I've separated them listing colors in the first column, techniques in the second, other useable words in a third. Not all sections need to have something in them, but the more you have, the more selection you get to work with.

Grid

Now, select only one word from each row (eg one word for S, T will need two since we have two T's, one word for I and so forth). You need at least one from each column too (in other words, don't select all colors - not much you can do with that!) Collect the items if you can or make note of it as a technique like applique and take a photo of your collection for the April Gallery. 

Feel free to email me with more words to add to the grid. You can email me: info @ arbeedesigns . com   (removing the spaces)
