Fab 'n' Funky Challenge - Challenge #108 - 'Try Something New'

Hi Everyone,

This weeks been fun, still awaiting a decision from the DVLA regarding letting me drive again, but I suppose I should give them to the end of the week before I start pestering them!!!

I'll tell you that you each used the title 'Love is in the Air' really well, gosh there are a lot of images I want now!!!  I loved how each and everyone of you used them and of course, coloured the images with your chosen medium.  I thought they were amazing.  However, there can only be one Winner, please check out the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge blog to find out if it was you.  But I must thank all of you for you wonderful creations, they were all fantastic.

Well the theme this week is simply called . . .

'Try Something New'....

and this week we are very lucky to be sponsored by:

Welcome to My Creative Classroom. MCC is an online arts and crafts learning center. Our interactive and in-depth courses are instructor led and filled with wonderful projects and techniques to help you get the most out of your supplies.

It's a really good Web Page, to give you ideas, I think I will be going back to check it out.

And here is what I have created to share with you . . .

Materials Used

Coaster Cover
Pattern - Flowers and Fruit

Now Cross Stitch is not a new thing to me, but it is in the fact I have not done any since my Stroke, I found it difficult because I can only use one arm and hand, and it does happen to be my non-dominant hand. In the end I resorted to using my teeth to pull the needle through.  

It took ages but I am pleased with what I have achieved.

Please Remember:

  2. Use what you like to create your project ........ as long as it's a legal Stamp; not indecent.
