Magic Carpet Challenge

Our Beaddreamz Magic Carpets challenge, hosted by Kristen, will commence at the beginning of March and proceed through until the end of May. We hope to challenge members to create a gorgeous little carpet combining bead and thread embroidery. This photo shows a perfect example of what can be achieved.

Kristen has chosen a 'floral' theme and has offered ideas on how this theme can be interpreted. Her suggestions include an underwater garden, complete with fish or seashell flowers, a shadow garden inspired by shadows thrown by flowers on a sidewalk, window or wooden floor or flowers represented by geometric designs of diamonds, squares, octagons, curves, etc.

Challengers will be given every assistance from choosing the best materials to use through to how to present the finished embroidery. Stitches and other techniques will be shared along the way.

Please consider joining in. The more the merrier.
