Chris Booth Heart Challenge

 From Chris: I used freezer paper to cut hearts and adhered them to muslin to serve as masks. I used fabric paint to apply random brush strokes over it all to set the colour scheme and create a background. I removed the freezer paper revealing blank heart shapes in which to use stitchery. It was interesting to use the one stitch in different groupings to create different patterns. Chris Booth

This challenge runs to the end of February.  Please send in your photos to:



Angela met the Heart challenge


From Angela: I took up the Heart Challenge. This time, I drew a heart. I did a simple Stem Stitch on the heart itself and filled it with Black Work stitches. I’ve also added some Flower Embellishments on the side with pearls.
