I've decided that in 2021, I'm going to do more challenges like the 100 day project, to broaden my stitching, art and papercrafting skills.
This year's 100 day project is starting earlier this year on the 31st January (previously it's been an April start). I'll talk about that in a future post. The first challenge that I have started this year is Anne Brooke's 52 week tag challenge. This challenge involves stitching a tag following the theme for that week and you can see people's work with the hashtag #52tagshannemade
For week one, the theme was white.
To make this tag I had a base of vintage linen napkin that I decorated with lace, a ruffle of net, suffolk puffs, beads and lots of french knots. I stitched the piece onto a Tracie Fox tag.
Week two's theme was heart.
For this tag I kantha stitched scraps of Victorian silk and floral cotton fabrics onto a piece of cotton. I added a blue silk heart and a heart charm and a strip of pink and gold trim. I stitched it onto another Tracie Fox tag and I added a tab made from a scrap of broderie anglais.
I'm looking forward to seeing what week three's theme is.
There's at least one more year long challenge that I'm going to do and I'll talk abut that in my next post.
