I was awake in the wee hours one night trying to come up with a way to improve the bingo games we have had on The Stitchers' Village in chat. I then started thinking of an idea for a mystery stitch. There is something to be said for the thinking process in the middle of the night. TSV will be hosting a new activity starting July 5. The Mystery Stitch Bingo will run for 25 days. The chart will be divided into 25 squares. Each square will be assigned a number to imitate with a bingo card. On the first day of the activity, the middle "Free" space will be posted. for the next 24 days, a random square will be posted. After the last square has been posted, the first person to post a picture of the stitched piece will win the grand prize. Anyone who posts a picture of any stitched portion of the project in the 5 days following the posting of the last square will be put into a drawing for some additional prizes. The charts will be 100w x 100h (generally) and the daily posting charts will only be 20x20. This should make it easy to catch up if you miss a day here and there. I hope we all have a great time with this.
I will admit that, when I started working on the design, the idea of the 20 x 20 squares was stuck in my head. I ended up with a spot sampler called "Summer Garden". The "water feature" that is in the center is shown here.
When I redid the site at the beginning of 2018, our membership in the social area dropped and I am working to get it built back up. The community is a great place to interact with your fellow stitchers!!
