Mystery Stitch Bingo

 The first edition of the cross stitch activity, Mystery Stitch Bingo, started on July 5, 2018.  When I sat down to create the first design for this, I decided to use a 100 x 100 stitch chart and divide it into 25 sections with 20wx20h stitches each.  I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but got hung up on the 25 sections.  What was created was a "Summer Garden" themed design with 25 spot motifs representing garden features.  These included some water features.  I designed this based on the Sulky cotton petite palette that I used in my "April Showers" design.  I mainly did that because I had them on hand.  I believe that the participants enjoyed the activity.  There were pop-up prizes for days 1, 5, 10, 15, and 20.  The prizes were awarded to the person who first posted a picture of the stitched section for the day.  The grand prize went to Sandy W., who was the first to post a stitched picture of the entire chart.  The next of these will start on September 1 with a design from Rosewood Manor.  I thank Karen for her generousity to and support of The Stitchers' Village!!  Here is a representation of the July chart which will be avaliable as part of The Stitchers' Village Designs portfolio:
