Sewing is one of my FAVORITE techniques to do on a LO! So I challenge you this month to use sewing on a page or pages. You can do it by machine or hand, but no faux stitching. That means NO digital or doodled stitching.

*Twist*
For an extra vote at the end of the month stitch a square or diamond grid.

Rules:
1)Must be new as of today 5/1/13, and you have until 5/31 to enter.
2)It can be any size,paper only, 2 pager,a card, and/or a mini album.
3)Link LO to this thread and please enable public embedding.
4)If you get love please return the favor
5)LO can be used in other challenges here or on other sites.
6)1 entry per person.

To do PUBLIC EMBEDDING:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on 'Edit Image' tab at the top on the left side of the layout.
3. Scroll down to the bottom left side.
4. Check the box that says, ‘Allow Public Embedding’.

To link LO's:
1. Go to the layout in your gallery.
2. Click on the 'link/embed' words.
3. Click on 'IMG code' button.
4. Copy and paste the code which starts [url...] into the forum thread.

At the end of the month PM me with your top 3 LO's and include your own #. Then I'll do a poll where we can vote for a winner.

My Examples with the twist:
Remember Monterey ~ BOAF May Kit Reveal By DreaSlee

I'm not sure if I want to continue with this new format for challenges. Now I can't upload any LO's here to show you my examples. I'm also not sure how we're going to work out the twist. What do you guys think?

So if you use the new format for challenges, you can't upload ANY los to the thread?? hmmm. I Guess you could just reference the link in this thread to the sample in your gallery. Just thinking out loud.

I guess I could do that, but still hate not being able to post here.I already tried to delete this challenge so I can go back to the old way, but it won't let me. I'm waiting to hear back from tech support.

Wait, what do you mean you can't put your LO's here? Is it just the first post that you can't edit? Besides not being able to mark which LO's have the twist, there are no numbers in the gallery for voting at the end of the month either. I am really curious to see if this new thing takes or not after this month. I know I'm not going to use it for my challenges. I think it's great for manufacturer or sb.com sponsored challenges that have a random draw, but I don't think it's good at all for member challenges. That said, I'm here to be a guinea pig with you this month, Drea. I'm in.

Yeah I can't post here at all. I'm SO not liking this!! I think there will be a lot more drop offs and less loving left because there's no way to keep track of entries.

I thought I had left a comment here. I did join on the first page. Please, count me in, again.

I also noticed that the challenge is gone on the day the challenge is over. Sometimes, I still need to comment after the end of the month. I guess I can go under the Forums tab for that. I like that you can instantly link, but that's about all. I miss seeing the lo's in the thread.

As long as it's letting me, I'm going to still post all of the entries to the front, so I can keep track of the twist. Just make sure to let me know if you've done the twist.

You are kidding. OMG - this new 'feature' is less than useless. And, pardon my bi+chiness, but if the hostesses are still going to link to the front, what is the point of even looking at that gallery? I would rather see the LO's in the thread too.

Kelly - I looked to see what you were mentioning, and there is a link at the top for 'Closed Challenges' so I think you can still see the entries if you go into there.

Pat (gentlewood farms) let me know that you can still get to challenges that have ended. On the new challenges page, there is a tab for those. It is "closed/completed challenges".

It still says that your image is disabled for public embedding. If you look on the top post here there's instructions on how to do it. Did you take your photo indoors? I like taking photos of my work outside in natural light to get the closest colors of my page.

ACU! If you don't see your LO on the front it's because you don't have public embedding enabled on your page.

I'm so frustrated that the front post that I made keeps getting deleted. I just got done updating it and hoping it stays up. Please keep on eye on your LO's because it looks to me like there's some missing from the first page, not the one I created. I'm not sure though, so double check. I'm still debating if I want to continue with the new format. What way do you guys like better? Or does it make a difference?

Will have to catch up with lovins. But I am just really tired...think my pills are kicking in. So maybe tomorrow!

I don't understand the whole new double page/challenge thing. I know that it is easy to just click which challenge you want it to go to instead of copy-paste, that's about it.

As a host I'm posting the entries the way that I usually do it because the way they're doing it isn't numbered which will make voting a lot harder. There's also no way to keep track of the twist. Having the entries on the front without the numbers makes it harder to keep up with comments too. But I'll keep it this way as long as my own front post stops getting deleted. I'm taking over the stamping challenge next month too, so just need to figure out which format I like better.

I think whichever was is easier for you, as the hostess of the challenge, is fine with the rest of us. We are all pretty accustomed to the old cut and paste. Right???

I still haven't decided about next month's challenges, but I still have a couple of weeks left to think about it. I'm sorta leaning towards the old way though. We had a couple new entries and our first done with the twist. Be sure to check them out!

I'm not sure if this counts for the twist. The bottom banner/tag has a diamond grid in the net stitching.

DD and I got the sewing machine out of storage last evening. It had been in the barn since we moved here in 2010 (hard to believe we've been here for 3 years already!!) I'm not sure if it even works but we're going to try it this weekend..maybe. We have a very busy weekend. ***cross your fingers***

Well, I didn't get one finished this month - funny, I seem to sew in spurts. This month was a no sewing month - I'll probably end up sewing on several next month. LOL Beautiful work, ladies. I enjoyed looking at your LO's.
