Celebrating the Olympics with OSAAT

This week at One Stitch at Time, we're celebrating all things athletic, whether your project is inspired by a sports in general, an Olympic event, or even the Logo / Photo Inspiration (below right). 

I used Knight 3 by IKEsART to make a Belated Birthday card ... I do plan on watching the opening ceremony in London on July 27th (well, watching it on TV!), and I wonder if there will be much medieval decoration? Jousting isn't an Olympic sport, but it is the Official State Sport of Maryland! I'm hoping that Umbrella Jousting will gain popularity, because it's hilarious! 

This is only my second attempt at quilling; it sure is fun, but not as easy as it looks! I adhered the quilled pieces with Diamond Glaze -- many thanks to Helen for the tip!

Hope you'll join us at One Stitch at a Time for our "Sports / Olympics" challenge. For entries using a StitchyBear Store product (be sure to add a # after your name when entering), you could win a £10 voucher to Crafts from Joanna Sheen. You're welcome to enter the challenge using different products, but will instead be entered into the draw to win a $3 coupon to StitchyBear. Can't wait to see your projects!
