I’m crazy about the American Southwest. The magnificent scenery, the colors, the Native American art of all kinds, the wonderful history of it all.
It continually inspires me in so many ways.
This month it can inspire you as well, with the Twinchy Challenge. Your design could be as simple as the one pictured above, a petrogplyph (rock painting) on a “painted” background, similar to many of the rocks you see in Arizona and New Mexico.
The Twinchy at the top of this post is one from November’s gallery. Check out that post for complete instructions on how to make this Twinchy yourself.
It could be based on a Zuni fetish, Navajo jewelry, those wonderful Native American pots, the Grand Canyon. There’s so much to choose.
Have fun with this one!

Janet…..imagine my surprise when I checked your blog and found my four-way bargello project. Thank you for the wonderful post. My blog saw a jump in visits. I really enjoy your blog and I am glad that you post often. I post at least once a week, for my own record, but also because it is what I like to see on other blogs. I have finished my Colorful Heart (partial four way bargello) and will post the finished photos later today. Keep up the good your. You are a great source of inspiration. Jan aka stitchlady
