I wanted to do something different, be able to use my embroidery machine, and create a quilt that one could snuggle under on a rainy day. I decided to make a giant word search puzzle with the theme Rainy Day Fun.
There are several word search puzzle generators on the internet and I started by compiling a list of items/activities that had to do with a rainy day and plugged them into the word search puzzle generator. After several sessions with the words, I was happy with the result. The puzzle consists of 225 letters in a configuration of 15 letters x 15 letters, but you could make the puzzle any size that you want. My puzzle contains 23 words. You could have a lot of fun customizing the puzzle for anyone. Choose their favourite things, people, or activities and make a puzzle just for them. Although there are many puzzle generators on the internet, here’s the link for the one I used: http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com/WordSearchSetupForm.asp.
Now it was time to hit the embroidery.
