1 Year of Stitches, Embroidery

1 Year of Stitches Recap: 10 Embroideries from January

1 Year of Stitches

It’s been just over a mon­th since I—along with many, many others—started 1 Year of Stitch­es. Since that time, I’ve seen more than amaz­ing embroi­dery; friend­ships have formed across the world in the Face­book group and Insta­gram!

It’s so great to see all the dif­fer­ent direc­tions that peo­ple are tak­ing this project. Some are cre­at­ing a new embroi­dered icon every day, while oth­ers have a more abstract take on the whole thing. For me, I’ve been cre­at­ing lit­tle illus­trat­ed vignettes. I’m hop­ing that by the end of 2017, my 12″ hoop will be com­plete­ly cov­ered.

I like the rou­tine that this project has estab­lished for me. Pri­or to start­ing 1 Year of Stitch­es, I’d waste away on my com­put­er till bed­time. Now, know­ing that I have to stitch, I plan to be off of the com­put­er by a cer­tain time so I can ded­i­cate ample embroi­dery time. It’s good for me—especially with my ten­den­cy to get sucked into inter­net holes.

Each mon­th, I’ll recap a selec­tion (but cer­tain­ly not all) of my favorite projects. I’m look­ing for­ward to see where all of the­se go!
