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!
