A Year of Stitches – Days 1-26

img_0401

Having stuck to one of my new year plans (not I’m not using the word resolution) for nearly a month I thought I would share it with you. The project isn’t called ‘1 Year of Stitches’ and the idea is that you do some embroidery every day and post your progress in social media. There are no rules. I am following  the approach taken by the originators of idea and just sewing whatever I feel like. I want to develop my more creative side, use my imagination etc as most of my sewing is done through kits. Others have worked out designs which they are doing a bit of each day. If you want to have a look at others check out #1yearofstitches or @1yearofstitches on instagram. If you are interested in taking part there is a Facebook page you can join.

    I love your take on this, it’s like you are doodling with thread. I imagine at the end of the year you’ll have an amazing piece with many great memories associated with the different patterns. Even if you stopped now (but don’t) you have something lovely.

    I love this idea- small flowers being added for each gardening day. Another way to celebrate gardening, plants and our gardening life. All the best, Helen.

  4. It looks like fun. Are you enjoying it?

  5. I’ve been following a few of these on Instagram and it’s such a lovely idea. A New Year project which is completely achievable! It’s looking lovely 🙂

    I liked the way you captioned the pictures – so we coud see you really were ‘getting bolder’! – and the way you were adding flowers for each gardening day
