I have been cross stitching for years, but I have never sat down and really mastered the related art of embroidery. So when I came across a blog recently about a person who had stitched every day for 365 days I decided this would be just the project for me.
I shared my crafty plans on Facebook and a young woman who is friends with my son said she’s like to stitch along with me.
I have everything we need. I have two unused embroidery hoops. I have a large scrap of cloth that would work well for embroidering on. I have plenty of colourful bits and bobs of
embroidery yarn from past projects. And best of all, I have an accomplice.
I’ve looked up the various stitches. I cut the fabric to fit the two hoops. Beyond that I have no plan. The plan is not to plan, just to do. Chaos lives in poorly thought out plans, but creativity lives in well thought out spontaneity, right?
Here we go, Jan 1, 2017. Day number one of 365.
