First problem : what will my first project be? I have a few options - captured here as inspiration for other stitch projects for me or maybe for you?
I want to do more with Mary Ann Moss's Stitch*Bookery class. Currently open and ongoing - different levels of cost depending on how long you want to sign up for HERE.
See the projects I've made HERE.
I have some hand-stitching options. I purchased this printed panel over a year ago!
So, after careful deliberation, my first stitched project is hand stitched butterflies with Sue Spargo. This will not preclude other things but it is great to have a decision made. After those long deliberations it was just as well I said 15 minutes was enough to spend in a day! I began by re-watching the initial lessons....
And I put my base piece together! Basic machine stitching just to anchor it but with rayon thread so a nice sheen if any of it can be seen by the time it's completed.
Very happy with what I've achieved Day 1 - it took longer than 15 minutes of course, but not hours....I feel so enthused and happy about this new stitchy direction ♥ I wanted to do more but I don't want to get unrealistic expectations of what I can achieve each day and I have other arty projects that are going to continue at the same time. I'll share daily on my instagram account and come back here next Thursday for a summary of the week. I promise the summary will be briefer than this first post!
