This post includes the weekly wrap up and a YTD picture of progress! So, two weeks down and 50 to go! I am interested to see the size of a year of stitches….
I decided the sky section of my week one needed some clouds, so I added a couple of vintage glass pearls from my bead stash. I love these beads and wish that I picked up all the local bead store had at the time! I made a lovely necklace with a teal sea horse ceramic pendant from them…a nice reminder of the beach during this icy weather.
Stitch: Simply added embellishments, Vintage glass pearls from local bead store
Fiber: Leftover Christopher metallics, using single strand
This week was mainly a regrouping to try to plan a little better for this year long project. I realized I wanted to still do what I normally do while stitching, adding the year and sign the project. I also found out I need to plan a little better about timing, so hopefully sections or themes I will complete in 7 days. So for week two, I added the year and my initials with some embellishments of stitches and beads. (For stitches and fibers used during week two, see previous blog posts for those days.) I am still using fibers from my extensive stash, trying to resist temptation to purchase fibers I see other embroiderers using! I did purchase “Boho Embroidery” this week and hope to incorporate some of her ideas and stitches in the future.
