SO when I saw this a page a day diary for sale in the foyer of the service station I knew I had to get it and begin something - anything and include a stitch each week. Now will this happen? Nothing ventured, nothing gained as they say, so here goes...
I was reading a blog earlier - Serendipity, I think - who had been advised to put some tasks she wished to set herself in a bowl and draw them like a raffle instead of having a static list so I shall be taking a list of stitches and instead of doing them alphabetically I shall choose one on a Sunday, stick it on the relevant date in the diary and only do that stitch on the pages that week - how's that for an idea? Come and join in if you like, the more the merrier and it will make me keep doing it too!
I hope to create random pages of ideas, using found items which could be pictures, words, lables or anything which grabs my attention and can be glued down. I am now off to sort the washing piles out, print off a list of stitches and begin today's page before today becomes tomorrow!
Bye for now...
Bag of Stitches made - Son has suggested that as there are so many I should have two stitches per week - This week's stitches are Straight Stitches: Oriental (Canvas) and Crossed Stitches: Detached Square Filling (Pulled Thread Work)
To give added interest I also have a bag of colours to decide what the colour of the week will be - threads and paint etc - This week is red
