One Year of Stitches

Flowers are so cheerful.  It is a delight for me to stitch a flower each day. It was absolutely brilliant of me to think of doing flowers in January!  There is only fourteen more flowers to be added to this.

I heart Macro

Well, this isn't a macro shot but it was found at the wrecking yard where I take a lot of macro photos.  Like I have said before, it is the color and texture that really get me.

Progress on my Bead Journal

The body of the candle is finished.  I plan to do the the flame in gold beads.  These are not typical colors for me.  It is good for me to try something different even if it doesn't make me quite as happy.  I have come to like this even though there was a stage where I did NOT like it at all.  I am glad that I have persisted thus far.

Week #1 Journal Prompt

This quote didn't really grab me at first.  However, the more I thought about it the more I liked it.  I like the idea of having power.  I haven't decided on a journal for this year yet so I did this on a separate page.  Possibly I will do all the journal prompts this way and then bind them together at the end of the year.  The mandala was my own design that I colored.  I used Pan Pastels to color the rest of the page.

Work in Progress Wednesday

My stitch a day project is coming along nicely.  I am really enjoying it.  I am trying and learning new things.  That always feels good to me.  This little piece will be full of thirty one flowers by the end of the month.

Let the Crazy Quilting begin

Last year I took a break from the Crazy Quilt Journal Project.  I thought a lot about whether I would sign up for it this year.  I decided in the affirmative.  This is my January block.  My plan for the first four months of the year is to incorporate a bead journal project from a previous year.  These four blocks will then be stitched together.  I don't have a plan for the rest of year as yet.
