Just Stitching

All I have to share is the stitching I've been doing, I've actually done some other stuff but it's just not worth sharing. I'm up to 17 days of mark making and I'm very underwhelmed with what I've done and I've done quite a bit of knitting on my sweater of many colors, the body is done and the first sleeve is in progress.

Daily and Weekly Stitching

I don't have much to share this week, I'm still stitching away on the indigo colored quilt and I'm still making marks daily but I have to tell you they are pretty boring so I didn't even take pictures.

Lots of New Starts

I've been busy starting new things!

Weekly Leaf #1

2018 daily Stitching
days 1-4

I also have a birthday coming up in March so I'm doing a very simple daily for 71 days, since I'll be 71. I have never been able to stick with a sketchbook or drawing routine but I love to make marks, so I'm doing 71 days of mark making. I've started with an old sketchbook, a bottle of India ink that has been around for several years and a scruffy old paintbrush.

Day #1



I like the first two, not thrilled with todays, but the whole idea is to just make some marks on a page everyday.

Over New Years weekend I pieced together a quilt just for myself because I love the colors. I had a pack of 10" squares and on of 5" squares from two Moda fabric collections, Shibori and Shibori II.

The back is leftovers and a couple pieces of my hand dyed fabric.

There is flannel in between and I'm stitching it with a long running stitch in pearl cotton, because I love the soft texture.

That's it for the start of the New Year, I'll be linking up to "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching".
