2018 daily Stitching
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.
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.
