Finishing up 2017 and getting 2018 ready to go

I finished the last of my weekly stitching pieces this week.

Here's the whole years worth of Signs Of Life: The five universal shapes

Next year I think I'm going back to leaves, at least I'm starting out with leaves. I have several of the botanical/eco printed leaves on silk that I've decided to use. This is what I have for a start, if I decide to keep going with it I will have to print more.

I'm going to stitch them onto canvas, in the picture above I have the leaves laying on top of the individual pieces of canvas. I've yet to decide what I will be doing with them after they are stitched. One idea is to attach them to each other and make an accordion fold book, I've never done that which adds to the appeal.

2018 Daily stitching
 This will look very familiar, I'm using another piece of the fabric I printed and am doing #3 in the series.

It's fused to a piece of felt and ready to stitch.

After taking a bit of a break from daily stitching this month I'm eager to get back to it. I found I really missed having it to do in the morning to get me ready to work in the studio. In fact I've really been quite aimless this month, I haven't really focused on much of anything. I did get my try at English Paper Piecing appliqu├ęd onto purple silk and wrapped around a 10 inch square canvas.

I'll be linking up to "Off the Wall Friday" and "Slow Sunday Stitching"
