31 days 2012 {a month of stitches}

31days2012button

Welcome to thirty-one days of embroidery! I’m linking up with the nester and who knows how many others. We are all crazy enough to take the challenge to post once a day for the next month on a whole variety of topics.
Last year I was WAY too ambitious and posted all sorts of crazy projects and honestly about lost my mind by the end of it. This year, I’m sticking with something I know and need to improve upon. I’ve always wanted to do a hoop of random stitches and this is my month!

My goal is to post a new stitch every day with a video or photo of how to do the stitch yourself. I’ll also try to post photos of finished projects that have that stitch as an example. So, ever wanted to learn how to embroider? Grab a hoop, some floss, a needle and let’s get started…tomorrow!

  1. Looking forward to taking a peek at your stitches! Not that I have time to stitch right now, but I’ll be following along.

  2. Oh how I love your button! Darling! And this looks like a great resource for my occasional stitching!
