SAL Update 1.22.2023 | A Year Inspired

Hoping for mini happy dances year round! I’m happy to have completed the first wedge for the January release of A year Inspired by William Morris, designed by Stitchdoodles Designs.

The first wedge was inspired by Strawberry Thief, which is definitely one of my favorite William Morris designs. I’ve had the pleasure of working with this fabric reproduction for one of my Etsy customers and it was stunning! The only change I made to this design was backstitching the flowers in pink vs the blue that is used in the veining and stems. A little hard to see, but the leaves are also outlined in the blue thread.

Excited to start on the February wedge soon!

We post an update on our own project every three weeks and encourage each other to make more progress and stay motivated. I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the SAL group has progressed with their projects this time around. Read along with me by clicking the blog links below:

SAL Update 1.1.2023 | A Year Inspired

Happy 2023 Everyone! I hope you all had a a wonderful New Years Eve, whether you were out celebrating with friends and family or if you stayed cozy at home stitching. I was definitely part of the latter!

For my 2023 SAL, I’ve decided to switch things up a little with a new start. My new start is a year long stitch along designed by Stitchdoodles, A year Inspired by William Morris. If you know William Morris, than you are familiar with his beautiful textile designs and I’m so excited to reproduce them with thread.

The first month’s stitch guide was just released a couple of hours ago, so I’m off to get started!

A perfect project for my William Morris project bag! I’ll be sure to continue making progress on my scarlet quince full coverage and share some progress updates from time to time. Many thanks for all your encouragement in 2022!

SAL Update 4.24.22 | Nature Diary

Oops! No progress to report on my full coverage project. I definitely wanted to work on it, but these last three weeks have been especially busy with custom orders and preparing for an upcoming trip. In fact, I think the only stitching I’ve gotten in lately was a new start at the dealership when I was waiting on my oil change and car inspection… So with that, I want to leave you with some cute progress on my Nature Diary Series (aka for the Junk Journal) I think the last time I stitched on this was the beginning of the month:
