I will be starting tomorrow.  Hope you'll be joining me. Not going to overthink or worry about shape just yet. My goal will be to add at least one stitch each day. Anxious to see what others do as well

I am still waiting for my aida to arrive. I will start when it gets here. It will be fun to see which of the gazillion ideas in my head get done!

I worked on a seam treatment for a while but didn't quite finish.  Will post pics when done.

I am still waiting for my aida. I got an email from the shop yesterday asking me to click if I had received it and wait a day and call if I haven't. While waiting, I am looking at Pinterest for more ideas. Found this cute sampler, but it would be planned out and not made up as I go along. It will just go into my "someday" bucket, but I thought I would share.

While I wait for my aida to come in the mail, I am starting with a little hoop. The bird fabric is for color inspiration. It may or may not be added to the piece. I got the lettering for the word "sing" from an old alphabet transfer book.

A few more doodles added.
I finally heard from the company I bought the aida from. Their supplier closed down for 2 weeks without notifying them. They hope to ship today.

I am glad someone is getting something done on this challenge.  I worked on but did not finish one seam treatment on the first or second, but have not picked it up since.  Been busy with other projects.

Although I'm not joining you on this challenge, I came across something that might be helpful to you.  While window shopping the Connecting Threads site, they have a 40% sale all books.  There is one called "The Embroidery Book" by Christen Brown.  Supposedly shows step-by-step instructions for 149 stitches.  The sale price is $16.77.
Find gratitude and humor in each day
