January 1, 2017. First stitches of the new year! I'm thrilled to be starting a new swatch and to have so many people joining in this year! One outcome from last year's project is that I was able to feel present in my daily life again. This has been extremely important the past 10 days because I have been traveling and spending time with family and friends who live across country from me. I actually can't remember the last time I have spent so much time with my loved ones, it's been amazing. With that being said, I am so floored by all the positive feedback I have received and that so many people have started their own projects, it's beyond what I could have ever imagined. I want to apologize that I have not been engaging as much on IG. I have many high hopes for 2017 and this project, which I will be sharing in the coming days. I hope everyone enjoyed their New Year's Eve and has a happy and healthy new year! Thank you all for being a part of this project and I'm excited to be stitching with you all in 2017! #1yearofstitches #wip #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #contemporaryembroidery #bordado #broderie #embroideryinstaguild #stitches #backstitch #white #2017 #firststitch #newyearsday #sunday #sundaynight #thread #fiberart #sewing #textiles #textileart #art #needleandthread

  • jessicarosestitcheryI am so glad I found out about this! You had an amazing idea that has clearly caught on, and although I am a few days late I may make one for myself as well! Stitching is a way I help myself with my anxiety, and this seems like a great project to begin. Thank you so much for the inspiration! ♡♡
