I've decided to create an embroidered sampler inspired by Amy at Inspire Co. and 39 Squares. I haven't done anything like this since I was a kid, so I'm kind of excited to begin this little project. For 39 days, we will be creating a square each day using embroidery floss, buttons, and other embellishments. Pop on over to Amy's blogs to see her inspiring samplers. They're so sweet and cheery.
This is quite a commitment on my part-- I'm the queen of buying project materials and never following through and finishing. Although I'm doing this as a creative outlet, I'm also doing this as an exercise in self-discipline. It's just one, 1-inch square a day (and NOT micro-stitched, like Rosanna's beauties! This is a 1:1 project!). I can do this. I can do this... okay, wish me luck! Oh, and don't worry, I'll post my squares once a week so you can see how it's going!
