I don't know about you, but the days just seem to be flying by, even although we are in strict lockdown! With all the days being mostly the same - no meet ups with friends, days out or other events to mark the passing of time, I'm having trouble remember what day it is, nevermind what the date is! So when I saw this - The Needlework Enthusiast's 2021 Book of Days by Needlework Press last year, I thought that it would be just the thing for me to keep track of the days and what stitching I've been doing.
It is a beautiful book. Each month is spread across two pages and there's lots of room for filling in what's been accomplished each day. I decided that I would include my crochet and knitting along with my cross stitch in the book.
I've decorated January with some pretty washi tape, stickers and stamps - got this idea from fellow stitchers on Instagram and Facebook. Just makes it look pretty. For each month there are also some lovely old drawings and some sayings from old needlework samplers - so inspiring.
I got my book in December on a pre-order from Patchwork Rabbit. I checked recently and it seems to be out of stock there at the moment. (But go visit and check out their cross stitch patterns, threads and fabrics!)
So - hopefully, I'll be better organised (haaa - highly unlikely!) and able to see what projects I've need to work on. By the way - the background crochet is my progress on my new granny square blanket. Thank you all so much for the lovely comments and encouraging words on my last post. I don't have any friends who craft, so it is great to "talk" to others who enjoy crafting as much as I do. Thank you!
Stay well, stay safe and keep blogging, my friends!
