I'm stitchingalong...

...with Amy of Inspireco in her 39 Squares project.
I wanted to be sure I could actually find time to do this project before I committed to it. I've always enjoyed embroidery and this sounded like so much fun!
The goal is to make one a day and the group is on day 10.
So, here's my plan.
I am making 35 inchies to represent our 35th wedding anniversary coming up in October.
Some squares will be symbolic of our life together and others will simply highlight a particular embroidery stitch or trinket.
I decided on a neutral pallet and hope to frame it to an 8x10-inch size.
'L', you know who that represents ;)
Gotta go.... I have some catching up to do.

I've been following Amy's blog and love her 39 squares project. How fun that you've joined in. Two other gals with blogs I follow are also participating.
I'm going to enjoy seeing all these squares come to life right before my eyes!

Oh I love this. Wish I had time to stitch along, but I know I don't, so will just have to enjoy watching your embroidery grow. Your work is excellent.

Shucks. I wish I had known about this earlier. I would love to do that with a bunch of folks.

I can't wait so see what you continue to do. I saw Maija's a few days ago and was in love with her's as well.
