Craft Every Day 2020 Week 1

So we are currently at the start of Day 6 and I'm back at work but I can safely say for the first 5 days of the year I have managed to craft EVERY day!

Now these are slightly out of order as I worked on Baroque by inkcircles on day 1 and you can see the photo I took of it on my instagram but I have a nicer photo I took a few days later when I worked on it again so I've included that here :D 

On Day 2 I did a few things but one of the main crafts was designing. I made a big go at this piece. and it's almost done. Needs to be tweaked and honestly I was second guessing everything so I had to walk away for a while.


On day 3 I started a stitch a long by Peppermint purple! This will be going all year and you can join at any point. But it will be maybe 1 hour of blackwork each week. I'm so excited by this one. I decided to use the African Violet on the left and DMC 535 which is a grey for the outlines. I will see if I can get ahold of more African Violet otherwise I may put some plain colours in there that match in with it as I don't think I have enough to get through the whole piece. But I am just using stash I have at home and I'm excited to use all my pretty colours.




On Day 4 I kept working on Baroque. This is the photo I took midway through the day, but I have done a bit more but of course have no photo of it yet. But I'm getting closer and closer to finishing this square! This project is my priority this year because it has been too long since I started it!


And Day 5 we went to GOMA and southbank for the day. Ending with dinner near the lagoon so the kids could go swimming. While they were enjoying that we enjoyed talking and I stitched some more on my barn owl. This piece should be finished by now but I kept putting it down to deal with other projects. But it is my current portable MUST stitch.


Is anyone else joining me in trying to stitch/craft everyday? You can join in at any point of the year. If you use the tag #crafteveryday2020 on instagram I am monitoring it and I'll come and cheer you on!

Happy Stitching,
Caitlin
