The 100 Day Project starts today! I’m so excited! I like doing long term projects like this and I’m raring to go. Especially because this time others have joined “my” project and will be making textile pages using various prompts I am making for us. I’m looking forward to seeing how the others interpret the prompts.
You can join too if you fancy a bit of daily-ish hand stitching over the next 100 days. It’s going to be so much fun! :-)
Our first prompt is this simple slow stitching page. I love slow stitching. It doesn’t have a purpose other than to be pretty and be a place where you can stitch and it doesn’t have to look like anything specific and there is no right or wrong way to do it.
As soon as I’m done typing this, I’m going to join Blake on the sofa and add some more stitching on this. Just simple running stitch. Gently rocking the needle and thread through the fabric… :-)
Ooh! I stayed up way late to see if I might have the first prompt in my inbox and huzzah! It was so! I have to admit though, while I’m not new to stitching, I am new to a project like this. I have been wanting to learn how to make a stitched book like this, so it was like kismet when I saw the project!!!
I have a question: will you have instructions on how to create the pages? I did a little surfing of slow stitching and saw a page that had been basted to batting. Is that a good method that I should figure out how to do? Also, what is a folio? Like a pocket???
It’s like magic! :-)
There will be a tutorial for how to put the pages/book together.
A folio is a fancy book making term! It is a sheet of paper that is folded once to form two leaves (and so four pages) of a book. I’ll explain it all when we get to the end of the 100 days. :-)
