I’ve been working on a few different 365 projects. I had never done one before so I guess I’m making up for lost time.
This is mainly on instagram and I blogged about it here. As someone that deals with depresson I’m curious about the patterns of it. January was a bit rough, but it’s also winter in Chicago so really everyone is depressed right now.
Every few days I add my progress on Instagram.
Doing only one stitch doesn’t bother me. It’s changing the floss color that bothers me.
This I have only missed once. Before cross stitch there was crochet, before crochet, embroidery, before embroidery there was journaling. It’s very good for me.
I started the cranes as a way to bring a bit of luck and color into our home. The legend says that the person that makes 1,000 cranes in one year is grated a wish by a crane. I always wish on stars, eyelashes, (especially baby ones, I’m convinced those have extra special innocent wishing power) and 11:11. I started on 1/18 and I need 3 a day. I did 10 one night and the next day I won a giveaway on Instagram. (Have I told you how much I love Instagram?) That was proof enough for me.
In those days that you see a gray stitch above I likely didn’t do any cranes. As of today I have 29.
4. Wreck this journal.
I want to do exercises to be more creative. That seems to always mean drawing. I don’t draw as much as I’d like to, I never took an art class in my life, although I do consider myself an artist. Is that weird? I’m intimidated by this project, which is why I got the book, but I can’t just pick it up and do it. :shrug:
Do you have any 365 projects or resolutions?
How are they going?
