New Year Calls For A Big New Project – Time To Attempt A Year In Stitches

I came across a year of stitches on instagram by Hannah Claire Somerville ( and decided I would give it a go this year. I have been wanting to work more on my embroidery over the last few years and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to practise and attempt some new stitches.

I am using a slightly smaller hoop as I didn’t want to be too ambitious and the thought of a bigger hoop made me slightly nervous! I will try and complete a piece of sewing each day without any pre-planning of an end result so it will be quite random – I’m really looking forward to how it turns out.

I have been wanting to attempt some of the stitches out of this book for quite a while now – it was my Grans who was unbelievable at sewing, it would be brilliant if I could manage to accomplish some of the stitches out from it.

I’m really happy with how it’s turning out so far, fingers crossed I don’t encounter too many problems!
