To celebrate my birthday this month, I'm going to do a grid-style sampler with a square for each of my 39 years. I will do a square per day starting March 1 until April 8 and will post the squares here.
Want to play along? If you'd like to stitch a square per day for the next 39 days (or however many days you'd like) post a comment here with your blog address. Start by drawing a grid on your fabric (mine is 8 inches by 5 inches with 40 one inch squares (I'll leave the last one blank)). Then starting on Monday March 1, stitch and post the first square. Work sequentially across the grid.
If you're really busy, maybe just sew a button that day. Take your sampler with you and maybe you'll find an extra hour in a waiting room or something and then you can do an elaborate square. Or maybe you can make it your winding-down project to keep next to your bed. However you want to do it, complete each square and post it on that day.
(You may have to work on the first one the night before so you'll have time to work on it and still post it on March 1. I don't think that's cheating, do you?)
Be sure to comment here with your blog address if you want to stitchalong I will add you to the blogroll on the side. I think I'll also do a slideshow of squares we all do to inspire us. Won't that be fun?
