It has been suggested by my lovely instagram followers (lilipoposketches is my instagram name) that a stitch along might be a nice idea. I can't decide if it is two words or one so I have used both!
Anyhow I thought that it would indeed be a nice idea and that it might make a lovely bit of a stitchy thing to do in the autumn (at least autumn here in the UK)
I wanted to do something a little wintery and I am a fanatical list maker (it doesn't actually make me any more organized it just makes me feel as though I am). I have bullet journals for work and home/family, two filofaxes, a sketch journal, a journal journal... As I said 'fanatical'.
So I was thinking along the lines of 'this year I am absolutely going to be ready for christmas (ssssshhhhhh) way before it actually arrives... I need a special little book of christmas lists' (little so that I can hide it away and pretend I am not already thinking about christmas).
And I had a cute little sketch of a scandi style girl with all her christmas lists on bits of scrap paper.
So I've been messing around stitching her
and this is my plan
in mid September I will pop the link to the pattern for the girl here on my blog
I am going to stitch her up as a notebook cover to cover the really small pretty moleskine cahier books (they come in packs of three).
I will photograph my progress on here and set up a flickr group for anyone joining in.
You can either make her up the same way I do (I will pop a notebook tutorial on here) or do something else entirely with her, it's up to you :)
I hope this mention of christmas isn't too soon but I know that us crafters have to start thinking a little earlier than the shoppers!
Now I'm taking the week off for my mum coming down for a holiday
See you in a week
