I knew I wanted to make a fabric journal for TAST with one page for each week. I have lots of even-weave linen I picked up at a thrift shop and I have 5 boxes and a basket of various embroidery thread. Not to mention about 20 containers of beads. So I should not need to buy anything.
I've been playing around with design ideas in my head. I wanted to make the journal artsy and colorful but not be locked in to one style. I wanted it to be meaningful to me as well as being something I could refer to in the future. I don't like to plan things to death but I figured I had better have some sort of idea where I was heading so I didn't spend the 1st half of each week thinking about the design before I got to stitching.
I have decided that each Tuesday will have its own theme. I'm looking at events, birthdays, saint's days, etc. in history and am choosing one for each week that is meaningful to me in some way. How each design will be worked out will probably be different each week depending on what stitch we are given.
It sounds a bit nebulous but at least it's a direction!
