I have my fabric chosen and cut for the journal pages, the 1st month of designs chosen and printed and I'm about to press and edge stitch the fabric.
Most of these pieces are actually aida cloth. I'm not using it for cross stitch anymore so I thought it would be good to use it up in this stitching journal. Most is a high count but if I need to I can stitch on a linen piece and applique it. Waste not, want not! The colors are white, creams and beiges, some yellow, one olive green, one dusty blue and one goldenrod.
This is my design for the 1st week. I love all things archaeological and it was on Jan. 3, 1924 that Howard Carter discovered the un-plundered tomb of King Tutankhamen. As soon as I know what our stitch is I can decide how to proceed.
