Project #366daysofstitches – 2020

In 2019, I made a decision to paint a 3×3 painting per day. You can find that post here.

For 2020, I am doing 366 days of stitches. The bonus this year is that it’s a Leap Year — so an extra day of stitching. My plan is to try a different stitch each month because practice makes perfect!

I started with a 14″ hoop, divided into 12 pie pieces. After January, I decided to take it down to a 10″ hoop. That’s keeping it tighter and just looks better.

  • January – French knots (464 of them!)
  • February – Satin Stitch hearts (29 hearts for a total of 298 Satin Stitches)
  • March – Leaves
  • April – Covid-19
  • May – Still Covid-19 and then #BlackLivesMatter
  • June – hahahaha the year really gets going
  • July – hahahah Cancer and Covid and junk
  • August – hahahahah heart attack and cancer and Covid and omg make this year end
  • September – Covid still omg, RBG died, my friend Kym died, 200k Covid deaths
  • October – Vacation, 220k Covid deaths
  • November – Thanksgiving, Election Day, 250k Covid deaths
  • December – Christmas, 350k Covid deaths, a 14 layer chocolate cake!
