My One Strand A Day (OSAD) project is moving along nicely. The hardest part is probably to stop stitching after I have added my one strand. Honestly, this design is so much fun, that I could just let everything else go and only concentrate on my 3 winter squares.
Here’s what the sampler looks like now. Isn’t it amazing what you can accomplish with one strand a day?
I haven’t decided yet whether I’ll take this project with me to the US. I know I could make significant progress (I would definitely be stitching more than one strand per day), but it kinda ruins the fun of doing just one strand. On the other hand, a finish is a finish and I’d love to have this one done by the end of February. Besides, it makes the perfect thing to stitch on the plane. No changing of colors, just counting.
Marjorie Massey has at least 2 more designs that are done this way (stitching the negative), there is one with Nature as a theme (think lots of animals and flowers, really cute) and one themed around the Sea (also very tempting to stitch). I might continue my OSAD project with one of these.
