Yeah! Here it is my finished weekly journal! - and in video too!
I'm so proud of it and can't believe how many lovely pages I have created. I started this project as a way to make myself try and be creative with this new craft that I have created and try and work out what might be possible. I have certainly done that.
Although I have not always stuck to the 1 page a week rules (sometimes doing more or less depending on how busy I have been) between Feb and June I have been able to make 28 fully stitched pages plus 2 patchwork covers and 2 inside covers.
So this is volume 1... I have decided to carry on the project with the new focus on developing a fuller range of easy techniques that I can teach in my Stitchbook workshops. However to make it easier for me (or to make me less guilty when I can't complete one on time!) the 'weekly' part of volume 2 is going to refer to the time taken to produce 1 page, rather than the schedule. So it will still be filled with hand-stitched goodness but I will not have to prioritise its creation over my other projects!
Thanks for following along with this project and stick around for more Stitchbooks!
