So far, this has been a joyful project. I guess I half expected that a daily art project might feel like a burden or obligation some days. But so far, not at all. Just the opposite—I look forward to stitching each day. Knowing this task lies before me makes me incredibly happy.
I also expected that I wouldn't want to document each day's work. I thought that might feel like drudgery and take some of the joy out of the project. But again, not so. So far, I've been posting a photo on Instagram every day. Documenting is starting to seem like an integral part of the project.
I'm also keeping a paper "calendar" for each month, making a few stitches each day under the date. Not sure what I'll end up doing with these—they could be framed and shown with the 12 finished pieces, or maybe bound together. We'll see.
