100 Days of Joyful Stitching

As an avid lover of textiles and crafty creator of handmade projects, I decided to focus on creating embroidery art for 2017's 100 Day Project. I also decided to give myself some flexibility by not necessarily working on my pieces everyday, but still making them a priority in my life. This is the nature of a true passion project.

I started learning embroidery three years ago, timidly stitching according to patterns I bought locally. I continued my projects while living in Chile in 2015, but really committed to learning to create my own art in the summer of 2016. I took two workshops with talented fiber arts and discovered that I could use my own imagine to create landscapes inspired by my love of flowers and nature. We'll see where this project takes me!

(In 2016, I shared a memory from my time living and traveling in South America every day. Check it out here.)
