Just realised I never posted my finished ‘year-long’ project for last year. Each square represents a week, and I used a combination of techniques. Goldwork, Hardanger, blackwork, stumpwork, needlelace, drawn thread work, beadwork, embellished photography, Bargello, Assisi work, cross-stitch…. etc etc. Mostly my designs, with a couple of motifs from cross-stitch books.
