My daily art project for this year is hand stitching. I work on four-inch squares of Kona cotton (because I have boxes and boxes and boxes of the stuff in many different colors) and the rule is to do some kind of stitching. So far I've always used embroidery floss, but that wasn't specified in my rules so perhaps I'll experiment with other threads as the year goes on. Or not.
Now that I'm halfway through the second month, I thought it might be time to let you know how things are going.
Some days I have made pictures relating to something I did, saw or learned that day. For instance, on January 1 we were cruising at Santarem, Brazil, several hundred miles up the Amazon. At Santarem (as at many other places along the Amazon) there's a phenomenon called meeting of the waters, where the blue Tapajós flows into the muddy brown Amazon. The two colors of water don't blend for several miles, so you can see a distinct line down the center of the river.
I'll write later on some of the non-pictorial squares I've made so far.
