February OMG - Temperature Project finally begun!

Hi everyone, not all that much progress, but I feel like I FINALLY broke the seal and did a little stitching. This month's OMG was really just to get started on this project that was feeling so overwhelming. And, well, I started.

The black wool finally arrived, I finally started stitching the grid, and I chose 7 stitches to use on the different days of the week to add a little more variety to what is still only a 3-color project! I haven't even stitched a complete week yet -- far from my "if I get to the end of January I'll feel like a boss" statement from the beginning of the month. But all progress is progress, right?

I have some concerns that I can see the canvas through some of the stitching -- will this continue to bother me? Or will I just relax and trust that it will look okay in the end? Who knows. I also have some concerns about the sheer amount of wool I'll be using and the inconvenience of getting more. But, hey, I have to do a lot more stitching before that will be the case.

The fact that I've done any stitching at all is largely due to the One Monthly Goal link-up over at Elm Street Quilts. Dozens of crafters of all types pledge to complete a goal at the beginning of the month, and then check in at the end with their progress. I assure you that the others do more than I've done, so go check them out.

Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal - February Finish Link-up


  1. Great progress. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your project.

  2. What kind of wool are you using? And what colors do you anticipate needing? Daughter brought me a box of Persian wool I doubt I will use - maybe I could send some to you.

  3. Isn't it great, having these linkups to motivate ourselves with?

  4. What a great project and I’m glad you feel like you are getting somewhere with it. I’m sure the canvas will disappear amongst itself as more colours and stitches are added in.
