I have to confess I didn't stitch this today, it's one 9 year old me prepared earlier. 28ct fabric with a single heavyweight thread rather than floss - I made my own rules even then, ha!

I've decided to join in with the 100 day project. Devised by the folks over at The Great Discontent it's pretty much what it implies, a project spanning 100 days. They explain it as such:
What Is the 100-Day Project?
How does it work?
It explains in more detail in the link up there^
but here's the short version.
You sign up to their newsletter & follow their Instagram accounts, these give you ideas, suggestions, ways to keep going as well as being able to see what they're doing in their own project(s).
You choose an action to carry out each day for 100 days, starting on April 6th (yeah, I'm arriving more-than-fashionably-late to this party but that's allowed.)
You post each day on Instagram using #the100dayproject as well as your own unique tag, so people can choose to see all of everyone's contributions or just yours.
You announce your project (like I'm doing now), then you just get stuck in, posting up your progress in picture form every day for people so see.
...that's what my unique hashtag will be for the project, so as you've probably figured out, my 100 days will be full of cross stitch.
As you can imagine you can't really do a whole major project each day so I'll be keeping them small for the most part & doing some projects that link together to form a bigger picture. I don't want to impose too many rules on myself & make this any harder than it already is...we all know my health isn't entirely predictable & a tiny cross stitch is, I'm hoping, still possible most days. The good news as well is, none of these charts will be for sale in the shop so copyright isn't a worry & I can do a few cheeky fan-art pieces if the urge takes me.
So that's it really, now you know.
Oh, one last thing to tell!
Mailing list subscribers will get access to the pdfs of any patterns I make, so if they want to recreate them at home they can do, for free!
So, if you've still not signed up then scroll down to the bottom of this page, or any page on MissRed.co.uk & get your name on that list!
Gotta dash, cross stitching to do!
