The Paintbox Collection ‘A year in stitches’ is a ‘Mood Art’ craft project. It includes 12 patterns, one for each month of the year, each month has its own pattern, with one line of stitching for every day of the month. Each pattern is designed to be stitched one line at a time every day for a month. Some are a simple line, others are a little more complex, like little puzzles to work out the best way to stitch them.
Each pattern comes with a pattern with a colour scheme of 6 colours ready to be stitched as a simple daily mindful activity with results similar to the image on the left and below.
But each pattern also includes a 'moodtracker' colouring sheet for you to record your mood across the month. Use this colouring sheet to record your daily moods, then use this as a pattern for your personalised and unique moodtracker stitching project.
The images show the 'August' design when stitched by following the pattern, and the moodtracker design sheet you can use to record your own mood colours during the month.
There is also a colour design sheet you can use to design your own colour scheme if you prefer.
You can stitch the designs at any time, just remember to record your moods on the mood tracker design sheets.
