Stitchgasm! September 2015 by Lynn Harrigan

Lynn Harrigan’s massive, year-long Calendar Project is in the final weeks.

Sept calendar
September, 2015. Hand embroidery by Lynn Harrigan.

I’ve been watching her daily art project unfold on Instagram and I’ve marveled at the variety and beauty of each square.

I will resume my Inspired to Stitch column in January, 2016, with a follow-up interview with Lynn, who I first profiled in March, 2015. I’m anxious to learn about the progression and challenges of this 365 day creative feat.

For now, I encourage you to follow Lynn on her Instagram feed or flickr to witness the last few weeks of this stunning project.
