Sophie O’Neill is thestircrazycrafter on Tiktok and Instagram, and while she isn’t the first to create a daily embroidery journal she does explain it very well and is also pretty good at answering questions from viewers. Sophie says she stitches one icon a day for every day of the year. The icons represent something about that day.
Check out this fairly viral Tiktok Sophie made on where to start and what supplies you will need. She mentions in the comments that the fabric gets divided into 12 sections for every month of the year.
