Combining Stitching and Scrapbooking?

Last night, I received the weekly newsletter from Nordic Needle and one of the topics was around creating a portfolio of stitching work. I have often considered creating a scrapbook of my stitching accomplishments, but I have yet to actually act on that thought. I think that I’m pretty good about keeping a photographic record, so really it wouldn’t take much to translate that into a physical medium. I would have to keep up with it, though, or it could become a monumental task.

My question to you, dear readers, is – have you ever created any sort of physical journal of your stitching? If you have, I’d love to hear about what you’ve done!

    You used to be able to–and probably still can–buy books that had a spot for a photo and spaces for all the details–pattern name, designer, date started, date completed, fabric and fibers used, why you were stitching it. I filled an entire book (though not all pieces are recorded visually) and bought a second book where things fell apart. I think the problem was that I took too long to finish projects and there it was in black and white!

    I guess I consider my blog to be my stitching journal. Once, I considered keeping a hard copy of my projects in a book, but it would only include the name, start and end times of the projects. I think my blog is a better record since it includes pictures too. Actual scrapbooking has never really interested me as a hobby. I just don’t have the time or money to add another hobby! lol

    I dont have a physical journal but I do keep one as such, in Word. I have spots for title of the piece, designer, date started, date finished, who I stitched it for, and project notes. When I finish a project a copy of the picture is added. I do plan on printing this periodically

    I do this in addition to blogging. My blog has been helpful if I forget about adding anything to the journal (such as start date)

    I have albums with photos of my projects and the details are on the back of each photo. I also have an online album, as well as my blog.
