Here are some details about my project:

Style Whimsical
Thread Head on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? I used about 1 metre (~1yd) of cotton to make the stitch notebook, plus all kinds of colours of 50Wt thread for the 143 stitches on my sewing machine. I have a "Husqvarna Sapphire 870 Quilt" sewing machine. I did a small sample of Stupendous Stitching for the cover just for fun.

What are you most proud of? The beautiful cover.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Having a book like this with all the stitches in your sewing machine is so handy for more than the class. I have had my machine for a couple of years and never even tried out most of the stitches - it was lovely to see how some of the designs stitched up, and how they changed with adjustments to the length and width.

Good idea - use stupendious stitching as the cover for your stitch bible. Genius !!
