The sketchbook was assembled by Anne in Melbourne, Australia. In addition to samples of her artwork it contains a variety of paper types so each recipient has her choice of foundation to work on.
Not all of us use pen, ink, or watercolors to create art however. My contribution is a pair of fabric sketches that I've embellished with embroidery, sequins, beads, and charms.

Mostly seed stitching, a few beads, a bit of couched yarn and a snippet of rick-rack. If you want to follow the journey of the sketchbook you can visit the sketchbook's blog, here.
The members of this Stitch Along also live all over the world. By this time they may all have their posts up, showing what they've been working on in the last three weeks but if not you can always check back later. It will be well worth your time. :- )
