Happy New Year

I wish everyone a Happy New Year and the best of everything in the coming year.
I have had a pretty busy holiday week. I haven't done much stitching because I have been working nights.

I have joined in on a SAL for Beatrix Potter Sampler. I wasn't exactly sure what fabric and flosses I wanted to use. My first choice was 28 count Lavender Lugana that I have in my stash. I went to LSN searching for some silks that would okay. I selected a darker purple and stitched a small sample. I really didn't like the way it turned out. I wanted to pick colors that I wouldn't get tired off and I wanted something that really stood out. I decided on 28 count antique ivory Jobelan and I DMC 352 for the floss.


This SAL starts on January 1 and lasts all year so I am hopeful to finish it. I will post monthly updates
of my progress.



I have also joined several swaps so January will be a fun and busy month.
