I have somewhat amazed myself and already completed my first piece of stitching for the year. Even more surprising it was less than one week from start to finish, an absolute record for me. Don't get too excited as I doubt things will carry on like this.
LHN January Sampler
28 ct Cashel Linen 'Vintage' Country Mocha
Threads: Crescent Colour
Backing Fabric: Frosted Snowflakes
As one of my Christmas presents my parents have signed me up for the auto-shipment of the LHN and Crescent Colours Sampler Monthlies and this is the first one, January, which I have finished as a pinkeep. I have backed it with a fabric called Frosted Snowflakes, which you can see in the picture below. I also had my first go at making a bow as instructed by the Twisted Stitcher and I'm pleased with how it worked out.
I plan on keeping this one and all of the others for myself and hope to find a small easel to display them on, changing them as the month changes.
