A January ‘smalls’ finish… or two :)

OK, I started both of these more than 12 months ago but am pleased to say they are now done.

Second up this lovely little design I have seen stitched and finished in various ways all over blogland… now I have my own (can't believe it took me so long to make into a little pillow, shame on me...)

A Challenge!

I am setting myself a challenge this year, to stitch either a biscornu or an ornament (any season) from the magazine.  Would love some company, if anyone cares to join me!

For the third time I am stitching Sakura by Alchemy Stitchcraft in January - Christine, the designer, is a member of this blog and an online friend.  And I am keeping this one!
Hi there and Happy New Year to all! I was able to take a pic of another project that I did out of TGOS...I don't recall the issue but as soon as I look it up I will add.


I substituted with a yellowish cream linen and DMC threads. Very much fun to stitch!
