January and February done and dusted!!!

Hello everyone! Happy New Year (belated....)  I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and got lots of stitching done!  I see from all the posts that everyone has chosen some great music designs for January, and there are even some snow designs popping up already!

Well.... would you believe it.... I have manged to finish both my January and February ornies already! So I am feeling mighty proud of myself right now.... :o)

Here we go...

January's theme was Music - I loved looking for something to stitch for this one.  I have so many little Christmas designs that could fit into the theme that I was really stuck for choice!  I did finally decide to stitch a "Christmas Carol" design that feature in the Cross Stitch Card Shop magazine.

"Christmas Chorus" - designer Durene Jones
February's choice was really simple.... I was stitching the Blue Ribbon Designs "Snow Mates" for another SAL so they just had to be my February choice for "Snow"!

"Snow Mates" - designer Blue Ribbon Designs
This design was featured in the Just Cross Stitch 2015 Christmas Ornaments magazine.  I stitched it using mainly DMC but did have a Weeks Dye Works "Hunter" in my stash so was able to do the border in the called for colour.

So that's me up to date for a change!

Til next time.... Happy Christmas Stitching
Hugs xx
