Happy 2016 to you all.
I hope that it is a fabulous year.

Whilst I have been waiting for the treasures, I pulled out Mabel Figworthy's Song of the Weather. I had stitch the kloster blocks for April but that was about it. Today, I have finished off the block. I had to learn how to do bullion knots, Portuguese ladder stitch and Greek crosses to do it. My Portuguese ladder stitches aren't brilliant and I keep thinking about ripping them out and doing them again. I suspect by the time I reach December, I will have done so!

I really liked the Greek crosses once I understood what on earth it was I had to do with them. I am sure that mine will improve with practice but I am happy with them for this 'learner's piece'.
I have signed up for the 2016 SAL which is called Round in Circles. I am thinking that I will do it with the same threads and then both of them could hang in the hall next to each other. The first design was released today and is a nice easy one to start off with.
