Goal review - January

Stitch JCS facebook group ornie - DONE!


Stitch 2 days of istitch 2015 Advent SAL - DONE!


Stitch Mabel Figworthy 'Round in Circles' January design - DONE!


Use random generator each Sunday
17th - 47: Rosa - frogged the kloster blocks on 2 sides, then restitched and added star stitches. After that, I moved on to the trellis stitch with it being couched at every bisecting/intersecting point.  That was a lot of couching! Then...the bullion know roses! Oh my word! They are fabulous once done, I love the look!


24th - 67: Summer in Susex - not a lot of stitching time this week so very little progress. That's a shame really as in reality it is not very far off being finished.



This week's design is number 39, which are the Lizzie Kate Flip-Its.

Great Success on your stitching. I have just joined the Round in Circles Sal and am ready to begin January. I am so very nervous - but I think her instructions are wonderful. And am giving it my best try. Never used perle cotton 5 or 8 so this is a Totally New Start for 2016. Thank you for sharing your beautiful finishes

Everything is beautiful. I love bullion knots. I have Summer in Sussex in my stash. I stitched the gingerbread houses and thought these were done the same way. I like that they are stitched in one piece.

Great work on your goals! I love the look of th cottage, I'm guessing it's a 3D design? Looking forward to seeing that made up.

I finally finished my Poinsettia Christmas from AHD and attached the clay poinsettia she sent us! Remember that?

Wow, that's some month you've just had! I love the bullion knots, they look so pretty. But I'll stick with my trusty crosses for now!
By the way, hop over to my blog and you may see something familiar... I knew I would stitch it eventually!
