Can you believe it is already the last Friday in January and time to check in with our first Smalls post of the year? 2019 is already flying by!
Because I live in Arizona, USA, which is Mountain Time, and I know many of you are far to the east of me, I am putting up the post up on Thursday night so that you can start posting your Smalls when it is Friday in your time zone. I hope that seems good to everyone. I also hope the new Linky Tools link up thing works for you all. Please get in touch if you have problems.
Enough “housekeeping!” Well, if you’re anything like me, you were hustling this week to get something done to show. Earlier this week I bravely began cutting my linen in my first hardanger piece, Holly Berries which is a Beyond Cross Stitch Learning kit from The Victoria Sampler:
Here are the bars halfway done-the weaving was fun!
I am eager for advice on how to improve my cutting as it seems the little linen thread want to poke up between the threads of the kloster blocks. Any suggestions?
I also worked on my Very Merry Winter snowman by JBW Designs this week-it was supposed to be my contribution for the Ornies SAL in December. Better late than never and still a cute piece for January!This picture is VERY blue. The linen and border are blue but not quite so blue.
I’m going to make it into a little pillow. I’d like to get on the dough bowl wagon and have lots of little seasonal pillows. This will be my first one for winter.
Now it’s your turn! I can’t wait to see what you’ve been stitching this month!
