Mabel Figworthy's Round in Circles SAL - Round One - 01.01.16 - FINISH 1 for 2016

So on the 1st of January 2016 I have my first start and first finish for the year.  It also happens to be my first attempt at hardanger so all very appropriate!

It was also the first time I have done Kloster blocks and whipped backstitch!

All my supplies haven't come in that I had ordered for this stitch a long but I really wanted to start this today so instead of using different coloured threads as indicated in the chart I used one hand dyed thread from Jodyri Designs in Perle number 5 and Perle number 8 - the colour is called Alaskan Beauty.  It's stitched on Antique White 22 count Hardanger.


I have to say I was a little overwhelmed when I looked at all the instructions but I followed them step by step and breaking it down into each stitch made it an lot more manageable.  For my first attempt at Hardanger it only took me about 3 hours to stitch this which I am really pleased with.  So finish number 1 for 2016!  I'm looking forward to the next part coming out in February.

Keep stitching and smiling

I love the colour choice for yours. Will you be doing each one in a different colour? I have signed up for this too but have to wait for the fabric to arrive. I thought I had a piece suitable but apparently not!
