I've worked on a few projects in January, three of them new starts and one a project that I hadn't touched for a while.
On 31st December 2016 I started At the Met by Mirabilia. I have coveted this project for so long and last year I came into a little extra money and kitted it up. I stitched on this project every day for the first 22 days of January. I am stitching her on 32 count Permin Linen in Milk Chocolate 2 over 2 with all the charted threads. This is the first big project I have worked on with linen and I'm surprised to say I'm not hating it. I can't say I'll be converting totally to linen but I won't avoid it like I have in the past. So here's what it will look like.
This is what it looked like before I moved the frame.
And this is what it looks like now.
And here's where I got to so far.
My next new start was Hardcore Gamer from Charting Creations. I am stitching this on 25 count easy guide evenweave 2 over 1 tent stitch. The colour I am using at the moment is DMC Coloris 4507. Here's a picture of what it will look like.
And here's where I got to.
The final project I worked on was the Perpetual Calendar from Samsarah Designs. I looked back and the last time I worked on this was in 2013!! I am really enjoying working on it again. A couple of days a week I have to wait an hour for a lift home from work so I am taking this along and getting some extra time in on it. This is stitched on 14 count perforated paper.
Yesterday I was feeling the need to work on a different project but I couldn't decide which one so I used random number generator to pick a project and it landed on Mini Bookworm Fairy by Hannah Lynn. I am going to do at least 500 stitches on this project and then decide whether to carry on or switch.
I hope 2017 is treating you all well.
Keep stitching and smiling
