This year I am also taking part in a monthly stitch-a-long with my stitching sister Elaine (shutterbuglady) from Wisconsin. After a lucky dip draw we both have a list of months which we have to choose the chart that we are both going to stitch. We must stitch the chart using different colours threads or fabric so that it varies from the original design. I got to choose January so our first design is Let It Snow by Holly House Designs. The original chart is stitched with Krenik braid and filament, I am using Weeks Dye Works Sea Foam and Tropical Island by Stranded by the Sea. I'm afraid my picture isn't very clear because the fabric and the threads are so pale so it didn't photograph very well. This is my wip.Everyone has gone back to work and school today but we still have lots of snow on the ground so the roads and pavements are pretty scary. Tomorrow will be the first day that I need to attempt walking to school and I am not looking forward to it. The pavements are piled high with ice and snow as there is a shortage of salt, so no pavements have been gritted at all. I need to get me a sleigh..lol. Hugs!
