One of the things that I decided that I wanted to do this year was to get back into some of my "old" crafts--
and then I found a simple counted cross stitch group--
and joined that--
and here -- in part is January's block--
the original design has more outside work on it--
snowflakes for one thing and the month is stitched at the bottom--
but at this point I am leaving him as is--
want to see next months before I make a choice on how to finish him--
I think I just want to make him into a small pillow--and do them all that way--
and then fill a wood bowl or dish with them!!!!
time will tell--!!!
Here is a counted cross stitch that I did 3-4 years ago now--I think???
One of the things that I enjoy in counted cross stitch is doing the abc sampler's!!!
Have several around that I have done down through the years since 1989!!
I have some other things I want to do--
but at least this month--
in addition to all the quilting and stitching--
I did read one book--
and I watched one movie--
(remember I have No TV!!!!--but I do spend time every single day playing with Miss gracie--sometimes that is a whole "show" in itself!!!!)
Hope everyone had a great week end--some of us are going to have a very cold week ahead of us and maybe more snow--so don't put them shovels away just yet--or the long johns!!!!
PS--tomorrow is the last day of the month for those finishes--
me hopes to get two more done--yea?????
