Let's be jolly - Ursula Michael

Hello Peeps!
Time to share a cross stitch finish with you all.
This is a chart I was lucky to win in one of Katie's giveaway
Thank you again Katie!
If I recall correctly, I started it in December 2016 & was hoping for a Christmas finish.
Christmas has been & gone but I finally managed to finish it!!
Let's Be Jolly
Stitched on 32ct evenweave fabric from Sew It All, Cloud Winter Sky colour.
Worked 2 over 2, using the recommended DMC threads
Now it's time to pass on this lovely chart to another stitcher.
If you'd like to work on this snowman, please leave a comment on this post.
I am happy to post worldwide.
Should there be more than one person interested,
winner will be randomly picked and announced on the 1st February 2017.

January Yearbook - Lizzie Kate

Hello Peeps!
This year I will be working on a few small monthly projects.
You've already seen my January Fairy on my previous post and now
it's time for a bit of Lizzie Kate... of course!
January Yearbook
Stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew it All, linen colour
2 over 1 using recommended DMC threads.
My plan is to stitch all the months on the same piece of fabric
(3 across, 4 down) to eventually make a perpetual calendar.
The designs are relatively small and should be easy to keep up with every month.
Now working on a stitched envelope, for a small exchange
I've signed up with Albéna in France.
Finally, I also have a funny snowman to finish,
I'll be back soon, watch this space!
