January always seems to be a good month for me for finishing things. I think it must be the excitement of a new year and looking forward to all the things I want to make.
I've finished my Waxing Moon Designs January Sampler
Well, after looking at the photos I realised I missed filling a section of a snowflake in the top border! You can see what I mean from the first photo. It has now been filled in but I didn't want to mess with taking more photos. Good job I noticed, it's not the first time I thought I was all done then notice I wasn't ;-)
This one won't be fully finished until I decide if I want to frame in or make it into a hanging of some sort. I was going to see if I could find a frame in a charity shop but as they are all closed at the moment that's not an option, I don't want to go to the expense of having it professional framed as it will only be out for four weeks of the year, but as it is now I have almost 12 months to decide as January is at an end.
My next stitching finish is my PS January ornament as part of the 12in21ornamentstitchalong that I mentioned in my last post.
This too will be put away for finishing at a later date as I want to finish them all the same way
I noticed on Instagram a Year of Dishcloths Pattern Club from The Kitchen Sink Shop. If you sign up to their news letter you will be sent a dish cloth pattern at the beginning of each month, (but you can find the pattern on Ravelry even if you don't sign up, It's just published a little later in the month).
This is the Icicles Dishcloth
I knitted this out of some left over Hobby Craft cotton.
I just had to share some more snow pictures to end this blog post, we don't get huge amounts of it here in the UK so it's a real novelty when we do. The snow we had last week lasted until Tuesday and so I'm glad now that when Bonnie came on Monday we took a walk to the park. It was so pretty everywhere you looked and It was so lovely to see the kids having fun sledding, and just look at that blue sky!
