February - Carols/Music

Party of pattern free Marijke


Gwen: February 2017 Ornament

My ornament this month is from On The Twelfth Day of Christmas from Sue Hillis Designs. Now you may be wondering why I stitched the drum. The chart is stitched as a banner with the countdown starting at end of the song, so the first chart is the drum. I just started there and hope to get to the partridge by November. I will be finishing mine as individual ornaments.

all done and dusted, too (and Day Three is close to being finished as well - so maybe an early finish post for March for moi!).

How the whole piece is looking so far... (thanks to Stitchmaynia's Twelve Days of Stitchmas over Christmas/New Year)

Faith's February Ornament

I FINALLY finished stitching Day 2 from the Margaret Sherry's Twelve Days of Christmas series. I had a few visits from the frog on this one but thankfully he tired of me and moved on.

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching!

Serendipitous Jo's February Turtles Doves

I have completed the second block of Joan Elliott's 12 Days of Christmas:


It didn't take long at all because so much of it had been done for the 12 Days SAL at Christmas.  Here is the whole piece so far:


You can see where I am diligently stitching the gold metallic on either side of the red border.  I had used up one of the two skeins provided before I was even half-way done and it was obvious I would need more.  I emailed Design Works on Friday 3rd February with a photo of my progress and explaining the need for another skein of metallic thread.  They replied within the hour promising to send one.  Which arrived on Tuesday 7th February.  At first I assumed they had asked a UK stockist to send it, but no, the skein came all the way from the US in just four days, two of which were a weekend!   That's good service for you.

Two Turtledoves


And February's Dragonlet is done. This is definitely a record for me.


Terrible picture of the fabric, but I do love the turtle doves.
