Mini Sampler - January

Quick project. This is small about the size of a 3x5 index card. Instant gratification. I plan (we know what happens to plans, don't we?) on doing one a month until I have the whole calendar year. Only 11 more to go and I've already started on February's. Make that 10 1/2 to go. I'm on a roll now!

Winter Fun (silk & 28 count linen kit) from Periwinkle Promises

Little bit of cross stitch, mostly specialty stitches - sew the back on, stuff it, add tassels and it becomes a mini pillow. I think I'll had a little floss hanger to the back & hang it. Of course, it doesn't have to be made into a pillow - it could be the front of a needlebook or it could even be framed.

  5. A beautiful piece of needlework. I love Barbara Rakosnik myself. She is a great designer and a wonderful teacher. If you ever have the opportunity to take a class from her in person I would suggest you take it.

  6. This mini sampler is lovely. You did a beautiful job!
