January finish and some fabric!

Here is my Xmas Wishes finished...I have made it into a hanging ornament, apologies that I haven't photographed the back to show the pretty fabric, but believe me it is there! Very happy to have one project finished. I do love stitchery.
I've also been shopping (of course) and here are the fabrics I have so far for Natures Journey. Am looking forward to this one, with the small blocks it looks like it will be very achievable.
Was having some problems with my blog, just found Chookyblues fantastic tips and tutorials over on her blog. So now I have the SAL button! Thanks Chooky!
Great to be joining in with you all.
