January Stitchery

Finally, I'm at my computer (not the iPad) and the photos have been downloaded and I can post a picture of the Anni Downes' stitchery we are completing for the January project in the SAL.

I haven't finished it yet - as in make it into something, but the stitching is done.  I was intending to use the traditional Christmas Colours of Red and/or green, but I stumbled across this one in a LQS and I liked it so much, I instantly decided to use it in this stitchery.  Surprisingly (well, maybe not!) I have some Christmas fabric in just these colours.

This is it:

It's a Cosmo thread - variegated pink and blue.  I really like it - but I'm still tempted to make another with the red thread.  A traditional Christmas girl at heart.

I've gone with the BoM option with Nature's Journey - very excited to get my first package - which should be very soon.  Love Anni's fabrics and the choices she makes for her quilts.
