Song of the Weather SAL - January

When I saw a thread about this SAL on I had to sign up, it's hosted by Mabel Figworthy and it's a hardanger SAL! Mabel's hardanger designs are the nicest I've seen, really fresh and modern and she always uses the most gorgeous colours :)

I've only ever had one hardanger experience before signing up for this, as some of you may remember it was a bit of a disaster so I was a bit nervous about starting it but being able to choose my own materials and having clear directions to follow has made such a difference, I've really enjoyed stitching January's chart, so much so that I did it in one evening which is very unlike me!

I'm stitching on 22 count hardanger using DMC white for the neutral colour and Weeks Dye Works Garnet and Scuppernong.

I haven't decided how I'll finish the design yet, I originally intended to stitch all the squares on the same fabric for framing but I'm thinking I might like to make them into a little book, we'll see what happens :)
