another start
off to a workshop

another January


Here is another January-inspired stitch.  I love stitching things for the months, especially these small pieces.  They seem to stitch up quickly.  This is a Rouge du Rhin kit.  Many of the embroidery stitches I hadn't attempted before, so it has been a good learning experience.  I will say that this kit is very unforgiving if you make a mistake!  I used the wrong color green on the leaves, and there was no extra to take it out and re-stitch it.  I think that it will be okay, and that I will have enough to finish it!  I will have to pay extra careful attention on the next one.  Any finishing ideas?  I was thinking of maybe a little ornament....

How lovely! I'm always particular fond of hearts and flowers. The idea of turning it into a lavender sachet is inspired - or perhaps filled with rose petals, another of my favorites.
