My first blog post of 2019 and so I´d like to wish all fellow bloggers and visitors a very Happy New Year.
`Let the People Choose´ is a SAL hosted by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching and celebrated on the first Saturday of each month. I´m late in checking- in as I was away over the new year. The theme for this month is New Starts.
I joined a HAL - Hardanger-a-Long hosted by Mamen of Carpacar at the beginning of December called HAL Ateneo and managed to stitch the first blocks before Christmas and my short holiday get-away.
We returned home by train and I didn´t think that I would be able to get much stitching done but I was wrong. A lot of Kloster blocks were embroidered during the five hour journey, then I worked on the blanket stitch surround.
and the orange square stitch worked diagonally.
The design is worked on 32ct. Zweigart Belfast linen using DMC perlé threads #5, #8 and #12. I left my comfort zone colourwise and am using: off white, green and orange. Hopefully I will like the finished result.
I am now cutting and pulling the threads ready to do the next step.
I´m way behind with my blog visits and comments and hope to catch up this weekend and see what everyone is stitching.
Thank you for looking.
