January by Lizzie Kate.
I am born in January and don't have
anything reflecting that. So, I have been
on a snowman kick and decided he would
be perfect. The fabric I did him on is
40 CT. Crystal Aerial Newcastle linen.
The linen was purchased from Picture
this Plus. The sparkle linen so pretty.
Its very hard to buy linen on line
because you can't see the true color
or dye. I Purchased several and I
was delighted with the sparkle linens.
The plain dyed ones I won't buy again
because you don't see the true color
until you receive it. I will definately
buy the sparkle linen again. Here is the
LINK to the online store.
Like Fashion, Accessories add to a piece.
Cording on the outside and Fiber on
the inside. The snow flake charms are
so cute. Displaying this piece can be hung
or just added to a basket or as i have
it displayed on my diningroom table. You
can hide the hanger.

This is my diningroom table. Its a different
display then my others in the house. I sit at
my table and enjoy these sweet stitches. I
live alone, no one to mess up the display or
get food on them. That is one benefit of
I bought some fabrics and i haven't done that
in a while. I have some great ideas for these
fabrics. I just adore fabric. I used to quilt, but
I decided years ago, My true love was
cross stitching. I still get the fabric fill for
finishing my pieces. So, the best of both
worlds in my case. Quilting is a very expensive
hobby. I made some beautiful quilts. My two
sisters both quilt and they do some amazing
pieces. I could get lost in a fabric store.
Is anyone else like that?
Speaking of accessories. I can't
wait for spring. We have a great
store in Tenn. Called Charming
Charlies. All kinds of accessories.
The wristlet was only 4.99. The
sparkle scarf is so pretty. Heading
to Disney on a trip i earned from
work in April. These pieces will
be coming with me.
We have a winter storm heading our
way tomorrow. First snow. Tenn.
will probably shut down. They just
can't handle the snow here. I hope
everyone is getting some stitching time
in. Cold here. 9 degrees right now.
Stay warm and safe everyone.
I can't wait for spring.
