Jan. Monthly Sampler.....


I finished the January sampler last night. This is my 5th finish so far this year, and my 4th of the 15 new project challenge. I love how these are turning out. At first I wasn't sure about the white on this fabric, but it is looking good!
I am using Victorian Motto Sampler Flosses for them & I think they are looking just fine!!!!!
Today, I am going to work on a BRAND NEW start....yes, startitis is strong!!!!! I am going to work on Parson Brown. I coffee dyed my fabric 3 times over the past 2 days. I think I have it good now. I will 'paint' dye it after finished if I think it needs more.
Hubby was up all night....the flu bug has hit him & it has hit him hard. Praying I don't get it. I got the Lysol out & am washing all the bedding, etc....
Thank you to all who have left comments. I sure do appreciate them!!!!

This finish with the cardinals is so cute! And 4 of the 15 challenges done already-wow! I only have 1 finish and it's not from the challenge :)

I really like the January Sampler. You may have cost me - I just might have to get that series. And, switching them out of the same frame is a very clever idea!!

Hope you handy DH gets to feeling better soon and hope you don't get it!

Oh, Shari--so sorry to hear that the flu bug is visiting! I do hope it doesn't hit you, too--ugh!

Your January Sampler is darling--I might have to do this one, too :) And I really can't wait to see Parson Brown take shape--I've loved that ever since I first saw it.

the January sampler is gorgeous, I think the snow shows up fine
I wish they sold these as just charts instead of kits
