SAL January 2017

Well the first month of 2017 disappeared in a wink but the one good thing was the summer weather wasn't too hot. January is a lovely time to slow down and a time I always enjoy and especially being out of routine - it doesn't take long though to get back into the swing of things again and the diary entries tell me that a busy time is ahead.   I have enjoyed some stitching over the last weeks and especially working on a couple of  rather old WIP. My first SAL finish was a Blackbird design 'Bird in Hand' which I have made up (at long last) into a small needlebook to carry with me as it will be big enough for a few threads and a pair of scissors.   I felt the design was a little large for a pincushion plus I really do not need to add another one to my collection.

This is a lovely design and useful pretty finish. Always handy to have a needlebook in ones bag.
