A bit of January - Finished!

I finished this little design up tonight...

A Bit of January

Now I just need February! :)

I have decided that my next big project (like I don't have enough of those going already) will be Celtic Banner. I actually started this years ago. I sold it to someone and they were very happy to have it and finish it. I have kicked myself so much for letting go of that project. And lately I've really been contemplating it and admiring others that have been stitched. So I ordered the pattern (again) and 32 ct. Lambswool Jobelan to stitch it on. I'm hoping it will look nice on it - I'm now wondering if I should've gone with linen. I don't know?? I was possibly thinking of tea-dyeing it. Anyway, here are the DMC threads the pattern calls for...


Aren't they gorgeous?? I think Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum is a genius when it comes to color and color combinations. I can't wait to get started (again).

P.S. I don't normally post twice in one day, but the kids went bed really early tonight, so I've found myself with a lot of very unusual free time on my hands. I really should get to bed also because since they went to bed early that probably means they'll be waking up early!! :) Write later!


  1. Nicole,
    I too saw so many doing the Celtic banner and since I am of Irish decent, decided...this is a must do. I forget the fabric I am using, but I have all the threads, it is on scroll bars and I have just the first corner done...another and I seem to have alot of the same projects going right now...

  3. I love Celtic Banner and a friend recently gave me the pattern. But I'm still undecided what fabric to use...too many choices out there!

  4. Congrats on finishing January! It looks great.

  5. Cute January banner...and what a steal on the photo album you found! The photos of your threads for Celtic Banner are just gorgeous!

  6. Very cute finish! The colors for celtic banner are gorgeous. Have fun stitching it :-).
