Although it's a new year I'm starting with a quick look back to a few gifts I could not share in GG December. Firstly the beautiful Halloween chart I won in Ariadne's giveaway, not only did she send the chart but some lovely stitching items too - thank you so much Ariadne.

Haven Awards are automatically given as member reaches post totals and we have just had our first Diamond Havener. Julie has posted over 10,000 times since the forum began in 2010 - I could not let this fantastic achievement and dedication to Needlecraft Haven go unrecognised so I stitched Julie a little ornament to celebrate, well done Julie.

I've decided to record the temperature each day of where I actually am not my home town so it will have big colour variants when we're on holiday and it's cold at home. Each day I will record the highest temperature and following Hetti's chart will stitch that day's design in the corresponding colour. You can download Hetti's chart from her blog post here.
I've sorted my fabric and once complete it will be a home gift as I'll be making it into a small table mat. I'm stitching it on DMC Charles Craft Monaco Lugana 28ct in white which was gifted to me by Brenda many years ago. My colour code (Celcius) will be:
Below zero to 4 degrees - DMC 827
5 to 9 degrees - DMC 931
10 to 14 degrees - DMC 502
15 to 19 degrees - DMC 972
20 to 24 degrees - DMC 740
25 to 29 degrees - DMC 350
Above 30 dgrees - DMC 326

I'm going to start this as a SAL on Needlecraft Haven, many of our members have blogs so you might see a few more temperature projects, happy stitching everyone x x
