Winter Challenge

At Needlecraft Haven we're combining our Monthly Challenge and Four Seasons SAL. This year we have a Seasonal Challenge. Each season Christine, one of our members, reveals a Christmas design and a general design, each design is a free online chart that Christine has found.

We can stitch either or both designs and finish them however we like sending Christine a photo which she puts into an online album. Our photos are revealed in a Gallery at the start of the final month for that season. We can see everyone's work and it gives those still to finish some ideas.

I have finished the Christmas design for our Winter Challenge - a cute snowman from La Comtesse & Le Ponit de Croix  I chose a rustic finish, not something I have done before for a Christmas ornament but I'm very pleased how it turned out.

I have completed the first week of February for my two Temperature Quilt SALs.  The photos look a little drab but I think it's because I took the photos in electric light. I'll try to remember to take them in daylight next time.

I'll have some more stitching, and baking, to share soon as it's our daughter's birthday on the 17th. We're off to Cardiff tomorrow to spend a few days with her ... it's hard to believe she will be 25 😍
