I've started the year with two great finishes - I've been stitching my Jardin Privé Winter Tree for the Four Seasons SAL 2015. I stitched in as a UFO with Needlecraft Haven - every weekend our lovely member Julie and her helpful friend Mr Stick encourages us to work on our UFO projects. I'm so pleased to have finished this, my next UFO will be the Autumn Tree from the same series.

I collect my orts in my little pot in my needlebox and when it's full move them to my bon bon jar. I think this year I'll check how full it is before choosing my design.

It's Hardanger SAL and whilst I can do Hardanger and have designed a few pieces of my own I am self taught and have decided to approach this SAL as a beginner taking care to follow each step exactly. So much so I have ordered new needles in all required sizes so I can use the right one for the right thread - something I don't always do :-/
I hope you have all had a good start to 2016, wishing you all a great stitching year :-)
I noticed this morning that I had missed attaching the charm I had - too busy doing the gathering :-) I've managed to add it on :-)
