A slight obsession with books

Crafts, cats and books

Song of the Weather – January


I loved stitching this. I did most of it on Saturday afternoon and was just waiting for one ball of Perle to arrive in order to finish it. That came this morning so today I did the last bit and my first piece of Hardanger is finished. I’m really pleased with it.

01JanuaryThe instructions couldn’t have been better. They were detailed, with clear diagrams. There was a photo of the finished piece plus a colour chart. There were diagrams of the individual stitches and instructions on how to do each stitch and the order in which to work the piece.

I’ve worked some of the stitches before on the Papillon SAL, but even if I hadn’t, I’m sure I’d have had no problems stitching this. I’m really looking forward to seeing what February’s is like now.

  1. oh yes it’s looking lovely – the shape in the middle reminds me of a quilt block. I’ve just rushed around doing the chores and now I’m stalking the postman. Hopefully I’ve not made a complete boo boo and the thread colours will look good with the fabric!

    I think it’s about time that I found something to tempt you with you know!


    • I like the way the centre pieces look so textured, and yes, a bit like a quilt block.

      I think tempting me into the world of fabric, and possibly quilting is quite enough for now thank you 😉


  2. perle is always nice to work with, and those colours are very pretty
