January Stitching for me has been wonderful I have been blessed with some extra free time and I have been able to get a couple more finishes. The first up is the Hands On Design Year of Chalk January. And I did not do this on the suggested fabric and floss. I think this fabric is platinum and the colors are Hazelnut and Navy - I think Weeks - I wanted this completed before the end of January and after finishing the Woodland Sampler I just couldn't work on the Gunmetal Fabric - to give it that Chalkboard look. So here it is
I now only have July and August and all months will be done - accept February - I don't do Valentine stuff - just a personal choice. But I am stitching - Freedom by Primitive Hare to display for the month of February representing Black History Month. (I am in the US) This is in my stash (yes Stitch from Stash 2017). I am changing the color of her dress to a red. It represents more the color of the cost of Freedom.
Speaking of American Freedom - I have finished Liberty House - Started back in 1993 when this house represented my house and family - long story short - things change - and this got set aside. for 23 years. As you can see - I only did the house - I inserted the picture of where I was in October 2017 and what the chart does look like. when year of wips started. I only put six stars on the roof - one for each of the kids - and for the EST. I stitched my birth year. This makes 7 WIP finishes for the year of WIPS Challenge - but I picked the easiest ones to complete first.
