1 A MONTH ....JANUARY



I have launched the “1   a Month Club”  and the first   decoration is a mouse holding a Christmas wreath, here are five of them all lined up ready for collection . They were fun to stitch and I love how they all are  a little different in their expressions.












The “1 a month club” is limited to five friends who  are prepared to buy a Christmas decoration each month for ten months, this fund raiser is instead of my doing a stall at the church fair, and allowing me to make decorations  that are not so cost limiting. As before the funds raised will go to St Andrews Church.
I have no shortage of ideas I want to create, so for me this will be a real fun project and keeping it to just five it will not feel like doing a mass produced production line. ( The five will occasionally be 6  when I want one for myself) There will possible be a basket of small decorations for sale later in the year, and I have just received another packet of Christmas buttons from Desley in Australia  to give inspiration.                                                          Thank you Desley  for you generous gift.

Caitlin and I plan to have Sunday afternoon as stitching time together and first up will be a new set of needlework accessories  on a woodland theme  and not limiting the techniques we will use. I need to share as much as I can with her while I still can, Now 22 years old, she first started stitching with me at the age of 5 and has continued to stitch over the years with her main love being blackwork embroidery time to branch out !. Not sure if I can manage weekly updates on our progress but will try.
