 Hi friends! I have gotten another monthly pattern done. ⛄January Square Dance by Heart in Hand⛄ stitched two over two with DMC on 32ct mystery evenweave. 

I changed just a few of the colors. I did not realize until I had this totally mounted that I forgot the tiny buttons! 🤦‍♀️ I do NOT want to undo it. I think it looks fine. I left it as is. Actually, this may be my favorite one of the Square Dance series. They are just SO cute!!

And here is my latest finish, another monthly. ❄️January Snows by Bent Creek❄️


I stitched this two over two with DMC on 32ct lambswool linen. I changed every single color on this one. You can see the original, called for colors on the pattern cover.

💗 It is time to start decorating for Valentine's Day❣️

 I just love it. All the PINK you know. 😉 HA! 💘'Happy Heart Heart Day' by The Trilogy Designs.

I am now beginning my new monthly series, Rick Rack Row by Pine Mountain Designs. It is an old series. The only problem is that I do not have March or October. 🤔 I keep searching Ebay and Etsy for the patterns. We do not celebrate Halloween, so I would be changing the October pattern anyways. So I probably won't even need that one, or get it. I may just make my own pattern for that month. I do want March though.☘️

Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by. Psalm 57:1

I hope and pray you are staying healthy and safe where you are my friends. It is becoming increasingly hard to do here in America. Take care. God bless you. Thanks for stopping by. 💗 I appreciate YOU!

Stitching and praying,

Two great Smalls for January. I love all those different sized Snowmen on the first piece!
Keep an eye on the UK eBay for the missing charts, I can get them and send them to you.

Your January monthly finishes are adorable, Vickie. Awesome start to the Valentine decorating! Have you tried calling around to shops to see if they have the March monthly from Pine Mountain? Cute comic!

I like your January finish. Have a nice Sunday.

Carol said...

Your monthly finishes are darling! I think it looks fine without the buttons, but a tiny dab of glue on each one would work, too :) I always glue on my charms (horrors!!!). Ha ha!

Hope your pain level is coming down, Vickie! Enjoy your day ♥

Your January looks great, I like the pattern very much and it goes so well with today - we have new snow.
And I love your fat Bent Creek snowman.
I keep my fingers crossed that you will still find the patterns.
Happy Stiching, Martina

January finishes are both cute! Love the funny at the bottom of your post.

Mary said...

Both of your monthly are so sweet. I got a good laugh out of your afro poodle!!

Barb said...

All the January smalls are so cute! I would imagine you love decorating for Valentines day with all the pretty pink and red. My home has lots of red, navy, and gold so the 4th of July is easy for me.

Good morning! You are so good at decorating for the holidays and special days. I put up a heart by the front door. Does that count? LOL One of my goals this year is to stitch ornaments for Christmas. I'm collecting free patterns but with doggie potty may be Christmas 2022 before I get some done. LOL Have a fabulous day!

Ele said...

Great stitching Vickie! the cartoon made me laugh, thanks for sharing

I do hope that some dear soul will be able to helpyou with the March and October patterns. Best wishes for a blessed and beautiful week. (Catherine sent me!)

Look at all those sweet snowmen. It's much easier to enjoy yours rather than make our own outside! Oh yes, February is certainly your month.
I know I'm way behind on commenting, so I hope by now you've found your missing patterns?
