Of course, I reserve the right to swap threads (not color family) if I find the threads just don’t work with the stitches.

I better get started stitching!!!

Thanks for sharing your colors. I have to pull my colors together for this project but I am having a ball watching all the choices bloggers are making. Have a great stitching weekend.

It was a good weekend – it rained here on Sunday. So, I got the outline done & the January stitch is working up quickly. Looking forward to checking back in on other bloggers too. It’s alot of fun.

I love your colors – mainly because they are very close to the ones I chose – also from my stash! I’m working on grey congress cloth, with the greys, silvers, blacks and a bit of red for contrast. I’ve done the outlines for the first month, now I will sit and wait for the second installment in February. Hopefully, some of my UFO projects will get done while I’m waiting.

Thanks for posting your colors.

Thanks – I am a little worried about no real color for contrast but I’ll see how it goes. I love red & black together. I got the outline done this weekend & the January stitch is working up quickly. So, I’ll be getting back to my ongoing projects soon.

Hi Melita,

Enjoyed seeing your color selection. Yours is going to be very sophisticated colors. If you want a little bit more contrast, add in some more metallics such as black and more silver or white.

I still haven’t decided what I’m going to use yet. I might wait another month or two to see how the project develops before deciding. I’m leaning towards the blue families with maybe some yellow or cream or red as an accent. Still not sure…
