A New Start for the New Year

HNY everyone! I heralded the year stitching on a new start, CCN Santa's Village. I bought the first block, Santa's House in 2014 so it needed starting. I was inspired by a Facebook group which are running it as a SAL. I plan to stitch all 12 blocks on the one piece of fabric and stitch one house per month.

I made a small start this morning then stitched more than the photo shows while halftime at a cricket match. 

The fabric is 32ct Smokey pearl Belfast linen stitched two over two. I am using Rainbow Treasure braid to add sparkle to the snow.

                                                

Wishing you lots of happy stitching days...

I love this series and have contemplated buying and stitching them myself but have not yet yielded to temptation. Instead I shall enjoy watching your village grow throughout 2016. You've made a great start on lovely fabric. :)

Another fan of Santa's Village here! I like Julie's idea of making bunting from it.
Yours looks beautiful - looking forward to seeing more of it this year.

Santa's Village is adorable! It is the one and only series that I ever had auto shipped as I like the first couple so much. Enjoy stitching them this year.
