The skaters are done in one over one (on Sunday they only had feet). In fact, at the weekend the whole piece looked like it had just been started and Mum recons I am a faster stitcher than her, not so sure about that one.

- Spring Arbor ~ The Drawn Thread (this week)
- St Nicholas Tree Skirt ~ Dimensions (next week)
That brings me to the first week in February and time to start the March picture for the calendar, I have sorted the threads all ready. Then back to the rotation. With a week per project I think I have a spare week so I might start something else, mm I wonder what?

First to be completed was the 'Cat Lovers' biscornu from The Sweetheart Tree. My mum has always given me a little sewing project on Christmas day and this was the one for 2008. I had previously done the matching scissor fob. The chart was again a gift from my mum to cheer me up after the death, in early December, of one of my cats.
As originally charted the cats did not have whiskers so I added them using the scissor fob chart as a guide.
The February picture of the Mill Hill 2003 calendar series took a week to complete. This picture does not reflect how much the beads and the metallic ribbon make it sparkle.
This little treasure took just a few evenings. Barnabee's Bride from Just Nan. A cross stitch scissor fob fits inside the body of a jeweled bee which has a treasure inside it. In the stash I also have the matching biscornu 'When Barnabee met Bella' . The final photo for this post shows the needle roll inside the bee!
