First DCJC finish!

Last night I completed the first of my new starts for Debbie's Crazy January Challenge 2015.  Here it is...

The Wizard of Oz by The Little Stitcher
Started 1st January 2015, finished 21st January 2015
Stitched on 36 count platinum linen with DMC threads

A couple of close ups...



This was a lovely piece to work on.  The colours are beautiful.  I did think about using hand-dyed floss for the writing, but then decided to stick with the simplicity of DMC.  I'm glad I did as the rich browns and greens really set off the piece.

My new plan is to work on one of my new starts and one older piece at a time.  The older piece will be used for the YOTA SAL.  At the moment it's this one...
Clocks by Lanarte

I used the random number thingy to select one of my new CJC starts to work on next, and this one came out!
Autumn House by The Trilogy

Here it was when I worked on it on 11th January:

See you soon for another update!
