Here is my January 1st start - LHN's Home of a Needleworker. I switched out the DMC for GAST Cinnamon, not a lot of variegation but I love the colour. And not a bad start either!
I tried taking a picture first, and even though we are having a bright sunny day (YEAH) but cold -12 degrees C, my picture still came out dark and gloomy. Must be something on the settings that I haven't got quite right. Once I figure it out, I think I'll retake my WIP photos, they are awful and certainly aren't encouraging me to continue with them.
We went out for a wonderful New Year's Day brunch with Carrie and JF and some of their friends who were still recuperating from the celebrations of the night (and morning). But today its back to work and back to the drudgery for me, although the teenagers are still in bed of course. I don't expect to see them until past noon. Well they might as well enjoy their last few days of holiday.
