Flower of the Month by EMS Designs - My progress

 * Updates will be at the bottom of the page *

I've started the January Flower and have planned on sewing each month's flower onto an afghan made from monk's cloth. Progress so far - I've prepared the monk's cloth by  using a straight stitch about an inch in from the edge - removing threads to create the fringe ,washing and drying it. It will shrink so if you decide to go this route. I would suggest getting maybe 8 -10 inches(or your best judgement) more than your actual size for an afghan.This piece before washing was a yard and a half.

 Sept. 12th 2016---Thought I would post an update since the last 2 evenings  was spent  replacing  all my photos on the blog and removing link pictures that no longer showed up in the community and my profile. Hoping everyone has had a good stitching evening :) Happy Stitching ~ C's Cross Stitch Creations

  1. Looking forward to seeing your progress on the SAL. If I didn't have so many pieces going at this time, I'd join you. I'm determined to finish all that I've started before I start another new though.

    Hope to become good friends. You stitch beautifully.

    1. Thank you Miss LindaLee. It is perfectly ok that you can't join at this time. I may have another sometime next year if I can find anything interesting :) I hope that we become good friends as well. Happy Stitching!

  2. Greetings! I'd LOVE to join you in the SAL.....just need to get out the fabric and get myself started. I'll post when I have January done - and I'll post about the SAL on my blog, too. AWESOME!
