As a reminder, here is the pattern for the January block for Anniversaries of the Heart.
When I last shared, I had done this much...2 borders, a snowflake and I had started the house.
And here's where I am now. I've finished the house, more snowflakes, and the entire border.
Though I had planned to use the 'called for' colors, I have deviated from that. I can see now why so many people who stitch this change the colors. Apparently since this is an older pattern, some of the colors are made differently than they were years ago. So the 'called for' colors are not the same as they were years ago.
When I began stitching some colors, they just didn't show up enough. I didn't rip any of this out- just kept going, and started changing some colors as I went along. If I had to do it over, I would have picked different colors to start with, but in the scheme of this big project, I don't think anyone will notice.
What a busy week we've had - I had a physical yesterday and I have a dental appoint today. Hubby had a dental appointment yesterday and has a dermatologist appointment tomorrow. Whew! At least all these routine appointments will be over in one fell swoop!
Continue to stay safe!
