Like many of you, I've been participating in the Snowflower Diaries Joyful World SAL. I have no idea what I will do with these designs in the end or even if I will have the staying power to stitch them all. I decided to do them on 28 ct tea Monaco, one-over-one, in DMC. I'm doing each individually for more flexibility later. I considered leaving off the month names, but in the end I decided I liked them as is. Even if I never finish-finish them, I'm enjoying the stitching so much that they will have definitely served their purpose anyway. The designs are just so precious! I have finished January and February with minimal color changes. There were a few places that didn't have enough contrast for my fabric. The two photos below make it appear that I used a different fabric for each, but that's just camera tricks. The February photo is probably more true to the real life color.
Here's a shot next to a quarter so you can see how tiny and cute these are:
