The people chose: New Starts

It's a new year, but some things never change, and one of these things are Jo's wonderful SALs on every corner of the year! I somehow managed to be quite on time for this first checkin of the year, but I am not so confident that isn't going to change either...well, we'll see.

In this SAL, we, the stitchers, get to chose the subject each month, and a most fitting topic for the new year is 'new starts'. I have been good and only had one new start this year (and I hope to keep it this way for a while, apart from a few smalls that I can finish right away). The one start I had could not wait any longer because it's a Temperature SAL - the same one Jo herself did last year, in fact, I'm using the same colour chart she did. If you don't know what that is: It's a free pattern created by Hetti which is divided in 365 blocks of 5x5 stitches (some are a little bigger than that), one for each day of the year. The colour chosen for each day depends on the temperature - I am using the avarage temperature in each day to even out 'spikes' in both directions. Here are the first five days I stitched this afternoon:






It was a lot of fun to do these first few stitches, and I'm kind of bummed I can't stitch more right now! I don't know if it's just the 'high' of having a new start, the colours, or being back to my favourite fabric (32ct Murano <3), but I'm really enjoying this one.

I've seen some other blog postings about this project and they are gorgeous! Nice start. You should link up with Sarah at http://sarahdidit.blogspot.com/2019/01/wednesday-weather-report-85-1219.html
Any kind of temperature project is welcome.

This looks an interesting project I'd love to do something similar to use up my threads.AriadnefromGreece!

Thanks for taking part in The People's Choice this month. I am so excited that you are stitching the Temperature SAL this year. I really enjoyed doing it last year.

A great start. I love the blues, even though they mean it's quite cold at the moment! x

It's super fun to stitch. I usually work on it on Saturdays so I can stitch a few days at once!
