Quite by accident I happened upon this project (mostly in German but hey so what - I'll use a translator) whilst I was on a blog cruise. You know the sort of thing where you click on a link which leads to another link and another and then you find yourself completely inspired and lose a couple of hours in the process.
I haven't done any cross stich for a number of years. My youngest child is 6 and I still haven't done his birth sampler despite starting it a long time ago. I bet it is well over 5 years since I touched any of it. Anyway I love how this is in 12 parts spread throughout the year. Our house is *fingers crossed* going to see a lot of work over the coming year due to a loft conversion which needs all kinds of other things doing to meet building regulations. Anyway I thought that it would be nice on a wall somewhere in one of the altered rooms to mark the year and a small section once a month is probably something I can keep up with.
Here are January and February and part of the border.
