Another New Start - Monthly Series

Last year I did a year long monthly design for the 2016 Smalls SAL. I really enjoyed doing them in the month they were for and for some reason I really LOVE seasonal things right now. So I started the search for a new year long monthly design for this year. I found a set that I fell in love with.

I can't find a picture of all of them together. So you'll have to look them up if you want to see the other months. I will show you what January is going to look like though...
They are from Pine Mountain Designs. They look like old photographs in an album to me. Snapshots of what the month represents. I'm using 32ct lambswool evenweave for each one so the focus is the design and not the fabric. I've held onto these patterns since last Feb. So the wait is finally over! Be back soon with progress.
