To help celebrate New Year - I'm of Scottish descent, how could I not? - I tweaked the Thistle Stitching Accessories pattern to make a suitably festive design. I dated it for the 1st of January - as the belief seems to be whatever you do that day you'll do throughout the year, so why not some stitching? I can't believe it's a new decade already though - where did the Noughties go?
The design uses only whole stitches, no French knots and only four colours, so will be quite a nice design to do if you're feeling a little fragile from the late night and too much champagne! And the fob will hardly take any time at all - I'm planning on stitching this when The Hermit and I go to my parent's for the traditional New Year Lunch!
If you would like a copy of the chart, please comment below and leave an email address unless yours is visible in your blog profile. Some people ask for charts but I have no way of getting them to them :o( Charts are sent in PDF format.
If you do stitch this design, I'd love to see the finished article - and there will be a prize for any I show on my blog!
If you feel so inclined, a donation to the MS Trust for this chart would be appreciated. Pennies will do - and you can make payment via the link in my sidebar or by clicking here
There is no obligation to make a donation - you will be sent the chart whether or not you choose to make a donation, as I appreciate that some people are not in a financial position to do so.
