I'm a little bit behind on posting my starts of the Crazy January Challenge. It is already day 4 today, but I have only a picture of day 2 to show.
This is the start of the 1827 Biedermeier reproduction Sampler. I have the chart in my stash for at least 15 years but never really liked the colours in this sampler and therefore never started it. Now that I finally did start, I realized that the picture on the chart got the colours all wrong and that it is actually quite beautiful.
I got a lot of stitching done on the first day, due to my meeting with Niina, Jaana and Virpi in a Helsinki café. We had a great evening with tea and hot chocolate and lots of stitching.
No need to say that we draw a lot of attention to other visitor of the café. Knitting in public is, at least here in Helsinki, quite normal, but stitching, that is a whole different story.
