Gwen: January Winged Creature

It seems Ana Christina and I were of the same mind. My winged 'creature' is a raven.

January - Winged Creatures

I don´t know if It is a "creature". But they are winged!

By the way, I love black birds!

Tamra's January Winged Creature

Hi All!

For the theme of Winged Creatures I decided on one of Prairie Schooler's Mini Cards.  Owl.

Have a happy stitchy month!


Stephanie's Winged Creature

Hi, I'm Stephanie, aka Ms. OhSewcrafty on my blog, YouTube, and Instagram.  As it's my first time posting here (thank you, Jo, for the invite), here's a brief intro: I'm a longtime stitcher and crafter, jack of all trades.  January's stitch was super fun and it became apparent that I will love stitching Lizzie Kate's Boo Club, it is a nice break from my BAPs.  The bat silhouetted against the moon is pretty cute.  I am using a mix of overdyed threads (the ones that seemed variegated) and the DMC subs, on Dirty belfast linen.

Cheryl's January Winged Creatures

Instead of stitching an ornament this month, I stitched some bats on my "Halloween Pumpkin" from the 2012 Just CrossStitch Halloween Issue. 

I stitched all of the right-hand side border bats, only to discover that the last time I worked on it I had made a tiny mistake and was off by 2 threads.  If I had noticed, I would have only had to frog about 5 stitches and a little back stitching.  Instead, I had to frog out the entire row of bats ... yuk!   Well, I frogged them all out and restitched them. 

I hope your Halloween stitching isn't driving you batty!

Jo's January Stitching - Winged Creatures

Here we are for the first post of the New Year and I'm hoping to use one of my larger pieces each month.  It will be a little bit trickier this year as I haven't planned the themes around any of my stitching!

January is Winged Creatures - Owls, Bats, Crows, Ravens etc.

There are two tiny bats on Jardin Prive's Happy Hallowe'en Night:

Here is the whole piece so far:

There were also bats on my Dracula Book Cover by Dam Good Crafts:

Here is the whole piece so far:

Next month is Candy Canes and Food so I am not sure where I will go for that.  We shall see!
