December. labours of the months
December from the Labours of the months, split stich, wool on wool.
I find this one interesting as modern folks seem to expect December to depict Christmas, and all seem surprised that New year is deemed more important here – it’s a good discussion point.
I was feeling quite pleased with Mr Skelly, but alas, the background fabric colour ran a little and he’s gone pink. Gareth agrees with me that he now looks far too healthy to be a proper skeleton.
I know, like buses, two at once. I had finished this one before I got round to plying the handspun wool for the October beasties, is why.
Tomorrow’s task is sewing all 12 to a backing cloth so I can get the sizes right for the filler panels(and you know I’m going to get bored with those – me and repetition are not friends)
