My first new start was at the beginning on the month but I keep forgetting to show you....
This is a Design Works kit called "Birdcage" that I have had sitting in my stash for sometime. I had originally pulled it out as a possible new start for the January challenges but it just never seemed to get to the top of the pile.

Second new start in February was for a mystery SAL that I signed up for in late December. I didn't get this started before now as I needed a number of the threads including the dark blue for the border.
The "Deer and Grapes Mystery Sampler SAL" is designed by Jean Farish. Jean has an Etsy store that you can purchase the most delightful designs from, including the Mystery SAL (I think it's still available). She has set up a FB page for those of us that have purchased the SAL to that we can post our progress and keep in touch with her and the others that are stitching this lovely sampler. So far part 1 and 2 have been released with part 3 due any day now.
This is as far as I have managed to get after a couple of stitching days in February...

And for my final new start in February I have a design that I started stitching as the February Theme for the Hallowe'en Ornie SAL Blog. February's theme is "Skeletons".
Finding a skeleton that I liked wasn't that easy at first... but then I remembered a design that I had put on my "must stitch" list ever since I saw it in the Just Cross Stitch 2013 Halloween Special Edition magazine.
The design is from Praiseworthy Stitches and is called "Dancing in the Moonlight". I am stitching this on a beautiful fabric called "Riders on the Storm" (32ct Belfast Opal) from Colour Cascade Fabrics. I just love this design. I started stitching this last weekend and worked on it until I got to a skeleton! So here he is.... my skeleton!

That's it for now... I think I have now caught up with all my latest new starts. My next post will be my February "Jingles" update and then we will be into March! Goodness where is the year going?
Til next time, happy stitching!
