January Stitchalong: hang it up and enjoy!
Can it be? We've finally arrived at week 4 of the January Stitchalong, and we're done! Or at least, I'm done - last week I walked you through possibilities for covering the backs of your letters and hanging them.

Just 4 tacks, some ribbon, and some wallspace, and we're done!
On to your projects!

Kleas gave us a tantalizing preview of some of her couching - knowing her - it's going to be great!

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed the January Stitchalong! If you'd still like to give it a try, remember you can always join in - here's the free template - just add your pics to the pool and tag them "JanStitchalong".
Here's a list of the previous weeks:
Week 1: Pattern
Week 2: Couching 101
