New Year, New Start

For the past few years it has been a tradition of mine to start a new piece on January 1st. I had many options to choose from, but when the time came this is the one that called my name.

This is the Four Seasons Band Sampler by Sally Hesketh. It was published in four parts in the Just Cross Stitch magazine in 2011.

I'm stitching it on 32 count Platinum Belfast linen with Anchor threads.

Looking forward to stitching the alphabet next. I love stitching alphabets!

I've been searching everywhere for this pattern. So far I have only been able to find the "Summer" and "Fall" parts. Would you consider sharing ???
