New Year, New Starts

Happy New Year, dear readers. Yes, I'm late with my WiPocalypse update. Still, better late than never, right? I've had two new starts. I figured January should be a guilt-free month.
First, as planned, is Magic Garden Sampler by Shakespeare's Peddlar.
I'm stitching this with HDF on Lakeside Linens Navy Bean. I absolutely love how the silk glides through the fabric.
Next, I started Home of A Needleworker (Too)! by Little House Needleworks as well.
It's stitched on the same fabric as Magic Garden Sampler. I've also converted the colors to HDF. It's not an exact color conversion as I'm only eyeballing the floss and choosing what I deemed fit but I'm loving the results so far.
Last but not least, I've joined the TUSAL and this is my first update:
Have a great weekend, everyone and happy stitching!
