Day #2 - Mr. Mittens

 
Day #2 of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is Mr. Mittens, a kit from Janlynn, designed by Alma Lynne.  I am having a Snowman SAL with Linda and Randi on Mondays.  We are all stitching different charts but very similar snowmen.  I was able to stitch this during my work day on company time, since I had nothing to type!  I'm posting this update earlier than usual for me, and now I will stitch on something from my WIPocalypse list.

I got this far on the Harley-Davidson logo and all I have left to do is the black background and border.  That will be easy to do while watching TV, since I won't have to count or change colors.  I bought the orange hand-dyed Aida from Stitchnmomma.

I just got back into cross stitching last year when I made a wedding present for my friend.  Then I was in a car accident and was off work for six months so I had plenty of time for stitching.  I have joined Yahoo groups, Facebook groups, and started following and commenting on lots of blogs.  It has been a very fun year!  Here is a summary of my progress in 2011:  I had 26 finishes, 14 which were gifts, 9 donations to World of Charity Stitching, 5 Christmas ornaments, and 2 pieces for myself.  I am starting out 2012 with 10 WIPs.  I wonder what my summary will look like next year!
