Days #28-#30 - Three new starts!


Day #28 of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge was Cut Thru' North Pole House from Bothy Threads.  I bought this kit from Bothy Threads in the UK because I thought it was just adorable!  I love all the details!

Day #29 of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge was Spring & Fall from The Prairie Schooler.  I started off with the month of March, the lion and the lamb.  Someone gave me this cross stitch fabric with printed borders.  There are three pieces of it with a blank square, circle, and oval in the middle.  I decided to use this for all 12 months in the Spring & Fall and Summer & Winter charts by cutting the pieces into fourths.  I don't mind the printed fabric at all, and think it will look pretty neat!  Linda, Rosemary, and I are having a SAL of these 12 months and trying to finish one per month.

Day #30 of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is The 12 Days of Christmas from The Prairie Schooler.  I am stitching on light tan 18 ct Aida that Linda gave to me.  It's just perfect for this chart!  Thank you, Linda!  I started near the center with "3 French hens."

I missed starting my last four new starts on time because I was staying at my parents' house for awhile, but now I'm home and excited to catch up!  Who knows, I might actually finish something this month, even though Linda and I plan to start 29 more new projects for each day in February, too.  Then I think we'll have enough to keep us busy for the rest of the year, don't you?

Great starts and I to love the cut thru...I hope you get caught up and best of luck with the 29 starts in February. I do think you may have enough to keep you going for a month or two this year.

Great new starts. Good luck with 29 new starts in February too. I think you might just manage to have enough to keep you going this year.

Katie said...

Wow 3 new starts. I would love to see a picture of how you organize your stitching to do piles.

I can't believe you are starting new things every day in Feb too. You're crazy haha. I can't wait to watch.

Okay, I believe that you have officially gone overboard - LOL!! That will make 60 projects going at the same time????? You must be the most organized woman in the world. I'm with Katie - I would love to see how you keep up with all of them!

Can't wait to see what you do in February. It's not like you chose a bunch of small projects in January. I had a hard enough time with just 15 in January! You are my hero!
