Days #31-#33 - Three new starts!

Day #31 of my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is Boo! Club from Lizzie Kate.  I will be stitching all 12 pictures on one piece of 28 ct Prairie Grain linen, stitched over 2.  The first double flip-it is Spooky/Treats.  The finished size will be 5.5" x 24".

Day #32 of my Super-Duper Ultimate Crazy February Challenge is the Rose Border light switch cover from Fond Memories, designed by Laura Doyle.  I bought a light switch cover cross stitch kit at a thrift store for $1, and someone had already stitched Bless This House and started stitching a house.  I picked out the house but decided to leave the words and stitch the Rose Border around it.  This will be a gift for my boyfriend's elderly aunt, and I think she will like the Bless This House words along with the roses!

Day #33 is Bon Noel by gazette94.  I decided to use variegated green, yellow, and red floss.  I will try my first ornament finish on this one with backing fabric and stuffing and a cute ribbon trim.  Wish me luck!  This is also my posting for the X-Stitching Christmas Challenge for the first Saturday of the month.

Great starts Debbie. You did awesome on Boo Club. Sometimes we just need some mindless stitching.
