Days #41-#43

Linda and I are starting new projects for every day in February.  Here are three more new ones!
 
Day #41 is Fractal 156 from Cross Stitch Collectibles.  I really like this design and can't wait to see how it turns out.  I'm using 14 ct black Aida, so I won't have to stitch the black background.  My daughter says it's psychedelic!  This pattern has 88 different colors, and I'm still missing 22 of the floss colors, so I'll have to put it aside for awhile until I stock up.  I plan to go to JoAnn's on Monday with my 20% off entire purchase coupon!

Day #42 is Kitty Wreath, a cute ornament from Wal-Mart from way back when they used to have a cross stitch department.  I might keep this one or give it to my friend.  We both have kitties like this.

Day #43 is Burnt to Perfection by Sue Hillis Designs.  I am stitching this on 28 ct Tea-Dyed Monaco.  I think I will give this one to my brother, who does most of the cooking for his family.  The finished size will be 5" x 7".
