BBQ Queen SAL update #4

BBQ Queen update #4
Linda and I are both stitching charts by Diane Arthurs on Wednesdays.  I finished stitching her arm, part of her purple dress, and collar.  I hope to start on her face next week.

Day #60 is Boules Baroques, a free chart from Vava's blog.  I am stitching these in different colors on perforated paper, then I will cut them out to make ornaments.

Linda and I extended the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge (31 starts) to February (29 starts) for a total of 60 new starts!  But Linda is going all the way to 100 new starts!  I am happy with my 60, plus a few previous WIPs.  Everything is listed on my WIPocalypse page.  I don't know how many I will finish in 2012, but hopefully at least half of them!  Thank you so much for watching my progress and cheering me on!

Rofl Oh my gosh I can't believe she's going for the 100, well good for her, I need to keep cheering her on another bit.
Loving the look of the BBQ Queen, she's so bright and cheery. Love your idea for ornaments and they will look great I'm sure.
You did great with all your starts, certainly more than I could manage.

BBQ is looking good. I really enjoyed stitching it. Wish Diane had more designs like that one. Congrats on your 60 starts. Now you can start thinking about next years 60 starts.
