Crazy January starts 10-12

I'm still having fun using the Random Number Generator to choose a new start each day from my UCJC 2013 page!

Day #10 is Fall Welcome, an Imaginating chart by Diane Arthurs.  I started with one of the pumpkins.  It is stitched on 14 ct Lambswool Aida and will be about 4" x 15".
Fall Welcome
Day #11 is Halloween Happiness, an Imaginating chart by Sandra Cozzolino.  I stitched the dark part of the moon.  It will be 3.5" x 11.5" on 18 ct Davos fabric. I don't know the color name, some kind of brown.

Day #12 is Hamburger & French Fries from the Incredible Edibles designs.  I started stitching the top and bottom bun on a Charles Craft huck towel with a 14 ct Aida insert.  I might give this away as a gift.  It all depends if I fall in love with it or not!  LOL

I bought an 11" x 14" red metal frame at Joann's for So Many Tools.  I didn't want to get something too big with a mat.  Red is my dad's favorite color!
So Many Tools - FRAMED!
Happy Birthday, Dad!

Your dad is SO cute! The red frame is perfect. It was fun watching your progress on Tools, and it's nice that it made it to it's home with your dad!

Great starts, I really like the look of the Fall Welcome. Great job on the framing. I think the metal frame sets it off along with its colour.

Tools look terrific in red! Your Dad looks pleased with your work - whoo hooo! Many new cool starts - do you do the random pick all year, or how will you choose your projects come February and beyond?
