Crazy January starts 19-21

I'm still keeping up with a new start every day!  The rest of the year will be so much fun when I can stitch anything I want.

Day #19 is Yo Ho Ho Ho by Sue Hillis Designs.  It's hard to see, but I started with Santa's white beard in the center of the design.  I also stitched the fur on the cuffs and hem of his coat.  I am stitching it on 14 ct gold dusted Stardust Aida and it will be 4" x 6". You can click on the picture to make it bigger and then maybe you can see my stitches!

Day #20 is Circle of Songbirds, a kit by Janlynn.  I bought this about 15 years ago and I'm finally starting it now.  I decided to use 28 ct linen instead of the white 14 ct Aida that came in the kit.  The finished size will be a 12" circle, so I need to find a 14" square frame.

Day #21 is Autumn Heart, a freebie from Anne les Petites Croix.  I am stitching it on 14 ct white Aida and it will be 6" x 5.5".

Only 10 more new starts in the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge!  I wonder which one I'll finish first!

Love the starts, I'm doing an ornament and have just done the white and looks similar amount to yours and I keep looking at it to see if I've actually done anything lol. I really like the Circle of songbirds, thats so pretty. Only 10 more to go and how are you going to decide on what to stitch then...random number generator or some other cool way ? Looking forward to seeing what your first finish will be.

I did a new start for everyday of January last year and sadly did not complete one of the projects. I wish you every success in getting some completions :-)

I love all your picks to stitch but the Santa is my fav I have never seen this pattern before.
By the way I do wish we had warmer weather like you, we have a balmy -10 degrees today in Minnesota near Minneapolis up north it is colder.
Happy stitching
Catherine

You are one busy stitcher. I love several of the designs you've chosen and can't wait to see your progress through the year. Do you usually stitch every night? For about how long?

Kate said...

Great starts. Looking forward to seeing your progress on all during the year.

Pirate Santa made me smile, that's going to be so cute. I love that Autumn heart and yes, love birds too. These are going to be fun to watch grow as they emerge from your needle!
