Crazy January start #1

Happy New Year!  It's time for the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge and starting something new every day in January!

Day #1 is Wicked Witch by La-D-Da.  I decided to use 14 ct Rustico Aida in Meadow Green by Zweigart.  I'm using Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe Medium Gray floss for the border and black DMC 310 for the letters.  The finished size will be 3" x 13".

Just to make sure I'm not leaving my other WIPs and UFOs lost and forgotten, I'm going to pair up each new start with one of my old starts from my WIPocalypse page. This is the page where I keep current photos of all of my works in progress (WIPs).

A perfect match for Wicked Witch is the witch herself in I'll Get You My Pretty, a freebie from Sue Hillis Designs.  This is one of my Crazy January starts from 2012.  I haven't stitched on it since June 2013.  Today I finished stitching the witch.  All that is left to do is her broom, the moon, and another bat.  This is stitched over 2 on 32 ct Voodoo Belfast linen by Picture This Plus and will be about 4" x 10".
I'll Get You My Pretty update #3
These two designs will look great in my Wizard of Oz collection!

Happy Stitchy New Year!

Great new start and what a great idea teaming it up with a wip. I had been wondering what was the plan for the year stitching wise. Happy New Year.

Oh great to see your first start for the Crazy Challenge. I have always loved this challenge but this year I won't be doing it - I will start 10+ BAPs this year, one per week.
I'm looking forward to seeing your next Crazy starts.
