Crazy January start #7

Day #7 of the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is Collection, a kit from Designs for the Needle.  I'm making this for my mom and dad.  They're both very experienced "collectors!"  This is on 14 ct antique white Aida with the DMC floss in the kit.  It will be 7" x 5".
Collection
I paired this one up with another funny saying from my WIPocalypse list, The IT Crowd, a freebie chart from Dorkstitch.  It will say, "Have you tried turning it off and on again?"  I started this one last January and only stitched the word "turning" and never touched it again after the first day.  Today I stitched more words.  This will be a gift for my son to decorate his office at work!

Haha, such a funny saying. Love it!

Both great sayings! You got a lot done on your son's piece. I really like the one for your mom and dad. When I first saw it on your CJC page I thought you would stitch it for yourself for your stash "collection"!

Both of these are really cute and I dearly love the sayings. You are making great progress on these.

I love your Q Snap Huggies....

I may have to order some from her. Thanks for the link for that.

Happy Stitching

Both are interesting sayings!! My favourite is 'collection'. Even applicable for our collection -- the stash..isn't it?

I absolutely LOVE the IT Crowd and may have the same stitch chart you do! I keep meaning to do it for the office, I just haven't yet.

I can't even imagine having 31 new projects going at once! What a challenge!

I love these! My Hubby wants me to stitch the IT crowd one for his office at work (he's an IT engineer), I keep meaning to do it but always forget about it. Hopefully seeing your progress might spur me on!
