Welcome to 2011, my friends! I would like to wish all of you a Happy New Year and my prayer is that we'll all have a productive, fun-filled, and healthy year! A new year deserves a new start! So on this first day of 2011 I started the Crazy January Challenge.
My first project is "Winter Band Sampler" from Little House Needleworks. Believe it or not, after staying up a little past midnight last night, I woke up at 6 AM ready, willing and able to begin! I have to say I'm really excited about this challenge. Let's just hope my eyes and spirit can cope! My LNS was out of the recommended fabric, so I chose 32 Ct Summer Khaki and I am stitching it over one linen thread. I didn't realize how tiny it would be, but I think it's coming out quite nicely. Here is my progress so far...
I promised Rita from Texas that I would do this as a Stitch-a-long (SAL) with her and that I would start today...so there it is, Rita! Hope you were able to begin today too!
I also promised Babs I would start Heart of America on Monday and we would do that as a SAL together. I've got everything ready, Babs...are you set?
I can't decide what to start tomorrow...I'll have to see which way the wind is blowing! LOL I'm supposed to meet up with my buddy Sonya on Tuesday and I'm going to start "Mending" on that day. It will be done on 40 ct silk gauze over one (Yes, we already determined I AM CRAZY!!) and since I've never used gauze before, I'm hoping Sonya will give me some pointers. "Mending" was a birthday gift from Wendy, and has a perfect saying for all that I've been through lately so I'm excited to finally begin stitching it!
I know it's not even 8 PM here, but I'm ready to head to bed. I'm tired and my eyes need a rest so I can begin something new tomorrow. I hope I can sleep! Good night and good luck with whatever challenge you face today! *hugs*
