Report # 1
Today was the last day of the (Modified Ultimate) Crazy January Challenge 2012. For today's start I made another change and pulled out another Mill Hill kit. This one has a Halloween theme - Starlight Ghost. Here is my progress:
Today is also the day to update on my January Theme-a-licious stitching. Without really trying I managed to stitch on quite a number of flowers this month. All the Hearts of Canada charts had Provincial flowers on them and a couple of my other starts and WIPs contained flowers. In the collage below are some of the Provincial flowers I stitched along with Sew Gigi (iStitch Designs) and part of a piece I stitched for an exchange (the full piece and name of the chart will be announce once my partner has received it). The section I am currently working on in the Castles in the Air is called Formal Garden.
Next month's theme is Fangirl February
Send a Valentine to your favorite designer...or at least work on his or her designs for the month!I will be devoting my stitching during the month of February to Little House Needlework designs with a little bit of Teresa Wentzler thrown in (I want to continue making some progress on my oldest UFO - Peacock Tapestry). I have 2 LHN WIPs - Home Of A Needleworker and Home of A Needleworker, Too plus I have another chart - Snowflakes - and a number of her ornament charts that I want to stitch.
I managed a little bit of stitching on my oldest UFO - TW Peacock Tapestry. I have the left hand border almost done.
Well it is getting late and I need to get some sleep. Take care and happy stitching!!!!!!!!
