Crazy January Challenge Day 1 - Lizzie Kate "Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle" stitched on 32 count Desert Sand linen with the DMC floss listed in the chart. I love this already and I don't have any color on it yet.
Crazy January Challenge Day 2 - Olde Willow Stitchery "By the Grace of God" stitched on 28 count September Star Linen from Lakeside Linen with Olde Willow floss. I wasn't sure about the stars on the fabric, primarily because the design is pretty busy as it is. So far I really like it and the Olde Willow floss is fabulous.
Work project - SamSarah Designs "Sugarplum Stocking" stitched on 20 count WDW Guacamole with the Caron Watercolours called for, so far just Celery. I was worried that the 20 count Weeks fabric would be too floppy and inspire ugly memories of the tabletopper. Thankfully the linen tightens up perfectly in the q-snaps. Love it!
I know it is early - only Day 2 - but frankly I feel energized! So far I love everything I've started and I am not feeling overwhelmed at all. The only thing I'm a teensy bit anxious about is that some of the fabric in the project bags may need to be pressed before any stitching can commence. I need to get out the iron, all of the project bags and get everything *really* ready. It has been a tight squeeze in the Diane bag all these years and I foresee a wrinkle. Or two.
I am not happy about having links to pictures vs. actual in-the-blog pictures. Maybe the planets will align and I can make it work tomorrow. Ah, the drama of it all.
