Starting the Year with a Start

It's Crazy January time again!

Fifteen starts this month - I don't know if I'll do them all in the first fifteen days like I did last year or not - so it will be a fun, fun month!

Here is Day One's start. I put all the names of the projects in a hat and let the Goth Chick pull the first one out. She picked one that is for her... I'm kinda suspicious... lol!

It's Mudkip, from the DorkStitch blog. Here's how the finished project will look.

And here's my very cute start. He fits nicely in a 7 inch hoop.

I also had a finish yesterday - I saved it for January First because I wanted one on New Years Day since I want a lot of finishes this year. No, I'm not superstitious, why do you ask?

First Snow, a freebie by Drawn Thread. The specialty stitches were fun - three different types of Pine Stitch for the tree and all the snowflakes are Smyrna Crosses.

I also did this yesterday, which was heaps of fun! Literally!

Sorted out a huge pile of floss into its proper project container.

I got floss for QS Lovers

Which is my HAED stitch-a-long this year.

Which will be my first start from Witch Stitch

and a lot of floss for Sprites from the above-mentioned Dork Stitch blog! There are soooooo many new ones I want to do :D

Those are some bright colors!

I got three nice-sized pieces of fabric, some needles, a skien of grey yarn, and more floss for some small projects. Surprisingly, there were no kits that I just had to have. That's a first for a JoAnn's trip!

So I had a really fun New Years. How about you guys?

I'll post my new rotation soon!

  1. The winter tree is really pretty, especially on that floss color! It's really perfect for the project! Also, you're so fast to have stitched Mudkip's entire outline in a day! I can't wait to see it all filled in and nifty. Happy new year, and good luck with all 15 of the new projects!

  2. Good luck with your projects! I love seeing them come together on your blog. *grins* Wish I'd been quick enough to get in on the HAED SAL, but maybe next year.
