Thinking Crazy!!!!

January first is almost here and that means several things! The biggest question of course is what am I going
to stitch in 2012?

 Unless some miracle happens I'll be still working on Enchantment of Winter. The original plan had been to finish this piece to have it framed for my Dad's 70th birthday in November.


I'll also still be poking away at the Accolade as I was only semi-successful with stitching a 10x10 block on it whenever I went to pick up my stitching. As for new starts oh boy there's going to be a start-a-palooza at this house! After watching last years Crazy Challenge I decided I wanted to give it a go this January. This means I get to start one new project for the first fifteen days of January, the idea is also to finish all 15 by the end of the year. The starts should be doable since I'm not back to work until the 9th. As for the finishing, a lot of the projects are small so I should be able to finish most of them but the last project on the below list I know I won't be able to finish. I've just had it kitted up for over a year now and just want to start it! So what are my fifteen starts you may ask?

1. Ink Circles Seasonal Mandalas - Winter
2. Ink Circles Seasonal Mandalas - Spring
 3. Ink Circles Seasonal Mandalas - Summer
4. Ink Circles Seasonal Mandalas - Fall
These four new starts are actually a SAL I'm doing this upcoming year with Tracey, Bonnie, Christin, Beatrice, Rebecca, and Clare. I may have forgotten someone and if I have I'm soooo sorry! I am really looking forward to this stitch!

5. JBW - French Country Scaredy Cats

6. Cherrywood Studios - Eat, Sleep, Stitch

7. Lizzie Kate - Snowman '10

  8. Little House Needleworks - Snow White

  9. Mill Hill - Holiday Ornaments VI (thanks Dee)



10. Teresa Wentzler - Sun Dragon


 
 11. Teresa Wentzler - Delightful Dragon Fob

12. Jane Greenoff - Gone Fishing

  13. The Stitcher's Habit - Polar Friends Day

14. The Stitcher's Habit - Polar Friends Night

  15. The Silver Lining - The Big Red

ENjoy the Halloween. I did mine with orange letters (as called for) and black cats. IT was a fast stitch and lots of fun.

Great choices for your 15! I did the Challenge this year and wasn't able to finish a few of the pieces I chose. They were just too darn big - and with all the other WIPs I was also working on! So, those I didn't finish are going into the 2012 WIPocolypse. I look forward to seeing your progress on the Crazy Challenge! Have fun with it!!

Love your choices Dani! I have the seasonal mandelas but don't really feel like stitching them right now so I'll be watching all of you from the sidelines.

Aussie Stitcher said...

Love your choices. You are wise to choose the smaller designs. Most of my wips are baps. What was I thinking?

Joysze said...

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

There's no way I could have 15 starts, it'd make my brain itch LOL!
