PhotoHunt "Add" & Crazy Challenge Day 3

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "add".

At first I thought this was going be a challenging to find just the right picture.  But you all know I have an odd sense of humour at times and an odd outlook on things.  I took this picture on New Year's Eve when Todd and I were travelling to visit with friends.


I think there's a little room to "add" a few more signs!

Yesterday's Crazy Challenge Start # 3 was this Michael Powell from The World of Cross Stitching Issue 164


Here's how far I got on my one day's work.  I spent a lot of time, wasting time online yesterday!  All of the blue sky is stitched and most of the white snow, except at the bottom.

Hi Dani, love your work but then I always did. Your challenge for 2012 inspired me to start my own - I don't know if my friends will forgive me but a lot of them have joined in. Good job on the Accolade. Best wishes for 2013, good health, lots of love and of course lots of stitching time. Louise

Love the Michael Powell. But it's funny, I stitch them the exact opposite of you. The sky and snow come last. I guess it doesn't matter if the end result is the same. LOL!

Giovanna said...

Very nice start, and congrats on the finishes in the previous post.

Ruth said...

Another great start and very funny pic! I'd say there's just a bit more room but not much lol.

geeky Heather said...

Great start! That's, like, 5x as much as I'd get done in a day. =)

Oh, how easy it is to waste time on line. I often call my computer the thief of time as I know that I could be more productive if I didn't spend so much time on it.

That's a really fun chart, and I loved the stag in the last post. Which reminds me, I need to do a 'catching up with all the stuff I didn't post yet' post....

Great start to it and what a lovely design. I must have a look and see if I have a copy of the magazine.

Karen said...

I must be a slow stitcher cause that looks like excellent progress for one days work! I love Michael Powell!! :)

Julie said...

Michael Powell designs are so funky.

Linda said...

Great new start Dani. I think I might need to subscribe to that magazine.

Very clever take on "add"

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

This was on my list for December but didn't quite make it!
It looks quick too.
