Crazy January SAL

Well the first two days went off without a hitch. I decided to give myself a break from Monopoly and decided to work on a few of the new starts that I have started on January 1st. So I decided considering I already started 15 new projects on the first day of January that I'd join this Crazy January SAL. The objective is to start 15 new projects in 15 days. Which really isn't a problem for me lol. The challenge will be to finish them in 2011. Now that is Crazy I hope I make it :) Plus with a model to stitch and some of the ones that I have started already that I want to get near or completed this will be interesting lol

So one project I decided to work on was Snowman by Margaret Sherry. I did have to stop as I do not have one of the colours, which I will pick up tomorrow as I'm out and about tomorrow. So here is my progress on that. This is being worked on 28 ct blue evenweave that I had in my stash.

So with not having that one colour I am off and running on Santa's North Pole. It is being stitched on 28ct Hand painted linen called Nuthatch. Wow what an experience that one is. The fabric is beautiful but it has the sparklies in it and that gets a bit annoying. And the colour changes are amazing there is so much changes lol. I think HAED is mild by comparison on this chart. But I am loving it. It will be interesting to see if it will actually fit on the fabric. Here is the first part of the tree. I decided to backstitch as I go as there is so much backstitching. If I left it to the end it wouldn't get done. So here is the picture of it.

I am enjoying it. So we shall see what I feel like working on tomorrow :)
Have a great Night
