Crazy loves company! I decided to join in on the Crazy January Challenge 2012. (There are over 130 similarly crazy folks taking the challenge.) I will be starting a new project each day for the first 15 days of January, and a different WIP project for each of the last 16 days of January. 31 projects that I will attempt to finish during 2012.
Many of my cross stitch kits have been locked away in storage & I just decided that it was time to pull out the box and get to work on them.
My list won't be complete until after Christmas, but here is what I plan to include so far:
10 & 11) I am planning to work a modified version of the Quaker Heart pattern found here: http://www.interweave.com/needle/projects/cross-stitch.asp
I modified the pattern, altered the alphabet and added the saying "I count life's greatest riches as my friends who count their stitches" to the reverse side. I will be making this as a giftie for a friend.
12) I also plan to work a *wildcard* free-form sampler. I will incorporate motifs from old-time sampler designs, as well as some of my own original designs.
13) Poinsettia Mini Stocking - 3"x 4" 14 ct Aida. Stocking stuffer kit. I needed to include a few smaller projects in my list
15) Autumn Sampler (Janlynn) 14" x 18"on 14 ct Aida. I also have the Winter and Summer kits. If I happen to complete all of my projects this year, I will work those into the mix as well.
