Crazy January Challenge Day 19

I just couldn't stop at 18......there are so many more things to stitch! 

I worked on this plaid mitten....a new color combination and a new shape.  This will eventually be an ornament, finished inside a blue metal cookie cutter....stop back often and eventually you will see it finished here!

Crazy January Challenge Day 18

On Day 18, I started the 4th of the plaid spiders that will be for the grandchildren for Halloween.  It is an enjoyable mindless stitch. 

So that is 18 starts, 15 of which are complete already.  Somehow I want to continue and start some more.....but we will see.

Crazy January Challenge Day 17

The last of the Gingerbread Houses!!  Now I get to add the charm to each one and them 'finish' them! 

They were all fun to stitch.

Crazy January Challenge Day 15

After all those stitches, I was happy to start something different.  I chose Forest Snowfall by Country Cottage Needleworks.  I got a chunk done, but .... I am not happy with the color of the lettering.  The chart calls for Classic Colorworks Deep Fennel.  It is too 'tealy' for my taste and I think it should be more of a blue.....I have a few colors in mind, so a trip to the LNS to search them out is in order.

Crazy January Challenge Day 14

Last one!  This one is called Byzantine Pieces.  I probably should have used three different fibres instead of two, but it is done.  I have now completed all 12 stitches for my incentive charm.

Crazy January Challenge Day 13

This one is called Paved Bricks.  I rather liked stitching it.
