Good bye 2014 and Hello 2015!
I had signed up for Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015 (DUCJC2015 on Facebook. I did not make a list. I have so much stash I want to do, I am just taking a pattern or an WIP or UFO a day from my stash and working on it. I hope I can do it. With schoolwork and final exams coming in a couple weeks, my stitching will be very minimal, until Jan 16. The idea is to stitch on something different every day in January, whether it will be a new pattern or a wip or ufo.
I joined Mel's Stitching from Stash again. I was doing good on it the first 6 months or so last year and then I went berserk and went off the budget. I am back on it and with school, it should be easier. My mind will be on school until I graduate in July. However, I did spend this month but less than $10.
I joined the YOTA SAL too from Pull the Other Thread. You work on a UFO and mention it on the first Saturday of the month, except for this month, it is on the 10th. So I will be back on next week. I do have a few UFOs I want to work on, and I am sure I will find one before Saturday to work on one.
For Day 1 on DUCJC2015, I worked on Nora Corbett's Azure. Last month I got her partner, Verde and the matching fabric. Still waiting for the fabric but it will be here shortly. I worked on Azure's arms and will be going back and finish her this year.
On Day 2, I worked on Lizzie Kate's ABCs Lessons. I am going to finish this one this year too. It has been an UFO far too long. I finish stitching the last line and some letters. Today I am starting something new which I will post by the end of the week.
On the week before Christmas, I got the most wonderful gift from a Secret Santa. I saw this being sold on Facebook and asked the seller I will buy the kit after the New Year if no one buys it. I was so surprised when I opened the envelope. Shelley from California send it to me as a surprise. I will be starting it this month. Thank you so much Shelley! It will have a special place on my wall.
Here is few pictures of me at Christmas or around Christmas.
Thank you for visiting me and I am sorry for the long absence. I will try to post more after January. I will be my January Stitching at least once a week, and maybe more if I find time in the week.
Until next week my friends,
