Crazy January Challenge - Day 5...a Finish!


So the weekend is coming to an end, all the children are back at school tomorrow around here meaning all the parents will be back to work too. I guess Christmas really is over for another year!

Today it was the turn of the Breast Cancer Bunting kit which came free with Cross Stitch Crazy issue 181. This was a fun stitch with three individual motifs to stitch up, and today I managed all three! Hooray!

First there was the flower...

Followed by the bird...

And finally, I think my favourite of the three the butterfly!

These cute little designs cheered me up, and got me looking forward to spring and more than a few hours of daylight again! Here they are all finished up as bunting. I have my Christmas bunting I made in 2012, perhaps I should look out for some more and get one for every season?!

So there you have it, my first finish of the Challenge, and also of 2014! Not bad going!

Untill tomorrow!
