Crazy January Challenge - Day Fifteen - I DID IT! :D

Well here it is, the final installment of the Crazy January Challenge.

Number fifteen, the third and final Reindeer card which came with Cross Stitcher issue 259.


Hurray!

So a quick round up..

  • First 15 days of January 15 new projects started
  • Of the 15 3 are already complete
  • Leaving me with 12 projects to complete by the end of the year

I think that is pretty doable, most have a fair amount of progress on them and I think these will be great to pick up in between my larger projects when I need a quick fix!


So there you have it, my first attempt at the Crazy January Challenge! I am glad I did it, but also glad it was only with small projects, and I can't complain about three finishes already this year. It just goes to show what I can achieve once I put my mind to it :)

So the question now is, what do I stitch tomorrow?!

I'll let you know as soon as I do! ;)

    1. Thanks Katie, I haven't done any stitching tonight, instead organised my stitching cupboard and pull out my ten turtle trot pieces so I am prepared to get stuck in!

  5. So this is new for me, I don't usually comment without being anonymous.
    Anyway, I love your blog, I started reading it recently and have read every single post up until now.
    I absolutely LOVE your projects and wish I could afford to buy cross stitch magazines.
    Fortunately for you, you have relatively small ones to finish ^.^
    Keep up the amazing work!

  20. Great way to show your challenge with a mosaic! Well done :)
    And some are already finish :) I'm sure there will be more progress on your wips very soon! Have fun :D

  21. Well done, 3 finished already. And even if you focus on WIPs you still can use the smalle ones in between. How do you do the mosaic, if you don't mind me asking. I spend a lot of time trying to put pictures side by side and playing with the code but this seems way more difficult.
