Crazy January Challenge - Day two!

Good evening!

Well it was back to work today and all the decorations at work were taken down, which always makes me a little sad...the ones at home will come down at the weekend.

Once home from work I picked my second project for the Crazy January Challenge, tonight it was the Vintage Rose Keyring Kit which came free with Cross Stitcher issue 264.



A nice amount of progress tonight with only the background to do! I did mess the two darkest shades of pink up a little, but I guess mine will just be unique instead :P

Until tomorrow, happy stitching! :)

  3. I love the keyring - I am not able to get the magazine here in Poland, but I will try and find a way next month for the next keyring - that would be amazing to stitch.

  4. It's looking lovely. The pinks were pretty hard to distinguish in that kit. They have another wooden keyring next month

  5. Your second start doesn't need a lot more to stitch. You're having a great start on the Crazy Challenge.
