First Day of the Challenge

And it's not starting very well. I've woken up with a what seems to be either a bad cold or the start of flu, and its effecting my eyes, so for the next couple of days of the start, i can't see me doing many stitches in the pieces.  In a minute i'm going to start today with one of the small cover kits and see how i go.

Right here is my list, in no particular order of starting

1)   Bothy Threads - A Dictionary Of Robins
2)   Bothy Threads - Ladies Who Lunch, Winter Warmer
3)   Bothy Threads - Row Of Christmas Fairies
4)   Cross My Heart - Animal Profiles, Royal White Tiger
5)   Selection of  Small Cover Kits, Bookmarks, Coasters & Keyrings (to numerous to list but will put up photos of each finished one)
6)   Julie Hasler - Chief Red Cloud
7)   Joan Elliot, Design Works - 9802, Dreamcatcher
8)   Butternut Road - Earthdancer
9)   Designer Stitches - Winnie The Pooh, Eeyore's Autumn Leaves
10) Somerset Cottage Crafts - Giraffe & Elephants
11) Jacqueline Reed Acton - Gemini Flowers, Daffodils
12) Jannlynn, Cherished Teddies Around The World - No 139-80, Dutch Girl
13) Jannlynn - No 13 - 244, Northern Lights
14) HAED - Freebie, Legacy Empress
15) Jannlyn - Apache Marriage Blessing (large version)

Well that's the list done, now to get started on some cross stitch lol.

When i told hubby what i was doing as i got the projects sorted, he calmly informed me that there is no way i'd get them finished and not many others will either, so we're out to prove him wrong aren't we :-)

take care
