I hope everyone is having a great start to their New Year. Mine started with getting ready for work this morning, stepping out of the shower after washing my hair, and having all the power go off. So today, all day long at work, I have looked like I was out way too late partying. When the truth of it is I was sound asleep long before any balls dropped or fireworks went off. Sigh, hopefully this isn't indicative of the rest of my year.
So I have started a new challenge. Something I have never participated in before. I joined the Crazy January Challenge 2012 Yahoo group. I know, like I need to start anymore projects. I was surprised (well not really) at how easy it was to pick out all the charts I wanted to start. Here is my list, modeled by my elderly black lab.
And here is my first new start of the new year. This is the brand new just released Mirabilia chart "Golden Apples". I have stitched 2 other Mirabilias over the years (Halloween fairy/Shakespeares fairies) but never finished either. Not for lack of enthusiasm for either chart, maybe for lack of skill/patience. You may notice on my list I have 2 Mirabilia's planned to start. Finger's crossed at least one of them gets finished.
Remember last year when I asked everyone what stitching the face "over one" meant on a Mirabilia? Well I am going to be brave and try it on both. I figure it's a small-ish area and DMC thread, so what have I got to lose?
