Progress at the speed of snails!

Picture Heavy Post ahead....
So this is my progress report for my Crazy January challenge. I only took pics of my 6 bigger projects that I have been rotating regularly. I apparently need to take progress pictures more often, because it looks like I have done alot but really to me it feels like each is going so slow because i'm working on so many.

First up is Diane Arthurs "Give Thanks", probably the closest one to being done. I love the colors of this one and can't wait to have it out & displayed with my fall decor.

Next is Prairie Moon "Thine is the Trick and the Treat". A little tedious with just the black, but I like finishing each little section. The chart is 6 pages long, and I am almost done with page 1.



This is Lizzie Kate "Halloween Rules". Wow it looks like I have gotten a bunch done on this one. I have promised myself not to buy the next 3 charts until I finish the first 3. So that is keeping me motivated. Plus I think it's so cute. Does it prove how randomly I stitch that my ghost has a teletubbie belly?

Bent Creek "Home" probably in second place to be finished.


This is "Golden Apples" by Mirabilia. I got a lot done on this one too, and like just using simple plain old DMC on it. I am stitching her face/skin over one, something new for me and not sure if I love it yet or not but wanted to try it. The linen I am using for it (came with the kit) feels like burlap though, it is so stiff and has not softened up at all as I have been working with it. It is a pretty color (Milk Chocolate I think) and not that hard to stitch on, just scratchy.

working with a rotation causes slow down on each project, but in the end you'll have more pieces done, right?:-) I think you made a real good progress!

Be very careful and always compare with the picture when you stitch "Thine is the Trick and the Treat". There are lots of mistakes on the pattern!!! But it will look great when you are done. :)
