Crazy January 2011 Challenge, Cross Stitch

Crazy January 2011 Challenge

Yep, I’ve decided to throw my hat into the ring and complete the Crazy January 2011 Challenge, as started by Minna.  I’ve chosen designs that are a reasonable mix of designers and stitching styles, and also of medium size so that the challenge is do-able.  I’m hoping that these projects will also still allow me the flexibility and time to work on some existing WIPs at the same time, plus at least one Christmas ornament a month, as that’s another challenge I’m picking up again next year.

Anyway, without any more waffling, here are the current choices for my 15 projects for January – I can’t say with 100% certainty that one or two won’t change before January 1st, but I’m relatively happy with this list so far.  And here they are:

1. Waxing Moon Designs – Halloween Short Stack
2. The Goode Huswife – With My Needle (modified, without the wording)
3. From Nancy’s Needle – Lavender Blue Celtic Knot Quilt (canvaswork)
4. The Victoria Sampler – Crimson Fire Sampler
5. Little House Needleworks – Ladybug, Ladybug
6. Dimensions kit – Tiger Reflections
7. Judy Odell – My Treasures Workstation
8. Bent Creek – Winter Snapperland
9. JBW Designs – Autumn Harvest
10. DMC – Baby Lorikeets
11. The Prairie Schooler – When Witches Go Riding
12. Just Nan – Trick or Treat Box
13. Shepherd’s Bush – Happy Pumpkin Needle Roll
14. Shepherd’s Bush – Baby Bug Ball
15. Forget-Me-Nots in Stitches – Raphael’s Raspberries

On the short list are also the following that I’ve love to complete sooner rather than later:

  • Rosewood Manor – Quaker Diamonds
  • JBW Designs – English Plum Pudding
  • Lizzie*Kate – Needle Nick
  • Linda Barry – Elizabethan Treasures
  • Northern Pine Designs – Ebb Tide
  • Forget-Me-Nots in Stitches – Golden Garden Sweet Bag
  • Fancy Work – Lavender Rose Sewing Case

  1. You have a nice selection there…….. the only one of those I have done is “Ladybug, Ladybug” and it is lovely in real life. One of these days I want to do the Raspberries and With My Needle as well.
