2012 CrossStitch Crazy Days 2-7 Update

So I have been starting a NEW cross-stitch project each day for the first 15 days of January, but I have been such a slacker in posting progress pics :)  Oh well.  Here are some pics for Days 2-7 (although as I type this it is day 14 - maybe I will get to taking more pics later!)  And I have totally forgotten what I did on each day - so just progress pics I guess!

2 Days worth here - Little Bitty Kitty for January and February

I have really had some fun starting a new project each day - I keep them all kitted in a big bag by my stitchin chair. Although I am stuck now because today I started my 14th project and I was going to goto the cross stitch shop to get some threads for my Day 15 one, but got sidetracked doing some sewing on my sewing machine of scout patches on 9 different uniforms (for 5 hours!) - that might have to count as a Day 15 project!   I am thinking of keeping this rotation going - one project a day!

Thanks for reading,

Day 1 of the Challenge.....completed!

My first finish of 2012 - Drawn Thread Snowman Keep - it is very tiny. About 1 1/2 inches across, and I stitched it over 1 with a mix of DMC, metallic red threads and lots of beads. I finished it by folding up the sides, filling it with a little rice (kids thought that was hysterical) and whip stitching it closed with some of the red metallic thread coming out for tie. I am planning on tying it to my tiny scissors (when I get them back from MOM!) so that I don't keep misplacing my scissors when I stitch). This designer has a whole bunch of small scissor keeps for all seasons, holidays, etc. so I plan on making more - it was fun! 

Now that I am done with day 1 I can get started on my next project for tomorrow :)
