Only one hour's stitching completed on this one. It's a lovely stitch but I think will take longer than I first thought (don't they all?!)
Little Cups of Friendship - Lizzie*Kate
This one only got an hour too. I like how the variegated thread (WDW Begonia) comes out pink/red.
I put my Day 15 start to the vote. Unfortunately the projects I selected got 4 votes each so I went with the smaller of the two. This is February's Primrose by Cottage Garden Samplings. My birthday is in February and I have always loved purples and lilacs so I'm happy with this choice. This one only got an hour too but I managed to stitch two tiny motifs.
So...now the finishing begins! In an effort to save splurging now I am stitching from stash, I've arranged to exchange charts with CJ from Tea n Stitches so I need to get this one finished first so I can send it off to her:
Which is good as it's a nice stitch and shouldn't take too long.
So...here are my stitching plans for 2014!

One last thing I am super excited about is my new SAL! The lovely Jan and I have decided we are going to have Pirate Wednesdays and work on this beauty together...
Bothy Threads Cut Thru Pirate Ship
We both have young sons who will love this project. Jan lives in Tasmania and I am in the UK so in actual fact Jan will be stitching while it is "my" Tuesday and I will be stitching on Jan's Thursday! We also coincidentally decided to start in the same place, with the fighting pirate in the centre. Here's my progress after 3 hours' stitching...
And here's Jan's after a bit less stitching time:
Thanks for all of your comments and support during the first 15 days of the Crazy January Challenge. Good luck to those who are continuing on with new starts every day until the end of January in the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge. I'm just not crazy enough!
Until next time, happy stitching!
