Crazy January Challenge Day 10

Here is yesterday's start:

And here's what it will look like when it's finished:

Cute right?  I was lucky enough to win this chart in a giveaway from Heather and knew I was going to stitch it as soon as possible.  I ordered the recommended fabric (30 count Red Pear Permin linen) as I liked it so much.

I've had a bit of a rethink on the last few CJC projects as I really didn't want to stitch more than one Dimensions this year.  Check out my revised page and see what you think.  I am torn between these two for the final project:

Beach Hut Fun by Bothy Threads 

February's Primrose by Cottage Garden Samplings

Both lovely in their own ways.  Any thoughts?  I'm not clever enough to set up a vote in my sidebar as I have seen others do, but if you leave a comment on this post whichever one has the most votes by the 15th is the winner!

My dear friend is 40 today and hubby and I have a real treat - our second night in 5 years away from the children!  We are staying at a hotel not far away but far enough that I would have had to drive us home from my friend's 40th party tonight.  I'm very excited and so are the boys.  Grandma and Little Grandad are going to stay over tonight.  I am going to have to get my stitching in early today!

I am determined not to drink too much tonight as I don't want to be ill tomorrow - but we shall see!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Great start love the bright fabric. Since I love bright colors and fun pieces I vote for Beach Hut Fun.

Have a great time. Adult time is so important. Enjoy it!

Cute new start Justine and I love the color of the fabric. Have fun tonight.

I vote for Beach Hut Fun. Looks like it will be a fun stitch.

Aww the ladybird is so sweet! :)

The beach huts get my vote - they are on my ever expanding "one day" list!

Have fun tonight, and don't have too much wine ;) hehe xx

Enjoy your special time away from home. I am stitching the Cottage Garden series and really enjoying it.

Cute chart and love the shade of the fabric you are using. Bothy Threads are not quick to finish so I'd choose February Primrose. Have fun!

Super little ladybird.
I'm loving the beach huts charts, but then again I am partial to sitting on the beach admiring them!
