I started what should be the fifth of my Crazy January starts. Crazy Love by Cross Eyed Cricket. I'm stitching with the called for threads on a piece of 32 count star sapphire linen. The letters are all stitched with Thread Gatherer's Silk 'n Colors. Love.
But here's the thing. I kind of feel like the ornaments don't count. So today I'm starting Boris by Plum Street Samplers. And that will be my five January starts. Then after my three days with Boris, I will move on to three days on a WIP. I'll have eleven days (roughly four rotation slots) to work on Star Light Star Bright, Home Sweet Home, That Dern Parrot, and...we'll see what moves me in nine days.
But I do have two more starts I want to make this year. Samsarah's Shining Star (Through the years we all will be together if the fates allow...). I'm still waiting for the fabric to come in. And Blackbird's Joyeux Noel. One of my father's sisters--the good one--asked me to make her something she could take out every Christmas. So I am doing that one. I love the cardinal; it's done in silk; I think it will be enjoyable to stitch. So not a real obligation. You know how you can tell, right?
