Days 27 - 31

Hi Blogger Friends.  I made it.  I started a new project every day in January. 

I kinda think that I'm sorta not going to start quite as many as last year.  (100 last year only 95 this year)  Just kidding.  This is what I am going to do (hopefully).  When I finish two pieces, I get to start a new one.  However, there is an exception to the rule.  For example - I finished the santa ornament so when I finish one more I can start a new one.  Except the next monthly ornament doesn't count as my new start because I have to start one anyway.  Same goes for any of the pieces that are in a series.  Another example, lets say I finish santas house, I will start the next one in the series.  But, thats 2 finishes so I get to start something that isn't in a series.  Geez I'm rambling.  Hope it makes sense.
Okay, my last five starts.

Day 27 - Christmas Ark - Prairie Schooler

Day 28 - Monthly Flip-It with Charm (July) - Lizzie Kate

Day 29 - Star Welcome - Imaginating - Diane Arthurs

Day 30 - Tropical Christmas - Imaginating - Diane Arthurs

Day 31 - Santa's Village (Santa's House) - Country Cottage Needleworks  (I am stitching 4 on one piece of fabric)





I also managed to work on my Halloween House SAL.  I did the boards in the windows on the left and right.


I really really need to finish something really really quick because I just got a new chart that I really really want to start.
 Paradise Banner - Cross Stitch Pattern

Thanks for looking.  Linda

This post just sort of makes me laugh. I'm basically a two-at-a time kind of gal...it would drive me crazy to have so many starts.

But, nice stitching!

Tama said...

ooo, nice new starts! I like all the beach stuff!
I'm going to try and stick to the finish two, start one AFTER I get my Guardian Angel started :D My only exception's going to be starting a new project on my birthday. It's my gift to myself :D

Nicola said...

Great new starts and the agreement with yourself about finishing and new starts sounds like a good plan ;)

Mii Stitch said...

Great new starts! Congrats for keeping up with everything in January :)

Anna van Schurman said...

So is your goal to be the woman with the most starts? Or do you have a raging case of startitis? Or are you just trying to get all your patterns done? I need answers! LOL

Lumiruusu said...

I like all the patterns you have choosed and you have been busy to start all of them.Well Done !

I have participated the Crazy january Challenge two times and I am happy that I did then then the work of kitting many projects.
Now I can enjoy just the fun and stitch them when ever I want :)

Some of the WIPS I have finished some are still on my pile of WIPs..
This should be all just for fun so enjoy the stitching or starting new patterns :) :)

Carol said...

Congratulations, Linda!! Looking forward to watching each and every one grow :)

SoCal Debbie said...

Great job, Linda! I totally understand your plan to finish 2, start 1. But series don't count and the ornament a month doesn't count, so you can start those any time. I wonder what your second finish will be, then you can start the Paradise Banner! Whoo hoo!!

Faith... said...

Love all your new starts Linda, good luck with your new plan for new starts. Hope you are able to do that!

Lovely new starts. It's so great to have all these started projects, there's always a lot of choice and you can stitch to your heart's content on many different pieces. I will also start my personal Crazy Challenge this month and my BAP Challenge in August. I'm already looking forward to it.
