I have pics of my CJC.

I am on a roll. I do my Crazy January Challenge a little different. I take 15 new projects and instead of stitching the first 15 days of January I extend the project for two days. This makes the whole month of January the challenge.

I got off to a good start even though I have not been able to stitch both days on some of these projects. So it might be a good thing that I extend it for two days a project just in case I can't get to to it.

So the 1-2 of January I started Merry Cox's Flower Pin Cushion. This was one of the projects that I only stitched one day on due to us driving back home from Wyoming. I can not stitch in a car. I will definitely make me sick.

On the 3-4 I stitched on Betsy Morgan's This One's for Betty Etui. I just love the colors of this. I can't wait to stitch on this piece a little bit more. I was able to stitch both days on
this project.

The 5-6 was Marcia Brown's Sailor's Accessories. I only got to stitch a little bit on this project. Wish I could have stitched more. Oh well....at least it is a start.

7-8 of January was spent stitching on Merry Cox's Spring Flower Pin Cushion. I only stitched on this one on the 8th. My oldest son swims competitively for Razorback Aquatic Club and he had a swim meet on the 7th. We hosted this meet and when we do...parents have to work if their kid is swimming. So not much stitching done.

9-10 I stitched on Box Cube 1...not much stitching on this one either.

11-12 was the Christmas Pin Cube...I only stitched on this project one day. Running between school, swim practice and the farm...I don't get much time.

This is the pictures so far for this Crazy January Challenge.
I did work on one of my WIP's for the WIPocalypse 2012 challenge that I am also participating in. It is Quaker Needlework Treasures. I hope to have this done in the next week or so.

Thanks for visiting.
Happy stitching.


  1. Thanks for posting pictures. You are really off to a good start. I really like "This One's for Betty" and the pin cubes. Please continue to keep us updated on your progress.

  2. Thanks for the update. Looking forward to more!

  3. Thanks Ladies. I think I will beat my record this year of having more posts than what the last 3 or 4 years. I am hoping to get a lot done this year. The WIPocalypse seems to be helping I think.

  4. I wanted to stop by and thank you for stopping by my blog :) I appreciate it so much :)
    You have some WONDERFUL projects on the go :) I'll be watching for updates :)

  5. Oh, I'm liking all your projects!!! So many Merry Cox pieces -- I love her! And Betsy Morgan too! I have that project, maybe one of these days I'll get to it. lol!
