Day 1 - DSDUCJFC

Happy New Year beautiful stitching friends! The initial's in my title stand for "Debbie's Super Duper Ultimate Crazy January/February Challenge 2015".  This is honoring our late stitching friend Debbie!
I have planned 15 new starts. Not the 31 or 58 projects like Linda or Sharon are so bravely doing.
I want to be able to keep up and not fall behind. The SAL started yesterday Jan 1st.
  
So here is my first new start and I was able to finish...
"Chicks" by Lizzie Kate
It was a limited edition kit  purchased last year.

I have to say I found myself looking forward to starting this challenge. The fabric came with the chart and there are two little beads that I didn't attach yet. I held off till until I am ready to complete this as a small pillow tuck & for ironing. No melted beads for me - LOL! This was a fun piece to stitch with the spring colors. With my love and appreciation - Annette

That must be the first start and finish of 2015! It's so cute. I'm only doing 15 new starts too. It's enough for me. Look forward to seeing what else you choose.

Very pretty start. Happy New Year.

Jackie said...

Look at you! A finish already! I love the fabric and think it's particularly suited to spring/Easter type designs.

15 new starts sounds like a lot to me! I know you'll finish them up though.

Awww...what a sweet little finish. Love the fabric too. I have a whole metre of this but never know what to use it on. Maybe I should experiment a bit.

Ruth said...

Oh Annette, what a great start of this SAL you had. This is a very cute little piece, and already finished.
I will also be joining this SAL but can't join the group on FB as I'm not on FB. But I will do it my own way and at my own pace.
