Day 4 - Debbie's Challenge

Hello beautiful friends! Every morning I am finding it so much fun looking forward to picking out a new start from my box. Oh I should include a photo of my box for you next time.
For today's new start I selected this whimsical design. It's called "Hand Wash" by Thomas Joseph. I crack up when I see the wool sheep hanging to dry - LOL!

 This is a well put together kit. I am very impressed. The chart is wonderfully large and easy to read. Also the list of threads have been nicely coded with corresponding letter as to which to color to stitch. Also nest to the letter they even provided the number DMC thread that is used. Meaning if I decide to stitch this again or run out of thread - I know what color DMC thread to use. LOVE IT!! The only downside I did not care for was that the threads were very neatly organized on hole punched paper. SO what I did was make my own thread holed punched card (used Bristol paper - from my sons stash). Now I won't rip it like I know I would of have if I used the paper the threads came on.  

Today's start and progress. I got a lot stitched today which  I think for one days worth of stitching is pretty good. Thank you for your lovely comments. With my love and appreciation - Annette

Looks like a really cute stitch. I love it when they help sort the colors for you. And give you the information to repeat the pattern if you chose too! Looks like you had a great day of stitching.

Ha, that kit is too cute! I love the sheep on the line...I didn't notice that before...too funny. The colors are gorgeous too :)
You are so inspiring Annette, I love seeing you all keeping Debbie's Challenge going full speed, she must be smiling down at you all...
Your box is great, so perfect, and the Frozen tin too...I love storage boxes (maybe too much) it makes it all so much more enjoyable when you have everything right where it should be and easy to get to.
Can't wait to see the year progress along with your Challenge.
Hugs
