and I have checked it twice--
So here goes for that '2012 Crazy challenge'--
doing 15 counted cross stitch projects--
Here is my pictures--
Actually this last set I am counting as one project--
so that means that a crazy 'Di' is doing a crazy 'challenge'--
and the worst part is---
I have found soooooo many more I want to do up--
this is as 'addictive' as quilting, and knitting--
you can't just 'buy' one and come home and do it--
one needs to keep buying, wishing, buying--
I might just as well have a stash of patterns for cross stitch to go with all the yarn and fabric--
Now for those that don't know what this is--
It is also a 'club' like thingy!!!!
the initials stand for--Take A Stitch on Tuesdays--
and is found here:www.pintangle.com/coummity-challenges2011/12/1/tale-a-stitch-tuesday-2012-challenge-information-page-html
you may still have to click on the button at the top of her page that says--
community challenges to get all the information--
It is a long list of bloggers who are participating in this--
and each Tuesday she will be showing us a new embroidery stitch to practice--
and I have wanted to learn some new stitches for a while now--soooo!!!!
My name and site are in the 'Q' section--way down the page!!!!!!
So you think that with quilting, knitting, counted cross stitch, embroidery, and reading--
that I will stay out of trouble--
your right==No Way!!!!
In fact I have my own Challenge going for this next year--
I have decided to call it the ---
you remember that at the bank you went each week/month and put money in a special savings account for Christmas spending--(do they still do that??)--
well--we will be making and putting away things for next Christmas --
which the calendar tells us we have 12 months to get ready for--but will be here in just a couple months time, it feels like, anyways!!!
You can still commit to this--there will be some prize each month--
and you can pick your own days and times--but must be at least 8 hours a month--that seems fair right!!!
Well--all my packages to send are piled on the floor ready to go to the post office tomorrow, and all the cards that I need to mail are done and stamped ready for tomorrow--
so what did you do today?????
Hugs, Di and miss gracie
