not sewing or quilting thread--
but all kinds of counted cross stitch embroidery threads!!!
No--I was not bored--
In stead this crazy 'Di' person--
joined another challenge group--
this one is even named right toooooooo!!!!
It is called--CrazyJanuary2012 challenge!!!
and it involves this--
Doing counted cross stitching--
see the plan is for you to pick '15'--yep I said, "15" projects--
and get all the supplies ready for the first of January--
then starting the first of Jan. until the 15th of Jan--
you actually start each of the 15 projects--one each day--
and then the good news is----
you have all the rest of the year to finish these 'ufo's' in waiting!!!
Well--picking out 15 wasn't tooo hard--and I did have lots to pick from--
then it was going through them all to see if I have all the threads, and the right sized cloth for each one!!!
Well--I have alot of threa---
so I did this for alot of them--
I made up cards for each line I have--
then listed each color on a card by the 'abc' system--
this way all I have to do is check the cards to see if I have the color!!!
Then I went a step futher--
but first here is my basket of the projects--
some are seasonal, some are small, some are large--all are work!!!!!Today I spend pretty much the whole day in doing up the cards you see sticking up from one of the projects--
all the floss for each project is on cards now and the fabric is with the pattern, too--
so I am nearly all set to go--
did have to do two different orders to finish off colors==
and Of course I had to get two more new patterns to do!!!!
On Tuesday, Miss Gracie got to go for a ride---
for her check up and a rabies shot at the Vets--
to say she was not happy about it --is putting it mildly--
but she survived and she still 'loves' me--so all is ok now--
and she weighted in at 13.5 lbs--!!!!!
Got the last set of hats and mittens made for this year's Santa give away for the 0-2 year olds--
and all of those items have been delivered--so now on to next years!!!!!
I got mail today--
Now remember I did not do any shopping on Black Friday or that week end--
but 'really' some of these fabric shops just kept emailing me--
with all kinds of great bargains--
and I really do love "bargains"--don't you????
So I decided to think 'spring' and got this fat quarter set--
Now there is some 'spring'!!!!
then these two charm packs hopped into the cart--
and I am soooo excited--
for Valentines this year we are back to red and pink and white--
now we are talking!!!!!!
one 'cute' piece--
Wonder why 'Di' bought this one?????
and two more patterns--
So what do you 'think'--
think Di will be really busy in 2012--
wonder if it will keep her out of trouble????
Hugs, from Crazy 'Di' and a Silly cat!!!!
