Crazy January Challenge - Day 1

Happy New Year everyone!  Hope it's been good to you so far!  My day was spent visiting with Michael and cooking mostly - but I also made sure to start a new project for the first day of the Crazy January Challenge - one down, fourteen to go!

Not much to see so far - this is a design of mine I haven't actually stitched yet, so it'll be a mystery to all of us if the coloring works or not... so far, I'm worried - I think the shading may be a bit too subtle, but I've got a good ways to go before I'll really know.

It's going to be a pocketwatch image, along with a Dr. Who saying, and I'll post progress at it goes along.  The fabric is 28ct beige linen.

Tomorrow, I've a lot to do - take down the tree and other ornaments, grocery shop, laundry and see Michael off. My Day 2 project will be a WIP (work in progress), and I'm not sure how much I'll get done ... but every stitch crossed is one step farther.


  1. You really never do know how much you'll do in a day. I have those days when I'm crocheting and I get so into it that I forget to have lunch. But I finish a huge project in only a day instead of two weeks. :P

    Can't wait to see how this one turns out! Happy New Year!

  2. Hehe, now I feel like a lazy bum for not working on anything the past week.
