Challenge Days 10 and 11

Two more days of the Crazy Fifteen Challenge are started and ready to go. I have been stitching as I have been house bound since the ice storm. It was a pretty day today (we had sunshine YAY!) It was still pretty chilly but it did melt a little ice.

Day 10 was Blue Ribbon Designs  Peppermint Twist. I have had this one kitted up for over a year  and originally had planned to join a SAL. I hope I finish by Christmas.

Day 11 is Real Roses by The Drawn Thread. I have had this kit for several years and I won it on Ebay. The kit came with fabric but is not the suggested fabric. I am not sure what it is, but I am thinking of maybe starting it over on something less heavy and bulky. Probably a lighter shade. I have a good bit started but, it is a beautiful design and a lot of work so I want it to look okay. (No, I am definitely happy with it at all.) I am hesitant about even posting the pic. lol

Day 12. I am starting on Fredericka today. She is going to be a fun stitch, I love the colors. The challenge is going to be the border but it looks like it is going to be faster than I thought.

The sun is shining today and more ice is disappearing. It is still a little nippy out there so I am staying in and see how much stitching I can get done.

I love these two designs! The Drawn Thread is gorgeous, and "Peppermint Twist" has been a fave of mine since it came out.
And I love your new blog's so cheerful on this grey, rainy morning!

Great starts! I have Real Roses ready and think that one will be my last day start. I'm a little intimidated by the specialty stitches. Can't wait to see more progress on this one!

Happy stitching...

Good to hear things are thawing out down there for you, Bonnie! I love your new starts--they both look like they would be fun to stitch.
