    The thought of the 15 Challenge makes me break out in hives!!! I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's posts regarding it.

  4. I love your list for the January 15 Challenge. I have a list that still needs to be edited down a bit. I think it's going to be fun and a great way to get new things started for the New Year!

  17. I totally love your La D Da and the colors too.

  18. Great projects!!!! I think I have all the samplers on your list :-).

  19. Wow Karen, you're really moving along! I didn't have any progress this week. :(

    Too busy with work and kids coming home for the holidays and so on. Maybe next week?

    Anyway, it's looking beautiful!

  20. What a great list!! I think I've either stitched some of them, put some on my list, or considered the rest. Great minds think alike. ;)

    Fantastic progress on your La D Da piece!

  21. Good luck! I thought about participating, but I do not like to have more than one project going at a time, and I am working on a gift for someone, that needs to be finished before JUNE! So I wish you all the best!

  22. Your picks sound great! :D

    Beautiful stitching you've been getting up to lately. :D
