I can't believe it is the 16th day of the new year and I have yet to put a single stitch in the projects I have decided to stitch in the new year. I have everything ready to go...I just can't seem to bring myself to start one of them. Crazy right?
I decided not to do the Crazy January Challenge again since I still have 5 projects lingering from last year. ( Yeah for getting 10 finished!) And yes....I will get these finished this year!
I decided that since the world didn't end on 12/21/12, I better take advantage of my time left so these moved to the front of the line.
By The Bay "13th Colony Bay"
I am stitching these as one design on 40ct Lakeside Linen w/ DMC.
I have loved this since the first time I saw it years ago
and I am really excited about this one.
Dames of the Needlwork "Ode to Mary Needleroll"
This beauty will be stitched on 40ct. Jamaica Sunset
I feel in love with this design that I found at Counted Stitches' Going Out of Business Sale this last Spring. The design is such a wonderful nautical piece with a mermaid and I want to hang it so I will be stitching it for framing. There is a lot of over 1 in this design and I "plan" to stitch it all over 2 so it will mean a lot "thinking" on my part but I think I can do it.
Prairie Schooler "ABC's"
This will be stitched on 40ct. WDW Linen w/ DMC.
I am not a big PS fan, but couldn't resist after seeing many of you stitching these the last few years. I decided to jump on the bandwagon and stitch these as one large piece.
Rosewood Manor "Old Glory"
I'm using 40ct PTP Sand w/ Victorian Motto
This is another one I instantly wanted to stitch last year
when it was released and so I added this on to the list.
Hopefully I can get this one done this year.

I have been stitching on exchange items so no pics to share. I have also been crafting and I wanted to share a recent project.
I found these paper mache pears in the clearance bin at Michaels and decided they were worth the 25 cent they were asking. With a little bit of paint, and Briwax, I turned them into these:
We found this bowl in Texas in December and I just knew it
would be the perfect home for them.
