My goal was to have this done by the end of January. I don't think that will happen, but it should be finished soon thereafter. Between last night and tonight I stitched a couple of the smaller pieces.
Four more pieces to go.
Stitching friends located in the Northeast...stay warm and stay safe!
I picked up some framing yesterday. A couple of weeks ago I took advantage of some coupons offered by JoAnn's. Finding something to be framed was not a problem; I have a closet full of stitching that needs to be framed.
This was stitched in 2011 as part of the Crazy Challenge. It was one of 15 pieces that I finished that year (actually, I think I only finished 14). Anyway, it was one of my favorite projects!

Now I just need to find the perfect place to hang it.
...but I do have something fun to share with you. There are a couple of gals at work that I have worked with for a number of years. Every year I stitch an ornament for them. One of the gals gave me this coffee mug with pictures of the ornaments on it.
Taking a short break from my Tulip Tray pre-work to get started on one of our guild projects - Sojourner Sampler from Heart's Ease Examplar Workes. Doesn't look like much, but hey, I've got it started!
Check out Theresa Baird's blog for a picture of this beautiful sampler and more information on some of her other designs!
A couple of you have asked about the banding I am using for my Randje per Week project.
It is 28 count linen banding and it is about 6 3/4 inches wide. The edging patterns when posted can be adjusted to fit any width. I purchased my banding at my LNS, Stitchville. I bought the last of the red. They do have some with green and with blue colored edging. The challenging part is finding a piece of banding that is long enough. The Randje blog recommends about 8 feet of banding. The longest piece that Stitchville had was 6 feet. I decided I was okay with that.
I'm sure some of the other larger needlework stores probably also carry banding. If you are thinking about doing this project you may want to check around a bit to see what your options are.
