"C" is for Crazy

Yes, "C" is for Crazy and there is none crazier than me when it comes to stitching! I put needle and thread to fabric tonight and started project #13.

Now, if you've been following my recent blog posts or if you have paid any attention whatsoever to my Crazy Challenge list, you are probably scratching your head and wondering if I've totally lost it! "Why?" you might ask. Well, this project was not on my list. But, after a long week at work, a gloomy day laden with snow flurries, and an hour long bumper-to-bumper drive home from work, I decided that I needed a little bit of color to perk up my evening. As luck would have it, I have a few other projects in my stash, as well as enough linen and fiber to start my own needlework store. So what happened??? I changed my mind and added a different project to my list!

So without further ado, here is Crazy Challenge Project #13 - Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers #5 - Blackbird's Winter Delivery! And isn't that R&R Cranberry Bog linen just luscious? The alphabet stitched up quickly.



Tomorrow is the last day of the challenge - since we're in the midst of another mild snowstorm I will be spending most of the day at home and will likely get my last two projects started. Now, you might be wondering -- will they be the last two projects on the list or will they be something entirely different? You'll have to tune back in tomorrow for that answer!

Have a nice weekend!

Oh sweet craziness that made us join this challenge, lol. I'm just as enthusiastic as you are about all the new starts. And like you I also cheated a liittle bit, but why not adjust the rules to our needs?
I've just seen all your starts and WIPs of the last days and they are all gorgeous. Today's BBD project is really special because of this wonderful fabric colour. Must be so much fun to stitch on it. And it's a totally new-to-me chart. Enjoy!

Another lovely start, I really like that red fabric.

Margaret said...

That fabric is delicious! I love that BBD design! Great choice! I definitely think replacing things on your list at the spur of the moment is a good move. lol!

I'm not typically a red person, but that linen is gorgeous! Really nice. I love crows too, so I really like this one that you picked.

Love, love, love it!!!! The linen is FABULOUS in real life - I had wondered if it would be a headachy color IRL, but it's perfect! Great choice. You have such good taste!

Love this pattern. Like you I have changed my mind serveral times and had to amend my Crazy January Challenge list. As a matter of fact I pick a new pattern this morning for #15.

Have a great day stitching.

Blackberry designs are wonderful. I've never stitched any, but I see them here and there on blogs! I love the cranberry fabric too!

Lynn said...

Seeing all the great designs on this challenge is driving me crazy. I want to start them all!!
I'm really enjoying your choices. I have several sitting in my stash and may have to pull them out.
That cranberry linen is a gorgeous colour!

Hi Cathy, you have some great new starts! In fact, seeing your pictures is really tempting me to pull some of the same ones out and crazily start a few myself! ;-) have fun and I will cheer you on the rest of the year as you show off your progress.

Love all your Challenge projects and I like that you aren't afraid to change your mind at the last minute and switch projects. Love red, love that linen! In fact, I think I have an ornament sized piece of it in my stash. Now you have me thinking. Can't wait to see your #15. Happy stitching!
