Crazy Challenge Finish #11

Yes, another crazy challenge piece finished! One of my friends asked me earlier this week, "Did you ever think you would finish as many pieces as you have?" My answer was, "No!" When I started this challenge in January, I did it to have fun and I really didn't expect to finish as many projects as I have. There are always new projects that peak my interest and get in the way of finishing those projects that are already started. Can you relate to that? Well, I know for certain that I won't finish all 15 and maybe this is the last one that I will finish, but I have had fun. I really need to get busy now and stitch up some ornaments for the holidays!

Without further ado, here is Crazy Challenge Finish #11!
