DAY 31--

Well--we are nearly done with the first month of 2012--
can you believe it????
I have to say that for the first month--
I have been on a 'wild' ride--
with doing all the Counted cross stitch starts--
Here is the latest one--
Surprise--- It is a Santa ornament for the monthly Christmas Challenge--
Just decided '2' days ago to join--
and then I had to go hunting for a pattern in my stash--
Found this chart and it helped guide me==
but I did alot of my 'own' things to Santa--
I mean he has to have 'white' fur on his coat==
not green!!!!!
I also have some total finishes--

Here is the January Words project--
I did use a larger count fabric and did change out some colors--
just love how this turned out!!
the lamb one--like this one too--
And the here bunny one--
thought I had some bunny fabric==
but it was all 'chicks'--sooooo--
I used it--
and here is a look at the tiny bunny button!!!!

This one is a finish as far as the cross stitching goes--
but have not decided if I want to frame it or make it into a pillow--
there is a series of 4 of these--so would need a frame that will look good with each of them--
I have no room to put each in it's own frame!!!!

And I still have 12 other starts to finish and one ufo!!!
and I need a metal==I have never done cross stitch for 31 days straight and to have finished basically "5" projects--welllllll!!!!!!
