More of the Crazy Challenge and a finish!

I have some updates for my Crazy Challenge.
Day 9 - Quaker Silence by Tree of Life Samplings. I haven't gotten too far yet, but will be picking it up real soon to get moving on it. I switched out the threads to Crescent Colours cottons and really liking it so far and using the 40ct fabric listed.


Day 10 - Love Photobooth by Bent Creek. I just started this one the other night so it has been added to my list and one of them has dropped off. This is being stitched on the fabric included and i changed up the colors just a little. LOL


Day 11 - Eek Boo Hiss by Lizzie Kate. I am stitching this one on 32ct tobacco over 1. I will be doing all three on this one piece and making a cube out of them.

Day 12 - Five Fine Roosters by La D Da. I just started this one today. I am stitching it on 40ct over 2 with the DMC listed.

Day 13 - Thine is the Trick or Treat by Prairie Moon. I started this one last weekend when i was away at a retreat. I couldn't put this one down for quite awhile and almost have page 1 of 6 done. This is going to be a really fun piece to stitch up.

Day 14 - Hearts on canvas. This is my first piece of needlepoint. I decided to go with a pattern and blank canvas.

I am just starting up on Day 15 Quaker Garden by BBD and will post a pic this week.
I did manage to finish up I Will Stitch YOu in my Heart while at the retreat and America by Glory Bee. I left off the border on America as i am going to make this one into a little pillow.
