Hello!

Happy Wednesday! Today is the start of a new month, so thought that was a good time to start the blog that I've been thinking about for a while.

Why am I starting a blog? Among other reasons, to have a place to put my plan where my friends can check in on it. What plan? Well....

(Prelude stolen from Tammy, who stole it from Velda who originally stole it from Kell.)With the ladies on Cross Stitch Crazy I'm going to do a project challenge. I will not buy any new cross stitch patterns for my stash until I finish 30 of the ones I already own. I am allowing myself to buy supplies (fabric, fibers, beads, etc) that I need to complete these projects and to collect freebies. I can buy patterns as gifts for others, but not for myself. I have a list of 49 patterns that my 30 projects will come from (list subject to change). My goal is to complete the plan by June 2008. As of yesterday, I have completed 9 pieces.

And now for the list....

Finishes....

1 & 2)Happy Holidays (yes, I did this one twice)
3)Cat in the Flower Bed
4 & 5)Bouquet of Gladiolas by Artecy (one mini, one card size)
6 & 7)Monarch Butterfly by Artecy (one mini, one bookmark)
8)Turtles by Hinezit
