CJC - day 1

Before I post today's Crazy January Challenge progress, I actually had one more finish yesterday!  It wasn't much of one, though, since all the project needed was cording, but hey... why not list it?  Most of the stitching was done by the UFO RR last year, though, so I can't take credit for all of it.

Here we go!  Dimensions Oriental Butterfly all ready to be framed. :)

And today's CJC piece is Pumpkin Flower Sampler by Bent Creek.  All that's left is a bit more of the vine under the letters, then the big pumpkin at the top.  It's a good thing I saw pictures of this one finished online, or I'd never have started it... the model picture is in serious need of color correction.  It's so orange that the vines look brown instead of green, and you can't really tell that the letters and the specialty stitches are different colors.  Yuck.

So while I'm tempted to finish this up today, I don't feel like stitching until 1am.  Especially with Skyrim calling. :p

Happy new year, everyone! \o/
