Thrilling Thirty!

I can't believe I managed it, however, just a bit ago I managed to finish stitching the 30th project out of the Bin O'Shame.  The journey began Tuesday, February 24, 2015 and officially ended Saturday, July 25, 2015 with the finish of the flag that was stitched for my beloved father. I added 5 more projects on just to see fi I could finish them before the end of the year. The official goal of 25 having been met a mere 5 months after I started was none too shabby a showing. I figured 5 more could conceivably be finished in the remaining months and I am so happy that I was able to achieve that goal with this latest finish. 

Well, on with the show! :)

Design: Mandy Cat In Witches' Hat

Designer: Eileen Gurdak of Handblessings

Fabric Used: 40 count Newcastle linen in Crystal Meditation by Picture This Plus
