59 Down, One To Go

I figured that since it is around 2 weeks until my next overnight shift, I had better get moving on this project. I didn't want to be looking at a project that had been hanging around for a month. This is how the Bin O'Shame came into being. So, I got this one out and just hammered it out until it was finished. I am seriously considering starting the January one, Let It Snow, but I am not sure as of yet. There are two other projects competing for my attention. So, as always, we will see who wins the battle for my attention and my needle. :)

Design: hd-30 February: a year in chalk

Designer: Cathy Habermann of Hands on Designs

Fabric Used: 30 count Ink Spot Black by R and R Reproductions (possibly discontinued)

Fibers Used: The Gentle Art Sampler Threads in Chalk. Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Prickly Pear.

Accouterments: Toho 11/0 glass seed beads in 1951-126 Rainbow Fuchsia 

Stitcher's Notes: Substituted Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Prickly Pear for the called for Tea Rose. Substituted the called for 30 count Weeks Dye Works Gunmetal for the Ink Spot Black by R and R Reproductions in stash. 

Began Thursday, November 19, 2015:

Finished Saturday, December 5, 2015:

I am actually wanting to see if I cannot squeeze in one last project. If I can, this will mean 60 finishes for the year. This total includes 35 finished up from the Bin O'Shame and 25 fresh from scratch starts. The previous record year for finishing was in 2010 with 49. Having 60 would beat that total by 11. Not too shabby if I say so myself. :)

Well, I had best be off. I need to clean up my area and find something else to get into. I hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)


Respectfully submitted,

I should say if it ends 59 or 60 that it is TOTALLY not a shabby and considering that you have finished 35 from the bin. You deserve a medal!
