CJC 2016 #1



Hello Peeps!


The Crazy January Challenge 2016 has started.

I have decided to join the fun this year,
for the first 15 days.

Most of my starts will be smalls as
I want to make sure I finish them all before the end of the year.

oOo

CJC #1

Tea For Two - Tea Crazy collection




Stitched on Sew It All 16ct aida fabric,
Tumbleweed colour

2 over 2 using DMC threads




That was fun!
A lot got done but all I did was stitch!

Unfortunately, progress will go slowly as the holiday is now over

Toodles,
Mii

  39. I love this design :D Yes small projects for the challenge. I have included gifts for the teachers end of year gifts, that way I do end up with some finishes plus handmade gifts instead of spending a fortune buying for 4 teachers and numerous teaching assistants! lol
