30 Days of New Starts - Check-in #3

If I have realized anything in the plan to start/work on different things every day for 30 days...I need to plan...plan...PLAN. I am living by a spreadsheet that I have set-up for myself and I made sure not to inset too many large projects as I always want to work on them more that a few hours each night. As for what I have been working on, here we go:

1/8: Cocoa Mug Cross Stitch: This kit is so much fun. Each of the 6 is relatively small and gives a great sense of accomplishment.
Cocoa Mug - Dimensions Kit?
From my stash
1/9: Red and White Ornament: This ornie is one of my go to designs for each year. There are just so many color ways that can be played with that I am always trying something new.
St. Charles - Ink Circles Designs
Scrap of Linen and Floss from my stash
1/10: Purple baby Blanket: The first baby blanket of the year needs to be completed by 2/9 for a work friend who is having her third child. She is so excited because (in her words), "when you are on #3, no one thinks of really doing anything for you." I am glad I can make her happy.

Caron - Simply soft
Basket weave pattern on size 10 needles
1/11: Dish Rag - Block #5 Pinwheel
Pinwheel - Lily's Sugar and Cream Cotton
1/12: Snow Man Ornaments - Ski's - This little guy is from a Herrschners Kit and has a snowman riding on Skis. I made some great progress for only working on it 1 day.

Well, it looks like I am all caught up on my 30 days of projects. I am slightly amazed at what I have been able to accomplish once I put my mind to this endeavor.

Happy Stitching Everyone!

I love all your starts. I know how large projects feel. That's all I have going on right now! I'm dead set against buying anything else, but I'd really like to do something small so I can actually finish it within 10 years! Haha.
