Day Ten already?

Continuing with the challenge........ where were we?  Of course, desperately trying to keep track of some stitching!  Part of me wants to scream "Enough, you daft woman, slow down, you don't HAVE to do this"  and the other half just keeps going, finding the appropriate envelope each day (are you impressed by the organisation?) threading the needle and away we go!  So, without more ado....

Day 6
Stolen Moments
Jane Greenoff

Day 7
Plum Street Samplers
Favorite Fonts Sampler

Day 8

Nancy's Band Sampler
Designed for members of Friendly Stitchers
Ally and I are stitching this on Fridays

Day 9

Eileen Bennett
The Shirt Front Sampler

Day 10
The Primitive Needle
Earth Sampler

Day 11
Jeanette Douglas
A Stitcher's Petit Companion

The Shirt Front sampler has mysteriously turned sideways but you get the idea.  I became a little flaky over the week end so some of the starts are not technically on the correct day but it is January 10th and there are ten starts so just be satisfied, okay?  Please see the Challenge 2012 page for MY rules and any complaints, may I refer you to the management.....oh wait, that's me!

Well, dear hearts, as usual it is late and I am tired so I will love you and leave you.  As always, I adore comments!


  1. As if we would ever argue with da management!
    Hugely impressed with the starts, looking forward to watching them grow.

  2. LOL! Love all your new starts! I'm *positive* that you'll even finish one or two of them!! : )

  3. Lovely new starts all over. Looking forward to see more of each of them

  4. Lovely new starts! And wouldn't dream of arguing with the management! :-)

  5. Very impressive industry. Lovely! (Re your comment on my blog - sorry, feeling very dim, didn't understand it. What photo didn't I post? )

  6. I love all your new starts. They are all really pretty ones. Hmmmm.... I really don't need more enabling right now you know!! Xx

  9. I love cross stitch...I really should dig us some of my ones!!!

  10. I'm so envious of all of your stitchers who can balance so many new projects at once! As a one-project-at-a-time stitcher I can't imagine how you keep them all straight :)

    Looks like you've got some great WIPS, Gillie--will enjoy following your progress!

  11. You've got some fantastic WIPs there Gillie. I don't think I could have so many new starts though!

  12. Well done Gillie - a good start

  13. A fabulous selection of projects, well done on keep up with thm each day, not sure I could have done it, I think the brain would have frazzled lol

  14. Oh...lovely starts, Gillie! Can't wait to see where you'll take us in the next few days. Are you doing 15 or 31? Either way, can't wait to see progress on these, they all look lovely! *Hugs*

  15. I'm impressed with all your new starts, I can't seem to get anything off the ground at the moment.

  16. Great going with all your starts. They're looking good. :D

  17. Woot Woot!!! 23 stitches is 23 stitches and definately constitutes the beginning of another new WIP or 5. You just ignore those voices that try to over-run the joy of new starts with the memories of past challenges 'not yet achieved' or NYA as we love acroymns so much...
    Love the floss you have chosen for your SAL with Ally - am considering if I might fit another band sampler into my list of crazies.... hmmm
