Well, I've done it! I've completed Debbie's Super Duper Ultimate Crazy January February Challenge 2015. This is the chart I finished off with and it just happens to also be the largest of my 59 starts.
Stitched on 16ct Kelp over-dyed Aida by Fabric Flair 2 over 1
I must say I have enjoyed every single day and every single one of my new starts. There's not one that I won't look forward to returning to, which is good.
I definitely have my favourites starts - Dreaming of Dolphins tops the list followed by the Elemental Dragons and the Lickle Teds from January and the Four Seasons, Little Black Cats and Pretty Little Cities from February. All the others aren't that far behind though! I don't know in which order they'll reappear as I'll just stitch whatever theme or colours take my fancy at the time.
I agree that I have been mad to start 59 new projects, but none of them will go to waste. I don't intend any of them to become discarded UFOs sitting in a box collecting dust. Afterall, I need to whittle them down before starting another 15/31/59 next year!!!!
I want to thank all of you who have stayed with me throughout this adventure, especially those who have commented daily (Justine, Katie, Linda, Mii) I really appreciate the time that you have taken to do that. This Challenge has meant more to me than just starting project after project knowing that I've got support out there, even if it is accompanied by being called bonkers, crazy, insane or certifiable in the process! Thanks - I think!
More importantly, I did it all in Debbie's memory and hope she would have smiled at my achievements. I only knew her for about a month before her passing but even so her love of stitching and serial starting obviously infected me - badly!
I am now giving myself a well-earned posting holiday. I shall still be reading and commenting on blogs but it may be a while before I post again. And who knows what that post will be about - progress on a BAP or perhaps a finish (or two!) but DEFINITELY NOT a new start (although there should be a rather large restart if all goes well!) :)
Happy stitching and cheerio for a while.
