DUCJC 2016 - Day 1 - Frankie Hedgehog

Hello all!

So, here we are, back to stitching madness and the first of 31 new starts which make up Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2016.

For the 1st January we have Frankie Hedgehog:


Frankie Hedgehog
DMC Woodland Folk
Stitched on 16ct Kelp over-dyed aida by Fabric Flair 2 over 1
Stitch count 52 wide by 52 high
Estimated stitching time 14 hours
Stitching time to date - 6 hours 30 minutes


The first stitches went in just a few minutes after midnight - nothing like getting out of the starting blocks quickly! And as there wasn't much else that desperately needed doing I could get away with stitching a lot during the day. What a naughty girl I am!

Back tomorrow.
