December Progress on DSDUCJFC 2015 Pieces

Good morning all!

Last post of 2016!

During November, I hardly stitched on my Challenge pieces so aimed to rectify that in December. After I had finished my LK Stamp for the month and a couple of small Christmas pieces I dove straight into my Challenge pieces and as well as finishing one piece, April Showers, made the following progress:

Friends For Life from 1st January
finished the clouds and stitched a little of the dog

Little Black Cat Tea from 23rd February
finished all but the background stitching

Little Black Cat Sugar from 16th February
stitched the cat (minus eyes) and continued with the sugar

Winter from 22nd February
finished the tree and stitched down to the horizon

I had intended to stitch on more pieces, but once I'd picked up April Showers I couldn't put it down so that took up most of my time.

I don't expect many of my remaining 43 Challenge pieces from 2015 will see much daylight in 2016, given that I will be starting another 31, but I really hope that's not the case. I still love and want to finish each and every one of them. I suppose I'll have to see where my mood takes me!

Tomorrow I'll be posting my stitching plans for 2016 - another long and boring post - then there will be daily posts from 2nd January with my 31 new starts. Hope you don't get bored of me!!

Keep stitching!
