DEBBIE'S SUPER DUPER ULTIMATE CRAZY JANUARY FEBRUARY CHALLENGE 2015


Here are the 59 projects for this Challenge. They're mostly "cuties" of cats, dogs, mice and teddies taken from various magazines, so if you don't like these types of charts then this page is not for you! I have also included chart and stitching information for the unfinished pieces.
