The 2012 Challenge

After a great deal of "basket-digging", I think that these 12 projects are going to work quite well for me in 2012. A * indicates that the project is a new one for me.

1. Pocketful of Peppermint-Blue Ribbon Designs
2. The North Wind-Little House Needleworks
3. Dec 2011 JCS magazine-the Blackbird ornament*
4. July Square-Anniversaries of the Heart series from Blackbird Designs
5. December Square-Anniversaries of the Heart series from Blackbird Designs*
6. One square-Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow-Carriage House Samplers
7. A second square-Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow-Carriage House Samplers*
8. Crown Sampler-Plum Street
9-12. 4 stockings Crowning the Tree-Blackbird Designs*

I am anxious to make progress on the two large pieces-Anniversaries of the Heart and Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. One day these will hopefully be finishes but probably not in the upcoming calendar year. I have one square (of 12) completed on C@HRH and 3 (of 14) on Anniversaries of the Heart.

And I will make every effort to post one picture per month starting in January!!!!!


P.S. Did I mention that I have (insanely) joined two other challenges for the year?!!!!!

Our 2012 Challenge

Hey ladies,
Here it is almost 2012.  So dig into those stash boxes and bags and come up with your favorite 12 challenges to stitch for 2012. 
These can either be new starts or UFO's, or knitting and crocheting challenges.  Whatever your little stitching heart desires.  List them here so we can all share and talk about them. We can also post some pictures of our progress.  It will be lots of fun.  We all had a busy year in 2011 and we didn't get to write so much, so let this be another challenge for us.  To keep busy with our stitching and do lots of writing about it too. 
I am off to make my list.  Hope you will all be posting your lists soon.  You have until  December 12th to get them listed, so hurry up.
Love to all, Sharon
