Crazy January Challenge Day 14

Hi all

Here's my 14th start, started January 14th.

Jeanette Douglas Designs - Spring Stitches
36ct sand edinburgh linen
accessory pack - gloriana, NPI & kreinik silk mori

This is the 3rd in the series, after this I have Summer Stitches to go. As I'm stitching all 4 on the same piece of fabric I've included a pic of where Spring fits in :).

Had an almost disaster while stitching this which is why there isn't more progress. I spilt my cup of coffee and a bit splashed on this project. Luckily none got on the stitched parts so I will be able to rinse the small part of the fabric carefully. Unfortunately the chart didn't fare quite as well and ended up with a bit of a soaking!! It has come out ok as it was cleaned up pretty quick but the chart is no longer in the best shape!

Well I have a wedding to attend in a couple of hours, my DH is the best man. It should be a lot of fun as it's the 2nd wedding for both parties and as the bride has small children, they have hired a jumping castle and there will be a pool for the kids to swim in! I'm hoping I'll still be able to meet my goal and start the 15th and final project this evening when I get home, if not I'll start it tomorrow instead.

Thanks for looking
Happy Stitching
Amanda

These small Jeannette Douglas designs are such a fun stitch with all their special stitches. I like that you are stitching them on one piece of fabric. They will look awesome!!!
