Crazy January Challenge 2011 Day #9

Blackbird Designs Mystery Sampler
30ct. R & R Reproductions Highland Mist
Called-for GAST and WDW threads

This is Day #9 of the January Challenge. This is the biggest project I am starting as part of this challenge. It will be a fun one though!

I spent part of today sewing interfacing on the back of some pieces of linen. My ANG group told me a little helpful hint when we ordered the Quaker hornbook. The interfacing helps to keep the over-1 stitches from slipping behind the threads.

After my "problem" start on Give Thanks, I double-checked all my remaining challenge projects and discovered that I have 2 more over-1 charts! So, there might be another change to my line-up. More on that to come.

So far it's beautiful! I have found, as each day passes, that I chose several larger projects. I only hope I am able to complete half of my list, LOL!!!
