Yeah! Timeless Tomato is finished! I managed to fit in my initials in one of the designs. Next this goes to my finisher, Kathy.
She finished this one that I saw at the Goldbar retreat. Isn't it beautiful?
I gave in and signed up for the 2012 Crazy January Challenge. I learned some lessons from participating in the 2011 Crazy January Challenge. Like don't choose more than 15 projects (the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge would not work for me) and be careful how many large projects to include.

Some of the projects chosen this year were passed over last year, so they are getting a second chance.
Also for 2012, I have signed up for Kimono Revisited with the Shining Needle Society.
And I am doing Holiday Patches by Susan Kerndt with my local ANG guild. See below-
Even though I've already stitched this mini sampler (Florentine Holiday) by Susan Kerndt-
Do you think I'm overdoing things for 2012? :)
I will do another post to look back at my stitching in 2011.
Have a Happy New Year!
