2017 has gone by incredibly fast... especially the past few months
January 1st start
On January 1st most years I do a new start with at least a few friends. Some years there are more of us, and some years just a few.
This year I am starting Dragons of Sumatra from Ink Circles with at least 4 of them (I honestly can't
remember who all is starting)

I plan to stitch it on 32ct white with a Silks4U that I got custom dyed.

Year In Chalk
Something else I am doing is one of the Year in Chalk per month. I had started January in the hopes that I can be a month ahead, get it stitched and finished to display in the month. I think I have talked my good friend Becca to do this with me throughout the year.
I am doing these on 32ct slate from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie with the called for chalk thread from Sampler Threads. I will be using other over dyes for the highlight colours, but I am trying to pull from my stash where possible since they don't use a whole skein.

Another friend, Kathy, has been "bugging" me about my Just Nan critters. I have a TON of them, and they are just sitting in the packages waiting for some love. I have only stitched 2 of them and neither are assembled. I have decided to TRY and do a month as well.

Death By Cross Stitch
Something else I have been DYING to start is Death by Cross Stitch from Long Dog Samplers. Dani and I have decided once we both got our BAP's done we are starting. I have finished my Leaves, and now Dani just has to finish her Big Red. If you want to watch her poppy grow, check our her Instagram account. I'm bbrown426 on Instagram by the way :)
