Finally … the final day of the Crazy January Challenge – Starts!
For day 15 I have selected a pattern from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Issue by Raise the Roof Designs called ~ Nickademus. I really don’t know the reason behind the name but it is a simply darling pattern of a Sock Monkey holding a big red heart. The pattern calls for small button mittens to be stitched on the hands. I am stitching him on 14 Ct. baby blue Aida with the called for DMC threads.
Here is a snap of the days progress. I really got a lot done.
I am stitching a pair of them for a group I am in that is called The Stitching Corp. It is a group of stitchers that make pairs of Christmas Ornaments each year and the coordinator, Tina mails one of them to a Military Service Member that is deployed and the matching one to his or her family. Having a son in the Army makes this project something close to my heart.
Now to decide how I want to rotate all these 15 projects in and out to get them finished!
