As you know, my stitching buddies and I love to think about what we are going to stitch as much as we love to stitch and buy stash. We plan a start for the new year, sometimes a summer project, fall project, winter project, etc.
The Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics from London will be televised this coming Friday. I am so excited. Mike and I are planning on sitting in front of the TV Friday night and most of Saturday to kick off the Olympics.
My stitching buddies and I will keep in touch during this great TV-fest by stitching Olympic projects! The idea is that you start the project during the opening ceremonies and have it finished by the closing ceremonies!!! Isn't that fun?? I bet you will want to think about what is in your stash and what you can start on Friday? Right?
I still have not come to a decision! It could be Hilda's Alphabet Brew by With Thy Needle and Thread.
Or it could be The Town of Halloween by The Primitive Hare. It is found in the Just Cross Stitch Halloween 2012 magazine and you can see it on the cover below. I could not find a great picture of the piece all by itself on the internet, but I bet most of you are familiar with this magazine and the design itself because it is fabulous.
It is kind of strange of me to pick a Halloween design because I really don't get all that excited about Halloween itself, but I love these designs. They are just to cool not to stitch!!
My friend Karin is going to stitch Maxim and Zoya by Plum Street Samplers. This is a totally cool piece!!! I know she will finish it in the allotted time (unlike me who always breaks the rules!)
My friend Patti is going to stitch Land That I Love by Birds of a Feather. Love this one too! And will be stitching it sometime soon too!
Jayne is going to stitch Home of the Free Sewing Set by Needlemade Designs. I love this one too!
I think that both Brenda and Linda are going to stitch Jane Osborn - An American Sampler by Priscilla's Pocket.
I am not sure what Barb, Teresa and Pat are stitching for their project. Girls, please let me know so I can update this post!
Also, if anyone else decides to play along, please let me know what you pick. I still have until Friday to change my mind!!!!
