My New Year's Start!

Well, I picked up my needle on New Year's Day and begin my Prairie Schooler ABC Project! As of this afternoon, I completed the letter "A". I am stitching on 25 count cream colored evenweave fabric with the called for DMC threads. I did make a change. I used 816 instead of the called for 3857 (red). I thought the 816 showed up a little better. I am doing the stitching over one thread. I like how it is turning out!

I plan to stitch 2 letters a month. I hope this won't be too ambitious. I won't be sarting my second letter ("J") until January 15th. I have several other projects I'm working on and I need to give them a little attention.

Thanks for looking.

Nice job Holly. Ambitious plan to do two a month; I'm still slogging away on my first and it's been days!

You're off to a great start Holly. I'm just doing one a month, but that may change is nothing else calls my name.
