Happy 2016. Some finishes and a bunch of new starts

Hi everyone!
I decided to join in the Crazy January Challenge on FB. Dedicated to Debbie Faris Bryant who passed away, at a very young age, from a heart attack in 2014. It was Debbie who came up with the idea of a start a day for the months of January and February. Last year I had way too many UFO's to join in the 2015 group. This year I am able to join in the fun. Here is what I have so far this month. 12 starts, 2 finishes and 3 ready for beads and ornamentation.
So here goes

Day 1 start is Brooke's Books January Birthday Cake,
Since this pic was taken I have finished the cross stitch and it is waiting for beads. I forgot to take another picture.

Day2 is HAED Boo, artist Randal Spangler, a RAK from Courtney Sands for my birthday last year.
 Not too bad for a days work. Over 1000 stitches. Think this one is going to be a fast one once the challenge is over and I can concentrate on it.

Day 3 is another HAED. Trim The Tree Stocking, artist Randal Spangler. This one did not go as fast as DH decided to bake a giant cake. Stitching was doomed that day!

Day 4 was a Lizzie Kate January Stamp. Which I finished.
Day 5 was a Lizzie Kate January Blocks. Finished!

Day 6 is another Lizzie Kate Santa Wanted. I couldn't put him down and he is ready for beads.

Day 7 is Ellen Mauer-Stroh January Carnations

Day 8 is Winter Pantry, Brooke's Books

Day 9 is January new years bear, Joan Elliott

Day 10 is a Just Nan shop freebie Royal Blossoms smalls. Would Like to make a biscornu out of this one.
Day 11 is Lizzie Kate February Stamp. All it needs is some flower buttons. The fabric is a 28 count Pink Polkadot from Fabric Flair. Fun to work with.

Day 12 is February Blocks, Lizzie Kate. I did start this and have the bottom right block finished. And I should have updated this as I changed the fabric to the same pink polkadot as the Feb stamp.

Day 13 start will be Country Cottage Needleworks Merry Christmas Deer.

Oh, and I won a small pattern, of my choice, from HAED. I completed both my yearly, and half year goals, in the group bulletin board. The randomizer pulled my name out of its cyber hat. Had to go back 3 times to read the announcement to make sure I didn't make a mistake and read the wrong name. This is the pattern I chose.
Not sure when I will be able to start this one. My year is pretty well planned. But, one never knows!

Thanks for stopping by!
