I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Crazy January 2015 Challenges


During January 2015 I decided to take the plunge and participate in a couple of January stitching challenges that were running on Facebook.  The two main challenges are:

Cross Stitch Crazy 2015 is a Facebook group that was set up "for stitchers who want to join the 2015 CrosstitchCrazy Event and for stitchers to just come and talk and share their work as they go along. You do not have to be doing the challenge to be in the group. The first 15 days in January we will start a new pattern, we then have the year to complete all 15 patterns we have chosen."

The second one was a lot more challenging.... 31 starts!  Debbie's Ultimate Crazy January Challenge 2015 (DUCJC2015) - this group was set up after So-Cal Debbie passed away as a way to remember Debbie and her crazy stitching plans!  The plan is to start 31 or 59 projects.... (ie a project a day for January and/or February 2015).  I only did the January part of the challenge but next year I think I will go further!  And of course, the 15 starts from Challenge 1 were included in the 31 starts for this challenge.

I have decided to use this page to track my progress on these starts and WIP's in a hope that it will encourage me to finish some of them in 2015!  I will link each start to it's latest update as I go.

I also joined the 15 Miras 15 Days.  This one was to start 15 Mira's (Nora Corbett designs) in 15 days.... well I didn't make that challenge but I am going to try and start 15 Mira this year.  I will keep a track on them on this page as well.
