Crazy January Challenge Start #2

My second start for the CJC is a limited edition kit from Lizzie Kate called Christmas is Forever. I bought this in 2008 but never started it since my Christmas stitching is usually limited to a quick ornament or two, if that. December is just one of those months that is so jam-packed with activity that I rarely get much stitching done. I usually choose my stitching projects according to the seasons so I was afraid I might feel a little off kilter starting a Christmas design in January. Maybe it was the simply devine Crescent Colours fibers that came with the kit, or possibly it was that scrumptious shade of pink (Carrie Berry! Yum!) but I didn't experience a single obsessive compulsive twitch while I was working on this project. Christmas stitching! In January! Whodathunkit!

Tonight's start will most likely be one of the Shepherd's Bush kits I have on my list. Stay tuned!

I have stitched many a Christmas ornament in January. When I'm still enjoying that warm feeling of Christmas but without all the stress (or twitches)... LOL!! Great new start! Enjoy!
