Ok so I jumped the gun!

I kept telling myself that I would start CDC after the first of the year, but I just had to reward myself for getting all my December goals finished. So without further delay, my first progress pic of CDC after 6 hours of stitching:

Sorry the pic isn't the best, it was taken at night. The fabric is actually more blue than it appears. I'm using 28 ct Jazlyn Opalescent Blue and DMC variations 4240. It's a blue/purple combo.

I have to say I'm really enjoying this project. It's actually rather relaxing compared to some of my other projects. And since I have gone on the Wagon regarding stash, I just had to get one last minute item that I could not possibly live without....Cirque des Carreaux. CDT never really got my interest for some reason, but as soon as I saw Carreaux, I knew it was be fun to stitch.

Sea Stars Progress

Thought I'd post a more recent update of Sea Stars. This is after Week 16 of the SAL:

No progress for Week 17 (last week) due to other commitments and there won't be any this week, as it's Christmas Day. Roll on the New Year. LOL

BTW, love the new look Rachael. :0)

Garden Stars

Here is my first pic of Garden Stars

The Green thread is a Madiera thread, the thread above that I am not sure about for the big motif, so may have to frog that and choose a different colour.

Thanks for looking
