Crazy January Challenge with a dash of wit

While preparing for Crazy January Challenge I found projects that are barely started, that are challenging, beautiful and definitely need to be finish. After all the purpose of the challenge is to use old stash...

Here they are:

Project 1 - Shiver Me Timbers from Sue Hills Design. This project I'm stitching for our dear friend  from ILCS group Rene. Rene is very ill and I know she likes the pattern.

I'm stitching it on the 32 ct Mercedes Lugana with DMC floss. When done it will look like this:

Project 2 - Egyptian Temple from Heaven and Earth Designs design by Ciro Marchetti:

This one I'm stitching on 25 ct Jobelyn over 1 thread with 1 thread of floss. It is a huge project and I'm sure it will take me years to finish. When done it will look like this:

Project 3 - Angel of the Morning from Lavender and Lace:

Another BAP! Fabric: Blue Spruce Jobelyn 32 ct, 2 over 2.  When done it will look like this:

Stay tuned for another update of my Crazy January Challenge (CJC)!
