Wow, I'm not the only one that's crazy! For this challenge I chose African Woman.
I saw this kit a very long time ago. It was pricey so it took me a while to splurge... The while was so long that it was unavailable anymore. I called Gita's and they say they will try to get it for me. It took exactly a year and that was 7 month ago.
I promised myself not to start anything big this year, finish what I started before and do 15 new little projects from my stash. Well, I opened the package...
finished the fabric edges, put on the scroll frame and the rest is a history
That's the beginning of the challenge. It should be done by December 31, 2012. The size of Lanarte's African Woman is 15.4"x19.3" (187 x 255 stitches).

Last Saturday Freddy took Topaz to the vet for the checkup. Her ear is healing nicely but she has a lot of trouble with her collar. She still doesn't eat dog food but finally drinks her water. She has good appetite but only for people food...
In a week vet is removing stitches (if all goes well) and hopefully we can say goodbye to this huge, stiff collar.
So long my friends,
