january 3 - the best laid plans

I was all set to start a third project from my list today, when I realized that I have less than two weeks to stitch up a baby sampler for a christening gift for my nephew's little girl. Ack! So I (luckily) found a perfect pattern that I already had, ran to Michael's on my break for some threads that I needed and will get started tonight. I wanted to stick with my challenge, so I just added this design to my (already too long) list. The design is called Gabrielle Rose and it is from La-D-Da.

I will be stitching over one on 25ct. ecru evenweave. so it will be rather small. I'm not sure yet whether I will frame it or finish it some other way. I guess I should just worry about stitching it first!
This is as far as I got so far.

I also brought one of my UFOs to work on while on my break, but that didn't happen either. Oh well, tomorrow is another day!

Thanks for visiting!


  1. Great choice for the christening sampler. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

  2. Great start...I didn't realize LaDDa had over 100 designs. I love LaDDa!

  3. I'm also stitching a La-D-Da piece for the Crazy Challenge, my first one. You are doing so great with the challenge. I love to see all the stitchers' starts on their blogs, it's highly inspiring.
    I hope you will soon get rid of the sinus infection.

  4. Love that La D Da birth sampler. Great start.

  5. What a beautiful birth sampler - and a good start, too.

  6. That is going to be really pretty. Great start :)

  7. I love this baby sampler, I'll have to keep it in mind the next time I need one.
