Crazy January Challenge ~ Day 15

Finally … the final day of the Crazy January Challenge – Starts!

For day 15 I have selected a pattern from the Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament Issue by Raise the Roof Designs called ~ Nickademus.  I really don’t know the reason behind the name but it is a simply darling pattern of a Sock Monkey holding a big red heart.  The pattern calls for small button mittens to be stitched on the hands.  I am stitching him on 14 Ct. baby blue Aida with the called for DMC threads.


Here is a snap of the days progress.  I really got a lot done.




I am stitching a pair of them for a group I am in that is called The Stitching Corp.  It is a group of stitchers that make pairs of Christmas Ornaments each year and the coordinator, Tina mails one of them to a Military Service Member that is deployed and the matching one to his or her family.  Having a son in the Army makes this project something close to my heart.

Now to decide how I want to rotate all these 15 projects in and out to get them finished!
