It's Here! It's Here!!

The first installment of the SamSarah Fun Every Day perpetual calendar arrived in my mailbox yesterday! Oh, happy day!! This is really going to put a kink in my plan to start the last 3 projects on my 'List' for 2012, lol. I still plan to get those starts in, for sure, but how soon that will be remains to be seen. 

My start-up package yesterday consisted of enough perforated paper to complete all 48 designs in the series, enough die-cut tags to mount them all on for hanging, the first four charts in the series, and all of specialty flosses necessary for the initial charts. Looks like I'll be starting with Tuesday, January, the number 1, and a blank number to put in the left place for days 1-9 of every month. Here's (most of) what I received:

They were also kind enough to toss in a couple of small, Christmas-themed freebie charts. Of course, I could NOT resist starting on this right away. So...I stitched last night until 2am, when I finally convinced myself it was time to put the needle down and go to bed, and then picked back up this evening and put in quite a few more stitches. Here's where the first chart, Tuesday, is now:

This is such a fun stitch...expect regular updates. I've also made some progress on both WWoG and Forest Goddess. Update pics of those will come soon. My stitching mojo is definitely in overdrive these days! :)


  1. I don't think I've ever commented before, but I really enjoy your blog! This looks like it's going to be a fun project and something you will get tons of use out of when finished. I'm looking forward to watching your progress!

  2. Love this! I can't wait to get it myself but in the meantime I will enjoy your progress.

  3. That does look like a fun stitch! Looking forward to seeing your progress on it.

  4. Love this project, I'm so looking forward to your monthly progress. It's inspiring me to design my own. I do love monthly designs and I like to change my displays through the year.

  5. One of the ladies at the stitching GTG I attended had this as her WIP. It looks pretty neat.
