Day 6 - I made 2 starts today in order to stay on track for the overall challenge timeframe. After church, we took down our Christmas tree (FINALLY!!) and had some lunch. When that was done, I was free to stitch :) I started Christmas Gentlemen, which was to be yesterday's start, and worked on it for about 2 hours. I was stitching white and ecru on fiddler's cloth, so it's pretty hard to see, but here's my progress on this one:

The other start I made today was Wisteria Fairy by Karen Weaver of Black Swan Designs. This was a free chart from The Stitchery magazine, year unknown. I absolutely love BSD, so I was thrilled to find that I had one of their charts in my 'old magazine' stash. This is such a fun stitch that I have no doubt Wisteria Fairy will be a 2013 finish. I began this one late this evening and worked for about 2 1/2 hours. Here's where I ended up:

And look...more sparkly fabric! :)
Tomorrow's start: **Halloween** a Passione Ricamo freebie.
Back with a new update tomorrow. G'night y'all!
