Crazy January Challenge - Day V

I'm kind of blown away looking at all the posts on the CJC and what everyone is stitching. Amazing variety. And some of you are very fast stitchers!

I'm glad I got off to a good start while in NH visiting. And I knew I would bog down as soon as I got home. 

I did not start stitching on yesterday's piece until last night at 9:17. But I started today's piece this morning at 7:45. 

I'm learning things about my stitching habits by participating with this challenge. 

Number one thing I have learned is that I waste far too much time on the computer!!! Mostly doing nothing. 

Which inspires me to publicly state a goal for 2011 - cut back on unnecessary computer use. 

I'll make better use of my time by stitching. 

Photos will be here later. I'm off to shoot some now.  Edit:  photos here now!

Pictured above - Day IV - A Sampler Girl freebie that I'm stitching with Ginnie Thompson Flower Thread. Here's a tip:  if you only have time to stitch one thread or less, make certain you stitch something that will be recognizable to you later! This is the beginning of a ship. I'll know where I am.

Day V - Go Fly a Kite started. I was trying to stitch the outline, but somehow my count is off. Figures. So I started the interior of the kite. This is on Lime Zest with DMC floss. 

Below:  How far I got on Day III. I stitched on the bus to Logan, but read my Nook on the plane home. I really want to continue stitching on this one! It's not fair.

Yup, this old computer is a black hole... but it's awfully darn fun too. How else would I get to see your really cool January starts? Good luck with the undecorating, the new resolution, and, of course, the stitching!

Im with the others. You mush share your findings!

I swear there are times I will set aside to stitch and end up mindlessly surfing and then get upset cause I had wasted a perfect stitching opportunity :)
