Crazy Talk II

I pulled put my stash to see what I had for the 15 project challenge......I can't believe I feel inspired or is that a bit of insanity creeping like a dark spector similar to the way the bad guys come out of the sewers in the form of black shapeless clouds in the movie Ghost?   

I found more than 20 - lol imagine that - with fabric and floss in my 'to-do' next basket.  I even managed to find one to send to Jodie with an alphabet in it.   I want to run to my LNS this week and pick up the fabric before I send it off to her to stitch and enjoy and fabric I need for one. 

Sorry for the glare of the overhead light in the wee hours of the morning.


If, IF, I take this on, I will have to make a list to post in my sidebar of project title and designer.
 I fussed and arranged and tried to pare down before I needed to get a serious move on and shower for work without a decision being finalized.   I even put some attention into the order I should start.....alternating easy-peasy ones and quick stitches between largers stitchy delights.  I wonder what the best approach would be......alternate proejcts in their little bags in the order I start them?   On no, more could end up in the WIP pile.  Won't get boring at least.   Or start to finish one as a time?     If I alternate, what will I do when I go on vacation?   Take 7 zip lock bags with projects?  What to do, what to do!

Then I figured it out, that 15 projects in one year gives me 24 days for each on average and of course some will take 2 days and some will take many more.  Seems doable.

I must be suffereing from temporary insanity to be even be considering this.......temporary insanity or lack of sleep......but the mind is whirling..............if I overcast all the edges, pull all the threads, zip-lock everything up between Christmas and New Year's............then maybe.  As they say, it is all in prep work and having the right tools.

I'm thinking of getting in on this too, but I keep pulling out big projects. With only 24 days on each, I wouldn't be able to sleep!

Yeay!! I'm glad to see somebody else is in on the craziness. :D

The way I'm doing it is that I'm going to do one BAP as my January 1 start (Jane Atkinson by Scarlet Letter) and then the rest will be smaller designs and seasonal designs. BBDs and that sort of thing, some GHs, etc. I am hoping that will be reasonable. I change my mind every hour or so, but am enjoying dithering over it. Better to obsess about what to stitch on than the state of the economy, right?!? ;)

BTW, I absolutely LOOOOOOOVVVVVEEE the wrought iron pumpkin holder in your blog header photo! Gorgeous.
