I finally started the stitching on this class piece last night. I was supposed to be doing the tent stitch outline on the various bits of him, but after I'd done the first couple of stitches on what I thought was the outline of his sleeve I realised that it was actually compensating stitches, so I just kept stitching the sleeve proper like that was what I meant to do all along. And I've just looked at the stitch diagram and realised that I did my stitches backwards, but I don't think you can tell so I'll just keep going.
I have decided that I'm definitely not joining in on the Crazy January thing, it did sound interesting, but I know I wouldn't get far - I doubt I'd even finish the starts - last time I tried to start a bunch together there were three that didn't get started within my time frame, one I still haven't started. And I can't choose 15 projects - I either have not enough or too many. I also don't really want to just jump into something that doesn't suit what I want to achieve. And at this point in time I'm still looking to clear some of my WIP's, a couple of which are getting close (I must update you on An Open Heart - I've started on the border now - not that it shows up very well being white on white).
So I think I'll just watch and cheer on those who do want to try a crazy challenge, and try and meander towards my own random wishy-washy goals. Although they aren't really called goals or anything like that that makes it sound like work. Cos I know from experience that I'm not too good at meeting targets etc. when I'm supposed to be having fun, I just end up doing nothing, which really gets me nowhere. So maybe I'll call them vague likes.
