No time to stitch challenge

Posted this on the Counted Cross stitch list, but I've set a challenge- 100 stitches a day in May. Average of course (I've got my little girl's first birthday in May!) and its meant for those of us who haven't been making time to stitch and have projects gathering dust- but if you've got a project gathering dust, feel free to join in! I'm going to be working on Tree Frog Trio first, then probably Birth Announcement (want to get it done before her birthday! ) and if I still have time, get some more of Loving Kittens knocked out.

I stitch (roughly) in blocks but without parking and I have 24 unfinished 10x10stitch blocks left on Tree Frog trio (and 4 smaller blocks) though there's a lot of unstitched spaces and 5 blocks already have some stitching. Probably less than 1,000 stitches. I'm going to post my number of stitches daily (I may even start early, though I won't include those in the average) but probably not pictures.

Good luck anyone who joins me!

Two small finishes

I won't even bother to post the larger projects right now- maybe next week after spring break LOL. However, I did finish a couple small projects, two bookmarks that are birthday gifts for friends of mine. Still working on Loving Kittens and Castle Sampler, though I'm also working on two carry-along projects, the birth announcement for my almost ten month old daughter (oops) and Dimensions Tree Frog Trio for my mom.

The bookmarks were stitched on 14ct Aida using patterns from Dumani designs You can't really tell in the picture, but the green is a silk overdyed floss, BeFrogged from Hand Dyed Fibers I'd received the skein of it, and been trying to figure out what to do with it. Looks like I'll be ordering more to do some more blackwork. Now I just need more blackwork patterns. . . a great change from the confetti I've been dealing with

So I've gotten a little done in the last five months. A very little, LOL. Back stitching though. Naomi has gotten big enough to entertain herself for periods of time and her naps seem to be consolidating. Please ignore my toes.
