HAP and Day 1 of CJC

I can't believe it's 2015. We had a nice night just doing nothing. We watched movies and switched to watch the last half hour of Ryan Seacrest's show. Since it was a night to celebrate I figured I should work on 99. I got two more bottles stitched and some more of the shelf under them.
Today is the First of January which means two things.

Today is the first HAP SAL check in. I started a new HAED because none of mine fit the category for the SAL....well also cause I wanted to really bad haha. I started her on December 21st. I got to work on her for 7 days so far. Here is the progress picture...
I have 2,360 stitches in. She is my beautiful blue blob haha. Her name is Selkie. Her picture is on the right hand side.

Today was the first day of the Crazy January Challenge. I'm starting a new piece everyday for the first 15 days. I put the names of my picks into a container and let Jeremiah pick which one I will work on. He picked Christmas Pals Ornaments. Here is what it will look like...
Then I told him pick 1 through 6 and he picked 5 so I started the middle snowman on the bottom. Here is my progress after today...
Today we watched the Rose Bowl parade. That's my favorite parade to watch by far. I love the decorations on the floats. They sure spend a lot of time and it's just breathtaking. Fred enjoys watching the bands since he was in band growing up. After that we watched old TV shows we have stored on our DVR. Poor thing has over 100 shows haha. We got caught up on Resurrection finally. I really like that show. Tomorrow is Day # 2. See ya then.

  8. What a great New Year's stitch! You made a lot of progress on your snowman, that'll be finished in no time. I worked on two of the floats for the Rose Parade when I was in Girl Scouts - up before dawn to ride a bus for two hours to sit in a warehouse and paint glue on a zebra, then press down white seeds into the glue - in 8 hours I got one neck stripe done. Where were the child labor laws, ha ha. I did it again in high school, but they don't let high schoolers touch the floats, lol, we sat outside on crates sorting out some kind of black seed, if it wasn't perfectly black we had to pick it out. When you're young, it seems like a glamorous job!
