DUCJC Day 31

Day 20 I started this cute beach chair from Noteworthy Needle. The comments showed that people really liked it. They enjoyed the fun way of finishing into the beach chair. Here is the other one that I started today...
The Day 20 chair was a specialty stitch design. This one was designed at an exclusive for those attending the retreat. The above picture is the display picture of the chair at the Noteworthy Needle booth with the little beach pin cushion I started Day 6. Won't they look fantastic together?? Anyway here is my progress...
So close to a finish! The main thread is Caron Wildflower called Mediterranean. Love how it looks!! The nun stitch border is DMC 996. When I get the border finished you just trim it right up to the nun stitch and then backstitch it onto the chair.

Guess what....I made it to the end of the challenge!! I had so much fun. Only one day where I made almost no progress. I will definitely be joining in again next year. Yes I'll probably have a lot of beach pieces next time too haha. Let's see the theme breakdown from this time...

Beach -- 16
Seasonal  -- 12
Patriotic -- 2
Fantasy -- 1

I still don't know what I plan to work on tomorrow haha. I might have to do a random number generator. I might take a break and work on another WIP since I know they feel left out haha. We'll just have to see what tomorrow brings. So many wonderful choices and I love it!! I know one thing....I shouldn't be bored for a long long time haha. Thanks to each lovely comment you've all made. I've really enjoyed reading them all!

  4. Oh no the end of the January new starts! I keep imagining that you will be too busy stitching to post and we won't hear from you until March! Hope that's not true.
    You finished with a beauty though and I agree with Rachel, you need to finish it now!
    Enjoy playing with all your new starts!

  17. Great job! I love 996 it's so bright! I'll get to play with it in paradise sometime lol I'm waiting for it! I love the other thread too though they contrast nicely. You could always let Jeremiah choose your next piece again and then stitch until it's finished. Have fun!
