12 Days of Christmas

Look what I found.......
Prairie Schooler 74 The 12 Days of Christmas

I found this little treasure at Em Li's Fine Sampler Supplies.  Click on the link to visit.  Not only did Carol have the chart, but she only charged me the price on it.  I got this little beauty for $6.00 plus postage.  I highly recommend visiting her store.  Its filled with samplers and hard to find, out of print, items.  She is super friendly too. ;)
As for my crazies challenge, I am only going to work on one crazy project at a time.  I am also working on the WIPocalypse and feel I need to work on the oldies first.  Here is the progress on my first crazies challenge.
Jane Netley Mayhew's Humpback Whale and Calf
This is the top half of the mama whale.  I was intimidated by this little lady at first, but I came up with a system that is really working for me.  I have to thank all of you bloggy buddies for teaching me so much and inspiring me to try more challenging patterns.  This will go the Love Quilts.  Its a great charity where stitchers can contribute stitched squares to make up quilts for sick children.  I have a link on the right for anyone who wants more information.  
I am also treating myself to a square a week on my very first HAED.  I took some pics, but they were all blurry.  I will scan in my progress and post on Monday.
I also want to say thanks for all of your comments and support on No Greater Love.  And thank you to SoCal Debbie for letting me know about the TUSAL.  I am really happy because now I can clean the jar and re-post (he he he).
Well, until next time, keep those needles sharp and those eyes checked. ;)

I love that pattern. I love The Prairie Schooler patterns. I'm looking forward to watching the whale grow and HAED update.

I also bought that PS 12 Days of Christmas chart for only $6 from another blogger! It is one of my UCJC starts.
