DJ's Daring Duo

So Friendly Stitchers....are we having fun yet?  LOL!!  Thank you, Maureen, for kicking things off!  As I mentioned before, I've decided to pick two that I truly want to finish this year.  First off is a kit I picked up during my anniversary trip.  I guess this may be the only way I'll get to see Northern Lights!  LOL!!

And the second is a project I've had hanging around for ages.  I've had the material and all the patterns for years now and I decided it's time that it saw the light of day.  There are 13 parts to this pattern, the border (which can be found for free online here), and 12 other smaller charts that represent months.  My hope is to finish the border in January, then two of the small individual charts a month so that I finish well before the year is finished.  I love the saying.... 

"An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance.  The thread may stretch or tangle, but it will never break." - Chinese proverb

The saying is meaningful to me because it reminds me of people I've met through unusual circumstances, people who I have come to love as family.  A few of them are part of the "Friendly Stitcher's Yahoo Group".  So...let the year of getting it done begin!  I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Years!  *Hugs*


  1. Wow, the northern lights is one grand project. I believe that I also have the 2nd project somewhere in my stash!
    Good luck!

  2. Oh I love what you've picked. That Northern lights is certainly a big BAP!

  3. Two nice big projects sending positive thoughts to help you on your way

  4. DJ - I have BOTH those projects in my stash-to-do pile!
