Day 6 and 7 - 2 Crazies, 2 finishes :D

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all enjoying your weekends stitching (I love to see all your progresses growing :D), I managed to steal some time from work on both days to dedicate mysekf to stitching and I ended up finishing both crazies :D, so I can say the year is starting pretty good (after 7 days I have 3 finishes already, that is definitely much more finishes than last year , yay)...
For day 6 I've changed my project... I've been trying to be a good girl and follow my list, but on Friday I got post, it was Cross Stitcher Magazine, and although I didn't like most of the projects on it (I'll definitely change as soon as my subscription finishes) I fell in love with the Chinese Lunar New Year zodiac signs, and since my boss is Chinese, I thought it was the perfect excuse to stitch the dragon and give it to her near the Chinese New Year... I'm still deciding how I'm going to finish it. I've changed the colours, instead of being all read I did the stitches in purple (her favourite colour) and backstitched in black to be even more visible and I loved the final result (I might do another one, this time in red and black, and I'll give it to another colleague of mine that is also Chinese eheheh) and enough of the talk, here's the picture:

For day 7 I're returned to my list and stitched the freebie pincushion that came with one of the CrossStitcher issues... I know the finishing is far from perfect, but hey, it's for me and I'm awful sewing so I can't complain much ;)


Thanks for stopping by :D
Happy Stitches
