Well, since I was gone to the mainland for most of January, and we are busy with school and all of the kids activities, I didn't start anything. I recently joined the i-love-cross-stitch yahoo group, and was inspired to get started. So on the last day of the month I decided to start a quick-n-easy pattern that I would be able to finish quickly. Looking for not-quite instant gratification here! This is how far I got in January.
