Days 8, 9 and 10

Here are my Crazy starts for days 8, 9 and 10.  As you can see, there is as much amazing progress as all my other starts!

Day 8 was Footprints by Praying Hands. Why, oh why have I fallen for a design that it pretty much all backstitch?  Am I totally mad?  (Don't answer that!)

Praying Hands - Footprints
Stitched on SMF - Rhapsody
with recommended threads
Day 9 was Honeysuckle Courtyard which was also a Turtle Trot piece.  This is the start of band 3.  See yesterday's post for the reason I started there!

Honeysuckle Courtyard - Patricia Ann Designs
stitched on white jobelan
with recommended threads
Day 10 is a Mirabilia - Faerie Spring Fling.  I am starting at the bottom and working my way up to her face. It does mean though, that I am stitching the design upside down so that my hand is not touching the stitching more than it has to.
