Challenge Day 24 through 27

I swapped out some more of my original challenge selections for other pieces.  A couple of the rejected projects just didn't have the right fabric or threads with, others were too similar to other pieces I had already started, and a few were things I didn't like and could not image spending time stitching.

Start 24 is A Knot Garden by Catherine Jordan.  This piece was a ANG Cyber Workshop.  I love the way it looks and I enjoyed working on it.  The blackwork background is endless but it is also relaxing to work on and I got a lot accomplished in an hour.

Start 25 is Autumn Leaves by Prairie Schooler with a thread conversion from Shakespeare's Peddler.  It is a companion to Spring has Come.  I have enough fabric to work both of the designs in the leaflet if I am careful.  These are cute and I think that they will work up pretty quickly.

Start 26 is One Starry Christmas by With Thy Needle and Thread.  I bought the chart, threads and fabric in October because I liked the colors and design.  I am stitching it over one thread on 30 count and the bright colors of silk glow on the fabric.

Start 27 is The Village of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Sampling.  I kitted this up to join a stitch a long in 2015 and never started it.  Now it is started, but I am one thread off either on the initial or the border around it.  I think it will be easier to take out the border when I pick it up again.  This is a big piece, but not a particularly difficult one.  Maybe this year will be its year.
