2011 Stitching challenge

So, a bunch of us insane stitchers started a new challenge for 2011.  For each of the first 15 days of the new year, we have to start a new project.  Then, the goal is to finish all 15 by the end of the year!  Here is my list:

Janlynn Wizzers - Stained Glass Chapel
Mill Hill Simply Seasonal Windowpane January/February
Mill Hill Simply Seasonal Windowpane March/April
Mill Hill Simply Seasonal Windowpane September/October
Sekas - A Gingerbread Heart (stitch twice)
Sekas - A Gingerbread Heart (stitch twice)
Bent Creek - Snow
The Victoria Sampler - White Christmas
Lavender Wings - If I Could Be a Snowman
Marbek - The Nativity
Cross My Heart Inc - Smoky Mountain Christmas
Jeremiah Junction - Recycle
Lavender Wings - Jingles, Chuckles, Snowball & Twitch
Knotted Tree - Autumn Leaves
Sekas - Watercolour Apples

I tweaked my challenge a little.  After the 15th, I will start with the 1st project and stitch on it Monday thru Saturday until it's finished.  On Sundays, I'll work on Stoney Creek's Nature's Home Afghan.  When I finish a project, I will spend 1 week working on a UFO, the first being 'Coffee Angel'.  Then, of course, there are pieces that need to be done for exchanges, RRs, ornaments, etc.  My personal goal is to finish 75 projects for 2011.  My husband's comment?  Good luck with that, babe!

Here are pictures of the projects that I've started so far this year:

I forgot to take a picture of the 2nd Gingerbread Heart that I started last night.  I've got a nasty sinus infection so I stopped at the Walgreens Take Care Clinic after work.  By the time I got home, helped Mariah practice for her spelling test and ate dinner, I was too tired to stitch so I put in 1 thread just to say I started it.  Today I'm working on Smoky Mountain Christmas.  I'll post pictures of both of them tomorrow.
