A Teeny Bit Crabby

Thank you all for the kind comments regarding my last freebie. Also for the happy birthday wishes for Jessie. There were so many, she was over the moon! I still need to figure out how I want to finish A Star Danced, I'm thinking a pillow...if I can find a fabric I like.

Now, why am I crabby? It's all those stinkin' single stitches of snow! But they are finally completed and with that, the January block of Crabby All Year is finished! ***mini happy dance*** This months' block has two little bird buttons to decorate. Those will wait until the very end, when all the stitching is finished. I guess I'll work on the top banner now until it's time for the February design. This is a really soothing pattern to stitch, easy to follow and not so many color changes to drive you batty...yet enough to keep things interesting.


Too cute! And so much fun to stitch! I only wish we would actually receive some snow with our cold this year. No, just cold. Blah.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

That is too cute! I had to frog all my snow at the bottom-and that was before I started drinking the merlot. Think I should pick up a needle now or go to bed? ;)

Theresa said...

So cute!!!!!!
Looks like it's going to be a very fun SAL~

Missy Ann said...

Congrats on the finish. The snow was a big pain to stitch, but I don't like to talk about it because it's such a cute piece that in the end it is worth it.

Daniela said...

What a fun design. Your stitching looks so cute. I can imagine it is fun to stitch.

Patty said...

I love this! And, a belated Happy 21st Birthday to Jessica!

Patty said...

I had to google the chart to see all of it. How funny! I love the October zombie one. I should put this on my to-do list.

Srinity said...

It looks really nice! We actually have snow but luckily our car is under a roof so I don't have to dig it up on the snowy mornings. :)

Happy belated Birthday Wishes to Jessica!

Mylene said...

The crabby block finished is sooo cute!

Lindsay said...

Doing a mini happy dance with you

Christine said...

That looks great! I'm leaving the Jan block on mine for now, because we hardly ever get snow, so I want to swap it with something and I haven't decided what yet.

karenv said...

Your first block looks great!

Brigitte said...

Great start on Crabby All Year. I love this design, all the little scenes are from real life, lol.

Angela said...

All those single stitches sound like a real nightmare, but the end result looks great.

Quirky said...

That is really cute!

Annie said...

Looks great on that fabby. I always use the pinhead stitch for those isolated stitches. Works like a charm although it does take a bit longer. The stitches are so secure that way that I have a devil of time frogging if I misplace one!

Wendy said...

This is very cute! I'm looking forward to see the progress of the others.

Kathy said...

Love it. I must put this one on my wish list. LOL

Paisley said...

Congratulations! You're off to a great start on Crabby! That car would look just like mine if it had another foot of snow on it!

Glenna said...

I love the Crabby progress you've made. I've done only Rabbits! and Taxes! and should go back on do it month by month as you are. And a belated happy birthday to Jessica! The little b-day design is so cute!

Ginnie said...

Your stitching looks great, well done for persisting on the small snow stitches!

Rachel S said...

Very pretty. I agree about the snow. We get smidges of it, but not enough to have fun. It's just COLLD.

Pumpkin said...

Awesome! Doing a HD with you :o) That is such a cute design and so appropriate for January. LOL! I can definitely send you some snow because we have more than enough now :oS

Btw, I love your little kitty icon on the left :o)

Sharon said...

Awh, if you'd like some SNOW, just say so~I'll share some of ours with you. Tee Hee We've had over 40" this season so far, so enough to go around.

Your Snow & Cold square is very sweet. I've seen this Design and just love it. Can't wait to see yours come together.

Have a super wonderful day.

Sherry said...

It really is cute. Maybe I'll add this to my wish list.

CathE said...

It's looking really good, glad you're enjoying it.

That turned out so well and I love the fabby! Will be watching your progress!

That is just the neatest piece. I love all the Crabby All Year ideas and you are doing a wonderful job of stitching them all.

You can have some of my snow... We've been getting quite the load of it lately... :(

Lori-Ann said...

Makes me chuckle. Very cute. TFS

Shebafudge said...

Thank you very much......just what need..........something to make my wishlist even longer!!!

It looks great though. Can't wait to see the rest of them done.

Cindy F. said...

Uh-oh!! This is too cute and I may have to have this now!! ...lol...

Solstitches said...

I don't do snow - anyone would be crabby if they had to deal with this.
What a fun project you are working on.
