Doodle Drawn Thread Progress

So while the A to Z Challenge was going on, I did manage to stitch a bit.  I need to decide what I am going to do in some of the sections, but I am making some progress on this piece.

Z is for Zebra

I bought this canvas for one of my kids to stitch, but she doesn't stitch anymore and there it sits in my stash.
I finished the A to Z Challenge!!!It would be fun to revisit these pieces next year to see if they still live in my stash or have moved on or if I have done some stitching on them!!!

Y is for Yarn

 I do not have much yarn as I do not knit.  It is one of the few crafts that I don't do!  But I do crochet.  This yarn is for an afghan that I hope to do.  The only problem is that I can't read the pattern.  I have friend who do and one of these days this pile of yarn will be something beautiful.

X is for Cross Stitch

 I know. I know.  Cross stitch doesn't start with an x, but I have a tone of patterns that I need to make hundreds and thousands of x's on.
This first one is "Bee Happy" by Sandra Sullivan.  I even have the fabric for it and it is together with the pattern! A minor miracle if you ask me.
 Then there is this Autumn Box by Victoria Sampler.  Just love the colors.  No fabric bought for it yet.
 And I found one of my "lost" Just Nan patterns!
 And another Victoria Sampler called Winter Box.  A friend bought it accidentally and decided she did not want to do it.  One of these centuries I will get to it.

W is for Wildflower Box

I don't remember when my son and I did this with a group from my local guild, but it was years ago.
I have finished the band around the top of the box,I think.

My son finished his box and won a prize at the local fair. Maybe I should just steal his and be done with it.

V is for Vintage Ornament

My guild ordered these for a group project.  I ordered quite a few and they live in my basement with all my other Christmas stash.  I could almost do an A to Z challenge with my Christmas stuff.
