Wow that's a impressive list. Hasn't the window really come on since last I saw it.

I have a question about the frame, how much decoupage paper did it take?

Anna said...

Toujours occupée à faire de jolis travaux et tous très variés ! Chapeau !
Bonne journée.

Samantha said...

I think you've achieved an amazing amount this month, it's been very short and all I've achieved is demolishing a huge amount of chocolate :)

Sandra :) said...

You're still doing good, though - your list is 14 less now than it was at the end of 2012 - even if you HAVE added a few (and don't we all??!!) you've finished more than you've added - YAY!

JoJo said...

Holy moly!!!!! Look at you go!! You must live on caffeine! I am intrigued by the decoupatch (sp) frame. Was that done with fabric and mod podge? Be careful of repetitive motion issues with your arms. I suffered horribly from it a few years ago when I was cross stitching all the time. I hope you take breaks to stretch.

Karen said...

I love the window and that little crochet bunny is adorable. You've done great so far this year. 11 finishes in two months is pretty darn good!

Carrie P. said...

you are getting a lot done with a lot more to do :0) Looks like you stay busy with so many interesting crafts. The rabbit scraperboard has me intrigued.

Kerryp77 said...

That' great progress Wendy. well done and the fat bunny is mega cute!

Jane Galley said...

I love seeing someone having as many projects as me to get through, lol. You've made good progress so far. Enjoy March

That list looks very scary written down. Not much time for housekeeping or any other domestic chores in there, so it is not all bad :)

Kasey said...

I am in awe of your list, AND you accomplish so much! Congrats!! All of your work looks amazing.
