Gifted Gorgeousness SAL

I've almost missed my February update of Gifted Gorgeousness SAL hosted by Jo. My Super Duper Crazy Challenge is keeping me extremely busy  but I've managed to work a little on the Quaker Christmas Sampler.  Here is my progress:
I hope I will show you more next month. There also will be another project. Seven years ago Tammy gifted to me beautiful Rocky Mountain Christmas chart and finally I decided to bring that piece to life.
So long my friends,

Byline - The Demise of Sun News





The Sun News is gone forever, I hope it will reincarnate in some other form. Happy Valentine's Day!

Help!

January is done and it looks lovely.
Now I'm working on June and next one will be July. And here I'm in trouble. July ornie looks like this:
There is nothing wrong with this look but I would like to be more 'me'. I am Canadian, my birthday is in July and US Independence Day doesn't mean a lot to me (well, my birthday is way much more important) . Can someone help me design my very own ornament for July that fits in Prairie Schooler frame? The stitch count is 52 on the top and bottom line. Left and right line have 8 x 3 + 7 + 8 x 3 = 55.

So long my friends,

2015 Smalls SAL

Oh, I have almost forgot to check in with my Smalls SAL. For some reason January is a very busy month for me. I did the JCC (January Crazy Challenge - 15 new starts). I was going for the Super Duper Challenge (59 starts) but I did not make it. The good news is that I'm cured from startitis (if you are a stitcher you know what disease I'm talking about).  After JCC I went back and continued stitching January from book No. 91 'Summer & Winter' by The Prairie Schooler. I was hoping to have it done by the end of the month and I think I can do it but for today's update I have to show you just my work in progress...
I think it's a nice progress. As of January 12th I had only that much:

 The fabric shows much better on the second picture.
