YOTA 2 and First Finish of 2013!

So a fellow blogger at Pull The Other Thread started a challenge that seemed right up my alley since the whole reason I started this blog is to encourage me to finish up the projects I have started. The challenge is called Year of the Acronym or YOTA and here is my second monthly YOTA post of 2013.


I am very VERY happy to say that I have finished this first piece Letter Writing by Carl Larsson!!!  I am so happy that I made my deadline of finishing by the end of January and I completed it on January 30th with one little day to spare!  This is my first finish of the year also :)
Here is where I started on the piece before having to take out a few frogged stitches...


Then a few more stitches...


A few more...


This is how far I was on January 14th...


On January 29th before adding the backstitching...


And here is my finished piece completed on January 30, 2012!



So this YOTA program has been a success for me!  I have already started on a second unfinished project that I can hopefully finish before next month's post :)

Here are the details on this piece:
Designer: Permin of Copenhagen
Design number: 12-8810
Size: 24 x 34 cm or 9 1/2 x 13 inches
Start Date: Sometime in 2004?
Finish Date: January 30, 2013
Purchased at Panduro Hobby shop in Copenhagen, Denmark
Majority stitched in Oslo, Norway

Happy Crafting!
