Mini Rings Finishes, Starts #76-83 and A-Z Challenge Theme

How did another week go by without me blogging? Sheesh, I gotta get on the ball.

We have three more fantastic finishes for the Mini Rings of Change CAL.
I still have to finish mine.
I was tickled to get a comment from Frank O'Randle, the designer of the Mini Rings of Change, on the CAL page. He wanted to let everyone know about a big giveaway he's having on his Ravelry page. You can find it here.

It's the final week of Debbie's Insane Super Duper Crazy Ultimate January February March Challenge. I've really enjoyed it and am looking forward to really working on all of my starts over the next nine months. I do intend to join the challenge again next year, but I don't think I'll go all the way through March, just January and February.
These are my starts from the last week:
#76: Calvin and Hobbes

#77: E is for Embroidery

#78: April Spring Hare by Erica Michaels
I was doing these as my Smalls SAL projects each month, but at 1700 stitches each, they've become too cumbersome to try to finish in a month. I'll be choosing smaller charts from now on for that but intend to complete the series.

#79: Cinderella

#80: Elsa

#81: Santa's 12 Days of Christmas Day 2

#82: Monster

#83: Woof Flip It

So, what am I going to do once the challenge is over? (Besides stitch my starts.) Why, join another challenge, of course!
I'll be doing the Blogging From A to Z Challenge. You post every day in April (except Sundays) and each post has to go in alphabetical order. April 1's post will be themed to letter A, April 2's to letter B, etc. 
My posts will be cross stitch and crochet related (maybe some other things, too, I'm not sure yet). I'll be joining Linda in stitching the Disney Alphabet Sampler by Cloudsfactory and the Christmas Carol Alphabet by Fangirl Stitches; both of these can be found on Etsy. It's nice to have people who are just as crazy as you are and will support (enable) your craziness.

Thanks for reading and looking.
Blessings :-)
