Nice End to the Year

At the worst my work in progress pile was nearing 20 projects that were started and not finished so I decided it was time to really get a few things completed instead of starting a new project when I was tired of the one I was working on.  I dug through all my stash and made sure all the started projects were accounted for and other than a few sheep to finish the series for Little House Needleworks, nothing new was started this year.  I finished a Tiger Needlepoint canvas for a Lee Purse, a Nantucket basket band, several sheep and now 2 more to finish out the year.

Totally Useless

Fashionably late, but that was predictable considering its me.  My Totally Useless stitch along share for the month, I actually got quite a bit of stitching done this month to add to the jar.  Perhaps I should consider emptying it this year, the vase if rather dusty and that collection has taken several years to fill up. The Little House sheep are finished which was my work project so I've pulled out Blackwork Fantasy Garden for something to keep at work for my lunch break. For as frustrated with it as I was when I put it away, I've really enjoyed working on this one again, a break from blackwork was apparently all I needed.  I only work for 30-45 min per day so not an incredible amount of progress but its's moving in the right direction. At home I went for the piece that appeared closest to finished, a Tribute to Vincent. This was one of my mom's last projects that I've had since... oh 2008 so its past time I get my tail in gear and get it finished.   S

Holiday Finishing

For the complete lack of stitching in the first half of the year, I've managed to get several times done and finished this year which for me is quite remarkable.  Yep, I'm the girl who sewed a fabric roll to store my finished but un-finished stitching so it wouldn't get ruined waiting for me to frame or sew it into something.   I was pacing myself, yeah thats it.  Well I have a few more to share before the year is over.
