So much to stitch, so little time
There are so many designs I want to stitch and it frustrates me when I get too many things started and not enough finished. I have been working on WIPs from prior years and now have added a couple of new starts. I still want to finish all my WIP's at some point and tend to stitch them on how loud they talk to me at the time. Currently CHS alphabets has been calling the loudest although I hear others say they would like to see the light of day as well.. particularly As they Sinned. I really enjoy stitching on it. I think it will become my Sunday afternoon stitching project when I get something finished I am currently working on. I am going to work on my Alphabets today as I have wanted to have that on the wall for a long time and I am seeing progress on that as I go. The other design I would really like to finish soon is Where my Heart Blooms by Blackbird Designs. I made a huge mistake on it and had to take one whole side out so that tends to make me put it back in the basket. Plus I want to start Sail Away by Shepherd's Bush. I have included pics of Sail Away as I sorted the threads for it in preparation for starting a stitch a long with a group of stitchers and Elizabeth Foster sampler that I have wanted to start for a long time and my small start on Mary Wigham sampler done on 45 ct buttercream and Belle Soie silks (Attic conversion).
I almost forgot to tell that Plum Street samplers is having a give away on her blog but even better she has a freebie there
