Finally a picture of the biscornu I stitched for a friend's birthday. It took me way longer than I thought it would and I was way too late with it. I had given her the rest of her birthday surprises but this just took me forever to get finished. Now that she has gotten it I can post a picture. The design is Pansy Biscornu by Cedar Hill.
I made some progress over the weekend on Sail Away. I got the waves put back in and the small part of the hill completed and two trees. I still have the bigger part of the hill and 3 more rows after this so I am closer to be done but not really that close. I am excited because I think if I get a couple of more weekends with it I will be done. I have so many WIP to choose from and bunches that have not been started that I would love to begin. I have already been looking at the WIP list to see what I will concentrate on next. I will work on FAS and then something smaller off of the list after I finish CHS Alphabets sampler. I will continue for a while only using new starts as gifts for my friends. I have a great desire to get more finishes from my WIP list. I may pull out a canvas piece as a change of pace. I only have two starts on canvas. One is a bargello pillow from an older issue of New Stitches and the other is a piece by Nancy's Needle named Two Cabins that I will finish for a friend. I haven't worked on canvas in a while. I enjoy it as a change from cross stitch on occasion. I am attracted to the quilt patterns that Nancy's Needle uses on her canvas designs. This small design is not a quilt pattern but cute none the less. I would love to get the bargello pillow done as well. Let's face it, I would really like to get everything on the list done plus all the things I have purchased to work on as well. Oh well, if I live to be really old and keep my eyesight. Hope you have time in your day for stitching. Marjo
