A Little Heart Progress

Thanks for your comments.  They made me laugh as I can tell you are all dedicated stitchers and love new projects as much as I do.  But I really need to make a dent in my stash before I add more.
Having said that, my "goal" was to have this heart done before Valentine's Day.  Why?  Besides the obvious fact that it is a heart,  Gay Ann Rogers
is having a sale starting on Thursday.  I think she will have at least one new heart that I will have to add to my stash.  So much for will power and self-control.

Heart Update


The other day a friend asked about projects and starting new ones.  It made me think about the projects I am currently working on. First, there is the year long project I am teaching my local EGA.  Next is my large project which right now is  Doodle Drawn Thread Sampler by Gay Ann Rogers.  Then I have a small project to work on which is usually a Mill Hill bead kit or one of those Stitch N Zip Projects. And I usually have a medium easy project going which currently is this Cameo Blue Heart by Gay Ann Rogers.  When I finish one of these projects, I start a new one(either a WIP or a totally new project) in the same category. So when this heart is done, I will start a new one or work on a Santa by Janet Zickler Casey.  How about you?  How do you decide to start a new project?

Crazy Quilt Round Robin




I finished working on my section of this crazy quilt.  The dragonfly came out ok.  I would fix him, but I am not sure how.  His body isn't as pink as it looks on my screen. It needs to be shipped out next week and then I receive someones square.  Fun!

WIP- A little stitching

It has been a bit since I posted.  My dd is taking driver's ed and it is taking a lot of my time too! I gave up starting more pieces although I will be starting at least two, maybe three more projects this month.  But all those starts were getting to me.  I can't imagine starting a new one each day for a year!  I am trying to finish this Mill Hill bead kit.  I work on it a little every evening.  Tomorrow I will show you a finish,kind of.

Two Finishes and Some Starts

I finally finished Heirloom Stitching Sampler.  I took these terrible pictures so I could run it to the framer.




 This little owl was started January 26 and finished the 27th.  I cannot find the designer in my mess, but I used it to teach some high school teens how to stitch.

I ended up ordering AW 1662 with floss and it came in very quickly.  It is my start(cough,cough) for January 27.
The last piece is Reptiles by Escher which is a Heaven and Earth Designs.  I am going to start basting the grid on it today.

Day 25-Ann Lawle Sampler

Anne Lawle by Scarlet Letter Samplers
I ordered this in anticipating that I would have finished Heirloom Stitching Sampler by now, but I have a bit more to do on it.  I cannot start another sampler until I get the Heirloom one done!  But now I have no urge to stitch this one, but want to get this one .  I may just order it as I love it and want to stitch it.

Day 24-The First Christmas Stocking

I have not put needle to fabric on this, but I am the only one in my family without a stocking.  I hope to change that this year.  Ha!
