A Finish!

 I decided to concentrate on finishing this piece before the end of November and I did managed to do it!

I noticed that I skipped one stitch on a square, but fixed it. What to do with this piece? No, I won't frame it. And I do have the Red, White and Blue Inchies that is finished too....I'm thinking they need to be project bags. But do I want to mess with that?

IHSW for November

 Well, I have more WIPS, but I am tired of posting them. Oh well. There will be an opportunity to revisit them in January, right?

I did get some serous stitching done over the weekend.

Inchies has started getting borders!

I tried white floss, but was not happy with the results. The black does make it pop!

I am moving forward on my heart project. I would love to finish it and then be able to start a Santa in December.

And I put a few stitches into Agnus Dei:

I have not counted to see what finishes I have for 2020. But my fear is that I only finished things that I started this year. Hmmmm. Not good.

I Almost Forgot!

 It is time for the Totally Useless SAL where we show our orts to the blog world!

I did some totally unnecessary reverse stitching on my Inchies project. Sigh. At least I have made a little progress on it!

A Project That I Hope to Finish Soon

 I really hope to get this WIP finished soon. I am trying to teach it to my guild via Youtube. It would be so much easier to meet in person, but that won't happen soon.

And here is progress on my Gay Ann Rogers heart:

Gifted Gorgeousness For November and A Few More WIPS

 So Gifted Gorgeousness is the brainchild of Jo from Serendipitous Stitching

You are supposed to post photos of a project that is a gift for someone else, a gift from someone else,  or has the word gift in it.

I have actually started working on My Beloved, MH 1656 by Hands Across the Sea Samplers again. This piece was a gift to Nicola from her husband so it counts!

Here are some of my other WIPS that are in my stash:

Lotus Box by Terri Bay

Paisley Passion by Deb Forney:

Reptiles by HAED

Scissors and lace(?) by Shakespeare's Peddler

Linen and Threads Mystery SAL

How many WIPS do I have? I'm not counting......

And "real" sampler

Royal Garden by Debbie Rowley:

I do love the colors on this piece.  

While doing yardwork today, I thought of a few WIPs that I don't think I have posted in a while. Will try to snap a photo and share with you soon.

Gay Ann Roger's Heart

 As you know, I love all things Gay Ann. Her hearts are particularly fun to stitch. I started this one because a friend said she was starting hers....

 These are not colors I am normally drawn to, but it will look fabulous when stitched.

A New Challenge

 A friend challenged me on Facebook to list all my WIPS. I didn't really list them all, just sent everyone to my post HERE

But I then had another friend talk about how many WIPS do you really have? Good question. It is starting to be time to gear up for the holidays, but I am going to try to post photos of my WIPS during the month of November. No particular order. There may be more than one a day or I may skip days. But the goal is to see how many I have...Then I can be prepared for plans for 2021. HA!!!

This piece was started recently, but I took it on vacation with me. I plan on doing a hemstitch around it and using it to decorate in my house.
