Yes I have high hopes - high hopes of finishing my current WIPs by the end of 2007. Thank you Bliss and Lili for spurring me on.
and I are both plugging away at LV Christmas tree. When mine wasn't finished by the end of 2006 I put it away thinking I had lots of time before Christmas 2007. Lili did continue putting her stitches in and three weeks ago I felt it was high time to join her again. To my horror I discovered I hadn't approached this project in a smart way. Rather than stitching in mirror image I started on the left side of the tree working down. I'm now working on the right side and so far have found only one mistake on the left which was easy to duplicate on the right. What do you say Lili - finish sititching and beading by November 30 so that it will be ready to display by Christmas?
And then there's Frederick. Bliss http://blissxstitches.blogspot.com/
and I SAL away on this on Tuesdays. That is - when we have the time and inspiration!! Last week she suggested we set a deadline on this finishing - December 31. Excellent idea Bliss!! This week I've managed to work on him most evenings and even though I've had to frog several times I feel I'm making progress.
Can you blame me for having high hopes with such good intentions and friends who will see this through with me?
Now you're wondering if I've gone completely mad and will not be starting new projects before the end of the year. You should know me better than that. I do have a new project and started it at our SP stitching day last Wednesday. For now it will be my Wednesday project and what do you think it's called? Right you are - 'High Hopes' http://www.justnan.com/jn118.html
Isn't this the sweetest little garden you have ever seen? I fell in love with it when I first discovered it at SP and immediately ordered it. When DH & DS picked it up for me in December they also brought home the cute Bird Bath Charm. I'm stitching 1/2 and 1/1 on 28 ct mushroom evenweave.
