The only rule is to have fun, keep an eye for you threads and be always in stitches.
Pick 15 projects that are ALREADY STARTED and FINISH them.
ha, there you are, my challenge to you. Not new ones coz we all know there are far more than 15 to which we would like to start.

2 down, 13 to go....

 Yeah....I have had my nose to the grindstone to finish up my second wip for this motivating challenge!!  Here is how I left things last week........That last wide band was half done and I knew I had a row of alphabet left....Why this poor schoolgirl of 1738 only stitched part of the alphabet, we will never know....but she did....

And here is the completed sampler....Its a shame it kept getting pushed to the back of my stitch basket and I am truly embarrased to say it took me 15 years to complete............but it did.
1738 Scottish Sampler
Threads of Gold
32 ct Belfast creme linen
DMC threads
16 x 9 design size

I will be pulling out another oldie but goodie to work on next out of the beloved WIP stitch basket....

I just love how this challenge has motivated me to get some things done~~ Thanks everyone~~



  1. Fifteen wonderful years, no doubt. :) Congratulations on a lovely finish.

  2. Congrats, Faye! You are an inspiration! Can't wait to see what you'll work on next. :)

  3. Way to go. I think I have some dating longer than 15 years. LOL


  4. 15 years Faye!!! is that all? just kidding. It's a beautiful finish and another happy dance going on here. I've got to get started on one of mine. That "other" challenge had to be met first :)
