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.

I'm Motivated!

Here are my WIP's for the new year...If you are aware, a number of them are years old.  I have done lots in between, but for some reason kept passing these up.  So excited to finally get them done...Then maybe I can sleep nights or die peacefully!

Since I LOVE seeing what others are doing I will be posting the beginning and progress photos.  I will also be starting others this year as I just can't put off doing some of those new ones I just love!  Not sure if it is okay to add so many photos.  Someone let me know if this is a problem please!

  1. Oh Peggy!! I got excited when I saw Carolines Sampler by Serendipity...I have actually stitched this sampler and it is gorgeous~~ It was given to a friend of mine and it has always been on my list to stitch a second time (some day...)...I love some of these older pieces on your challenge list!! Faye

  2. Peggy -

    What a great list you have! I saw A Secret Garden on here from Lauren Sauer. Hope you get to that project this year. I absolutely love that, but don't know whether I am talented enough to stitch and finish that.

    I stitch with Lauren a couple of times a month, so I'll show her any progress you might make on this (no pressure). How much do you have stitched so far?


  3. Will take a photo...Not doing the whole thing, just the main section. Made a minor error and for some reason it stopped me in my tracks. :o(
