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.

Who is this woman and what is she doing finishing my projects?

My, my ... it's January 12 and I have finished two projects!!!!! First up, Polar Bear Snow Globe by Bent Creek. Sorry, no photo as of yet. Off to the framer I go! One down, 15 to go!

The next finish wasn't on my long list of 15 but it was something I had started at the close of 2010 so I turned it into 15A! It was a little "Mad Scientist/Stitcher" experiment I undertook. It went so much better than that time in college when I came pretty darn close to blowing up a chemistry lab (it wasn't my fault, really! And yes, I did change majors after that.) It's Lizzie Kate's "Don't Get Your Tinsel in a Tangle." OK. If I'm going to tangle my tinsel, I want it to look like tinsel! So some big ol' 10-count Tula, a handful of #5 perle cottons and a card of Precious Metals by Rainbow Gallery and voila, I tangled my tinsel. The photo was snapped before I had snipped the ends of the bow on the package. Now to decide how I'm going to finish it. Decisions, decisions!

Happy stitching to everyone! I'm off to find a project that proves I can stitch on something besides 18-count linen or 10-count tula! : )

  1. Really like the tinsel idea...and great job on the finishes!


  2. What a great idea for the tinsel! That's something I'll tuck away in my mind for future reference.

  3. Just an FYI if anyone gets a hankering to tangle some tinsel, you only need to execute a half stitch when working with Precious Metals on 10-count fabric.

  4. What a great job! Love the tinsel idea (she says as she jots it down for future reference).
