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.

My third challenge finish!~

After many years, this reproductive sampler is finished!!! I had hoped it would be a February finish for me.....This "up for a challenge" has motivated me SO much!!!

I present to you Elizabeth Emma Bice Wade Sampler~~

 Elizabeth Emma Bice Wade
Threads of Gold
40 ct creme linen
DMC threads

There are cross stitches, Algerian Eye stitches and 4 sided stitches in this sampler....The large flowered border is a favorite of mine....even if alot of the flowers were tedious being ecru stitched on creme fabric. 

Well, now I need to decide what wip will be my next victom treasure to rescue from the basket!

Have a great weekend everyone!!



  1. It is beautiful! Congratulations on another great finish.

  2. lol, are you really finishing so many pieces at once? How close were they to being done? You might be the fastest stitcher ever...

  3. Look at her Faye...she's lovely! And you are winning the race!!!!

  4. Beautiful piece! What a feeling it is to have three projects done...not three small projects, but three really amazing projects.

    You go girl!

  5. Con Queso makes a good point...Many of my Up for the challenge pieces were partially already done or maybe even half done...Never the less, I am trying to finish them up in 2011!! So, no, dont anyone think I am sitting down with blank linen and whipping all these large projects up overnight.... They have all been all laying around for a good while!! Thanks for the wonderful feedback everyone, Faye
