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.

A Finish and a pillow

I finally finished Romeo and the Chicks I di do a pillow however I think the ruffle is a little large, my Husband thinks it is just right, it will have to stay I am not going to take it apart.
I bought this started project last october at retreat in an auction the threads and pattern were all there, someone had started it and did not want to finish it, lucky me. It is done on 14 count I very rarely and I mean rarely use 14 count, but it turned out pretty good.
The person who started this had stitched most of the blue hen and a little of the red hen, I would have had it finished a long time ago but had so much more that I need to stitch for gifts and my Blackbird Designs Exchange.
I also made valances and other things for the house, so stitching took a back seat some days.
I hope you in the U.S. had a great 4th, to all other around the world I hope all is well.
