12 years

that is the age of my oldest WIP. I had completely forgotten this little jewel until I was sorting projects and found it this past week. So with new found resolve, I pulled it out to stitch this past weekend. Sadly I manged only one tiny over one stitch late last night before I realized my eyes were not up for the challenge. So it  shall be my March goal to complete the ..... Dogwood Stitchery project by Moss Creek designs.  Only the green portion of the needle roll is completed. Hopefully I can find more time this week in the evening to work on the piece. Now that the ugly truth is out in the open my question is, what is your oldest project still not complete? Can any of you beat 12 years? I think there are only 6 pieces that are WIP and one of them was completed last week. In Virtues Way by Chessie and Me. It was only 2 years old. The fruitful labor of  days in the gym watching my sons wrestling matches and tournaments. I am on a quest to complete my WIP before 2011 is complete so we shall see how that goes. No new starts until I am done.

all confessed out,

in the beginging

Off to a slow start, building this has taken most of the morning and I feel certian it is lacking creative design. Hopefully I will live and learn in the land of blogs and improve the content and appearance of the page. Enough of that, I am here for stitching talk. My current large project is "I sigh not for Beauty" by C Street Designs. I would say I am about 75% towards the goal of a lovely sampler to hang on the wall above my master bed. The space has been void for far to long. (we are talking years here folks). Like most I have an ever so slight obsession with smalls. I have several of those dreaded but oh so lovely needlecase sets and etuis in progress as well. Gingerbread Tree Etui by the Victoria Sampler from my visit to the Enfield Shaker Museum this past October. Thea was a delightful instructer and I am looking forward to a return retreat this fall. Check out the  site at Marie and Nataly were wonderful hostess for the weekend event. This has taken enough of my stitching time for today and I still have to figure out how to add those blog links
