Almost a finish

I decided to continue to work on Winter Into Spring today. Now that I had it going again, I really wanted to get it done. But, it wasn't a day with many available stitching hours, so I could not quite get to the very end. I still need to do the beading from below spot motif band, as well as add the little heart bead next to the year. Then it will be all done. Well, maybe tomorrow before I start in on the LTD SAL... we'll see what time I get home from the office :-)

I noticed today that my DT Lily of the Valley is also at the halfway mark. I think I started that one even longer ago than Winter Into Spring! Why did I quit? No idea! It was either 1997 or 1998, because I can remember where I was when I started that one. I will find a time to finish it up really soon too!

And, that is about it... picked up some perennial phlox for alongside the driveway today. I think Mike will be planting it tomorrow, should look nice there :-)

Wow! That's amazing progress for someone who didn't have many available stitching hours! I think you should definitely get it finished before you start the SAL today - you're soooooo close now :)

What an amazing amount of work you've managed. I noticed you've managed to download the latest Gift of Stitching. I tried first thing this morning, but it just comes up as a blank page :( I've left them a message about it.

I love this piece - as well as the summer into autumn or whatever the companion one is! They looks so quick and fun!

Great progress!

That's so sweet Carol! I am glad you are pulling out some UFOs to finish up. I've got a few here and it does feel good to get them stitched up so you can start something new! ; )

Looks like we will be doing a HD soon for this one.

It looks great, Carol! I'm keeping my dancing shoes at the ready. :) I'm glad that you're finding some old WIPs that you are feeling inspired to stitch. Good stuff!

BTW, would you mind if I wrote to you personally and asked for your opinion on the psychology front?

Wow Carol that is a beautiful piece. Mermaids is looking fantastic. I have not stitched for about 4 weeks now, and hoping that seeing all your lovely work will get me back in the mood again.

Take care
