Successful Stitching February


Focus on a Finish in February Theme-tas-stitch 2017

Success - Here is my Easter Egg Finish.  I had a bunch of extra stitching time this month - I came down with something I couldn't shake, and was out of work for three days.  I really to love it when I am too sick for work, but not too sick to stitch.  This is one of the first projects I started on evenweave, I think I started this sometime after March 2009 - this is the issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework this chart appeared in. The designer is Ursula Michaels.  This is one of my Year Of Wips projects - 8 completed now.  Working on these older projects is wearing on me of late - so I am going to switch gears for the month of March.  The theme for March Madness - stitch on many many things, so I am going to start a few of the "bigger projects" on my Want To Do List.



This next finish is a freebie - Elizabeth Designs, given to me at my LNS.  It is totally stitched from stash - the fabric - you can't tell I think is 14 count Minty Green aida.  Oh my goodness, I have had this aida a very long time.  The thread is from Fiberlicious Yummy Fibers It is called Berry Bouquet.  Living with the stripes, the colors are really do look like Spring to me.


Then I started and Finished Luck be With you, HomeSpun.  This was in my stash just waiting for me.  Have a couple more February New Starts, I hope to have finished before the Small Sal check in on Friday.  I hope to be able to share my plans for March Madness at that time.  


March is my Stitchers Retreat.  Looking forward to meeting Isabella from the  Primitive Hare and enjoying an All About Me Weekend.

  4. Wow! Excellent finish and you deserve to stitch on whatever you want after finishing 8 WIPs.. wow, I've completed one this year. Love the thread on Spring as well, it's like pansies somehow.

  6. Wohoo on finishing one of your long-term WIPs. And in time before Easter. I can easily understand that you need to start someone projects now. I'M exactly the same although I do love stitching on my WIPs a lot.
    Great finish on your first two starts. The thread colour you used on Spring is just gorgeous. Now I'm curious to see your next starts.

  8. That sounds like the best kind of illness! Hope you're better now. I love your Easter basket and we'll done on completing 8 WIPS! I am also trying to reduce my WIP/UFO list which is soon to be 7 but they are mostly huge projects.
    I haven't decided yet what to do about March Madness but as I've spent almost of February on the same piece I'm looking forward to some variety!

  12. Congratulations on the Hoppy Dance for the Easter Eggs. You are sorted for my next blog hop!
    Love the two smalls too, especially the Spring thread colour.
    Have a wonderful time with Isabella, tell her I wish I could be with you both! She is also to blame for my Cube obsession, after finishing 18 cubes for Hallowe'en and Christmas!
