What a day I had. Jo,I had too much fun - also too much frustration. I really do know why some of these projects are WIPS.... I had originally selected 19 WIPS. I worked on 14 of them. I thought I had a great plan and was very organized when I started. Had a few stumbles along the way. I am posting pictures only of the work completed. Most of these before pic are on some page/post in my blog but in 1/2 of stitching - not much stitching difference but lots of insight. Please enjoy the pictures, no need to read all my descriptions - I wrote a lot of this for me - to help me organize my WIPS.
Trying to keep the pictures small - In Order of how I stitched. This is tribal wine glass. Started 2012 maybe 2013. stitched 3 little parts in the middle of glass - around the heart.
Thoughts After Stitching: Am starting over with different fabric and different thread different colors would like it to look like a glass of red wine.
My 40 count -- I just continued on the very last EVIL White Stripe. Again ripping out more than I stitched. I am determined to finish this little tiny project no matter what!!!!!
This is when I broke for Lunch with my Sister's who took me out for a wonderful Birthday Lunch.
Around the World in 80 Stitches. I completed nothing. I have only the outline of the very first heart done. I hate the fabric I started this on. And I am going to restart this one on a different fabric I think I really want to finish this because of all the Specialty Stitches.
My Final piece of the day:
If you have made it this far you have made it to the end of the day. I kept out my most current wips to the last - and did not stitch on my RWB Nutcraker, God Bless America, my two LaDDa projects they are my most recently started and unfinished WIPS.
That is all for this post. I do hope it will not take me so long a to pick up these projects again. I have been in the New Start Something Small Enough To Finish mode - so we will see where my 2nd half of 2016 Stitching Joy takes me. My goals are set 90% of the time with no END DATE. So we will see. Once again thank you Jo
