The other day while going thru a box of stitching projects I came across a WIP that I started in 1997. It was a project from de la Tour Designs called The Tinsel Fairy Mouse and was in the 1997 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. I had all but the wings stitched on it and actually had a small part of the wings done. I ended up unpicking the silver floss that I had stitched and restitched it using a floss that I like to work with better. I am happy to say that it is no longer a WIP and is a completed project.
I guess you could say that finishing the old WIP has inspired me to finish more WIPs so I am going to try to dedicate the year at least partly to WIPs. Now I am not saying I am not going to be starting new projects and that I am setting a goal to finish all my WIPs but I am going to at least give it a shot.
Here is a list of some of my current WIPs that I hope to work on.
1- One Froggy Christmas- 4 out of 8 are done.
2- Month By Month by Sunflower Seeds- 9 out of 12 are done.
3- A Year of Events, Dimensions kit- 5 out of 12 are done.
4- On Christmas Day by Cat's Whiskers- 3/4 of the way done.
I am sure I will come across more as I go through things but those are the ones I have in mind right now. I know of a few others but they are not a priority right now.
Hope everyone is having a good New Year and I hope to keep you more up to date on my blog.
