Here are a few of the UFO's that I have had stashed away until I get around to finishing them. Just a few stitches and they will be ready to frame! I think the framing thing is intimidating, being so expensive and all. Also, finding a good framer in town can be a problem. Not everyone is good with needlework.

A Walk in the Woods, Cricket Collection

Here is the reason why this sampler was not finished...I miscounted somewhere along the line and went over by 1 little stitch on 2 motifs. I was thinking of fixing this, but have decided just to let it be.

Shepherd's Bush...I made this
early on in my daughter's skating.
Just Nan, Catnip Tea
Heart's Content, over 1 on tea dyed linen.

This is going to be my stitching blog. I am hoping this will help to keep me motivated to stitch, especially to finish projects. I am known for starting and not finishing, whether it be a stitching project (knitting, counted thread or sewing) or a household project, or any number of things I have tried.

As I get older, I am going to refocus on doing the things that have meant so much to me over the years. I am making my own so called "bucket list." There won't be anything outrageous or daring on the list, just simple things that will help me to feel better about myself. Maybe as time goes by I will broaden the scope of this list.

Pics to follow shortly...
