At exactly 11:45 last night I finished Prairie Moon's Holiday Farm!
I think I stitched this on the called for linen with all of the called for threads, and that I started this sometime around 2005 or 2006. If all goes according to plan, I will take this to the Hobby Lobby for a mat and a frame.
Well, I sat down in the cube room studio this afternoon and gathered all of the pieces for the Official Spinster Stitcher January Stitchy Reunion basket. Basically, I went through this here blog and wrote a list of everything I was stitching in January from 2009 to 2018 and pulled anything that was not completed yet.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover that I actually finished more than I thought I did! Here are the things that remained unfinished:
BRD It's Cold Outside
Big Red Sunflower
Shepherd's Bush Come Tarry
Richfield Designs needlepoint floral
The Drawn Thread Love & Wisdom
RM Winter Quakers
GP Red Velvet Cake
After all of that, I decided that nothng on the list really blows my skirt up, so I decided on a new start.
(OK...go ahead. You know you want to. Roll those eyes right up to heaven and say you told me so.)
I'm going to give this a go:
I was also a little fidgety, so I organized my needle minder collection:
And put my Ginghers next to my stitchy chair and switched out my stitchy tool box:
It's 6:30, Dearies, so I had better get my heiney in gear or the first day of the new year will pass without me putting a needle in my hand...yikes!
We're off to a good start! I hope the year ahead blesses us with all good things! Come tell me all about your wishes and what's in your stitchy basket!
