Another Finish


I have another finish to brag about. I am kidding but it's been so long since I've had two finishes in a year, that it does feel a little like a celebration here. I'd been in a stitching slump for so long, it felt like I would never get back to stitching like I had done before. And it wasn't like I was doing anything productive. It was either computer games (which is still a major time waster in my world) or reading (which is NOT a time waster in my mind). I just had a real hard time getting back into the routine of stitching. But with the poppies done, I decided to concentrate on getting the Lizzie Kate I had started several months ago finished. I do think I like sticking to one piece at a time as opposed to a rotation of projects. That way I feel like I've actually accomplished something and not scattered my energies around. I also have so many UFO's stuck in a drawer that I would like to get out and finish. I think maybe next year will be the year of the UFO. Anyway, back to the Lizzie Kate. It's called Time for God and I really like what it says. I stitched it on cognac linen with sampler and Weeks threads. I did change a couple of the colors because we didn't have what the pattern called for. I really like this one. For right now it's going in the FUPPY box in the closet until I save up enough to frame it.

Great job! This one is on my wish list so I'm glad to see it stitched up to confirm I'm making a good choice.

Great finish Bette! Congrats on two finishes so far this year! I like working on one project at a time, and I tend to focus on one project at a time as well. I find I get so much more done this way and a greater sense of accoplishment!
