WIPs of Shame

I'll start with my progress on NLH;  it looks like it should go a little faster once I get through this page.

After reading Alicia's comment on my last post, I felt the need to display my weakness for shiny new starts.  I used to be a dedicated one project gal, but something went awry about 7 years ago.  My current WIP's:

There is my current sock of 3, going on 4, months, HAED Dress of Daydreams, HAED Sanctuary of Knowledge, my 15 sided biscornu ornament, Cross Stitch Pattern Gallery A Rock Garden, and Pollyanna's Lamplight Knotgarden (OOP).

And that is Victoria Sampler Autumn Romance, abandoned.  I still love them all and want to finish each one.  The HAED are just huge and full of confetti, so I get frustrated with lack of progress for time spent.  The chart for A Rock Garden drives me crazy, it's difficult to read.  And the others just suffer for lack of time and ambition. 

We won't discuss the want-to-do pile. 

We are getting a treat of warm sunshine and a wonderful spring day today.  And with any luck, tomorrow, too. 

Happy Stitching!



  1. Beautiful stitching on all your projects! I especially love your NLH. The colors are stunning!

  2. Compared to some other stitchers (me included) you do not have a large WIP pile! I understand why you get frustrated at so much confetti stitching but the results are worth it in the end. Try to never giver up and think of it as running a marathon by remembering that every stitch takes you a tiny bit closer to the finish. Chin up! You can do it!

  3. I had to go back and check my comment to make sure I didn't cause you any distress. Ok so you have a few wips, don't worry it's not a punishable offence otherwise I would be looking at a long stretch. You're doing really well with all of them. Some of mine have seriously 100 stitches before I've moved on. I love the jonquils too. Alicia xo

  4. That is not a list to be ashamed of--only 6?? Gee whiz--I can count 20 at least... lined up for 2014! There's lots more stashed away! Can you please email me--it's very important!

  5. Beautiful projects.... new starts, they are sneaky little things that just catch you by surprise don't they?
