2017 Year in Finishes

Looking back over 2017 it’s been one crazy year, just not as crazy as 2016. I enjoyed lots of travel and networking with lots of stitching friends. I attended Galleria in St Charles MO in August and got back to Shipshewana IN in October.
I’ve created some fun finishes this year.
My stitching mojo seemed to start last November and this is what I’ve finished in 2017.

2014: New Year, New Finishes

It's been quite a while since I've posted about any stitching, but I hope to keep up a little better this year and update when I have some finishes. So far I've finished four pieces. I'm also working on several others and making good progress and weeding thru the collection. GOALS, it's all about GOALS! Let's hope that 2014 will be a year I can reach some of those goals I have set.

Finishes of 2013

Wooly Hare
Ewe & Eye and Friends Kit
Adorably easy and fun to stitch. Too bad that EEF
couldn't provide enough Shepherd's Silk with the kit.
Thread Gatherers came thru for me and I was able
to finish it without ripping out what I had done.
Thanks Cici.
