2013...The Year Of Unfinished Business

Hello Friends,
I hope that everyone has had a wonderful start to 2013. I know that many of you started new projects. I would love to do that but by the title of my post you can tell that I am going to try to finish WIPs, UFOs and to stash stitch.
So without further ado....

1st unfinished business
I am late letting you know who will receive my gently used Jenny Bean Halloween Sampler chart. Of the 7 Stitchers interested the Random Number generator picked #6 Jonette. Please email me Jonette with your address so that I can get the chart in the mail to you.

2nd unfinished business....



I made some progress on this LHN ornament. It was my final ornament for the Christmas All Year Long Ornament SAL. I need to get it finished, pretty close now.

3rd unfinished business



I need to finish up Marietta. She has been languishing since summer. Once I finish her I can go play with the Scarlet Letter SAL Stitchers and work on my Bristol Orphanage sampler.
I have joined in the Halloween all year long ornament SAL. I do need to add to my stitched pieces for fall. This month's theme is pumpkin. I have to pull my stuff together to start a small piece.

That's it from here. Back to work tomorrow. They are going to start reorganizing and putting new shelving in at work this week then new computers the following week. It is going to be a busy month.

Peace

Finish those WIPs that are lying around - that's my plan, too. But I can't do without some new starts, lol.
Love your WIPs, good luck with finishing them.

Your WIPs look great and not too much to finish! I have to do the same here, I know I left some things in the dust and may need to pull them out once more!

You know Chris, so many say it, but it is great to see you doing it! Good for you. They look wonderful. =)

Good luck with the finishing of projects etc - I wish I had some will power on that front. I don't think I'm as bad as I used to be but I've still got a long way to go to improve.

Loraine said...

All of your samplers will look wonderful when they are finished! I'm cheering you on. :) Have a great New Year.

Christina said...

Oh dear, 'languish' should be my middle name! PerhapsI should join you in your quest. Good luck with the challenge!

Karoline said...

Your wips are lovely

Happy new year to you both :)

Susan said...

Beautiful WIPs. From the blogs I've read it sounds like "unfinished business" is the theme for a lot of people this year - me included.

Annette-California said...

Nicola said...

Marietta is such a pretty sampler, Ilove the name and the design.

Looking forward to you coming to play.

I love your current WIPs. Very nice. Can't wait to see how you finish.

Lovely wips.

Happy New Year!

Mary said...

I love both of the WIP, not much left on either!

Suzanne said...

Mmm, maybe that's what my resolution should be for this year, again! I have many unfinished projects that just need to get done.
