wipocalypse post ( a little late...)

Do we sense a theme here?

Anyway, I've decided to join in this year, because, even though I know that I will be starting new things throughout the year, I really do want to focus on getting some WIPs finished.

And I'm off to a good start. This is a design from ByGone Stitches  called Autumn Quaker Seasons and it is now finished...yay! Actually, I am kind of sad to see it done because I really enjoyed stitching this piece. It is stitched on a beige-y evenweave with threads from Carrie's Creations - Mud Pie, Toasted Marshmallow, and Koala Claw (silk). I started it last January,


This month, we are supposed to introduce ourselves. I've lived in Oregon for the past 22 years, originally from New York. I'm married with two grown daughters and one amazing grandson who is 7 years old. We also currently have two dogs and one cat who let us share their space. I'm a librarian, and am seriously thinking about retirement, maybe in the next year or so. I love to spend my time stitching (duh!); reading cozy mysteries; watching sports and British TV shows; listening to music and finding new places to explore. There is a tab on my blog called "Stitching Plans for 2016". There you will see a list of some of the WIPs I hope to stitch on this year, as well as some other goals...like an ornament a month...I still have 5 days to get January's done!

Hope everyone is having a stitchy day!

  3. Oh great, Lynda, you did it! This is a wonderful finish and I love the colours you used for it. Isn't it a nice feeling to have accomplished such a big project? Great job! And when you will be retired you will have more time for stitching and it will be so great. I know what I am talking about :)
