Stitching and Life in the Company of Pets

Quick Finish

Just a quick entry today. I finished Chocolate Covered Cherries. Of course there really wasn't much left to do on this. The only part left from before was the bottom border and the confetti stitches in the middle. However, given the other stuff I had going this holiday weekend I was pleased to have gotten it finished.

This gives me 5 finishes so far this year. 1 tiny, 1 small, 1 medium, and 2 that are fairly good size (at least for me). I don't really have very many stitching goals, but two that I did have were to try and finish at least one more than last year, and try to have a couple of larger projects in the mix. Since last year I had 12 (not counting my camp badge and a knitted scarf) having 5 so far this year, and two of them a little larger than normal (again at least for me), is doing pretty good along that goal. For purposes of this I decided not to count my camp badge, as if I did I really would need to count it for last year as well, so I'd end back up at the same place.

Still haven't settled on what my new focus project will be, so at the moment I'm still working on Dogs of Duckport. I'll post a picture of that later this week.

Hope everyone had a safe and fun filled holiday.

    Oh, my but you must have magic needles, Sue! You've just been whipping out these last two projects so quickly and so beautifully! Chocolate Covered Cherries is so lovely and will be so pretty hanging in your kitchen with Ye Olde Chocolate Shoppe! :-)

    Have you decided on what to start next? I have several others I am itching to start... but with 7 WIP's on the go... {not counting the monthly Ornament SAL and my PIF's} I really don't think I should... lol

    Oh, and if you have a spare magic needle how about sending it my way? I could so use one about now! :-)

    Hey sweetie, this looks lovely! Well done you on having so many finishes - I wish I could say the same, but as you've probably seen on my blog, I'm going to remedy that with all my little side projects that I'll run alongside 'Phoenix'! I've had a fab Easter - hope you did too xx

    Chocolate Covered Cherries looks great.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I am adding yours to my blogroll so I can come back regularly. The Phyto Oestrogen cake may help with menopause symptoms:) I am giving it a try rather than take HRT. I tried my first piece last night and it is quite nice. Lots of seeds, nuts and raisins in it:)
