Redwork Tree Skirt- Part 2: Finish-Along here I come...

So... (Wait. I start a lot of blog posts with "So..." I really need to fix that. It's so boring.)

Here we go...

I have decided that 2014 is my year. I will turn 40 in April, & I am sick & tired of waiting for my life to start. I am living it right now. It is nearly half over, right? What am I waiting for? Change isn't coming. Change happens all the time. Whether we are expecting it or not.

This year I have already started another blog that I have been meaning to start for a few years now. I've started keeping a diary again. I re-worked my Etsy shop to focus only on embroidered portraits, child's drawings in embroidery, & embroidered hand prints. All custom orders. I'm continuing on the weight-loss/ healthy me journey I started in Sept 2012. (Thanks for the gym membership Mom & Dad!) & today, I am starting the Finish-Along project hosted by &Stitches!

What UFOs of the embroidery kind do I have lurking? Lots! The 1st requiring my immediate attention is the UnFinished Object know as my sistar's Christmas present.

Last night I finished the 4th panel of 8. 4 down, 4 to go! I think I may add some turquoise (DMC #3846) to the 2nd panel too!

Finished panels 2, 3, 4

Next step: tracing out panel #5 & get stitching!

BTW: There is no antonym for procrastination.

  2. Wow, I'm especially impressed that you are willing to stitch Christmassy things right after Christmas! It will be a very early finish for Christmas 2014 :D

    1. Definitely an early finish for 2014! Thanks for the finish-along idea!

  3. I'm with Nicole: impressed that you're stitching Christmas stuff in January! :-)

    1. I always mean to work on Christmas stuff throughout the year so I don't get behind... I'm glad I have finished it finally. Thanks for the finish-along idea!


Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear from you.
