WIP pictures





hi all!
Well, I haven't had many finishes, but I have been stitching!!!! Stitching is so much more enjoyable now that the splint is off of my finger & it isn't quite so tender!!!! It is still very stiff, but time will help, I HOPE!!!
I hope the pictures show up in the order I am going to talk about them!!!
First, is Christmas Village by Victoria Sampler. I fell in love with this when it first came out & I still feel the same for it! I am stitching it on Sassysfabby's winter blues.
Next is the birth sampler for the triplets. It is a triplet sampler. I am working on the border. I love the design!
Next, is my B. Potter SAL piece. I added a few motifs recently. I love working this piece, because each motif adds a new dimension to the piece.
Lastly, is one I started while babysitting yesterday. I love stitching the alphabet, so this one is perfect!!!! I love the color combo I picked. Sassy's crescent cream lugana & a silk floss called lasagna!!!!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!! I am working on kitting up a few more projects---WHY>!>!>!

So glad you're able to get in some stitching, especially on Christmas Village. I so want to stitch that one some day. :)

Those are really some nice WIP's. I love the Christmas village one too.

I'm stitching a Christmas Village too, but it would become an UFO. When I see yours, I think I will pick up mine again too.

Hugs,
Wendy

Your stitching looks great. But I think the pictures are out of order - from your post.

Hi Shari
Your wip's are looking good and I'm glad to hear your finger is getting better.

I wonder if I could ask you a question about the MaryWigham blog? I'm trying to set one up for my EGA chapter and can't figure out how to set up the Contributors section. Any assistance would be appreciated. This is totally new to me and I'm kind of just winging it. Thanks!

I love your Christmas Village. I would love to do this one to hang near my christmas village. I am happy to see your WIPs. I have come to grips for myself that WIPS are ok, in fact they are great. I had been starting to feel really guilty about having so many WIPS. I inventoried them on my blog and promise to be a better blogger, I think that will help with some finishes.
