SAL finish

I finished the Winter part of the Novalee2 SAL last night, for my second finish of the year. I am MAKING myself finish some of my WIPS/UFO's this year. It is silly to have so many projects started & not finished. Yes, I just bought all of those containers, but I have a goal.....as I finish something, I get to put something 'ready to start' in the empty container!! See, there is a method to the madness!!!! I have already put something in this container!!
I pulled out the LK piece that I rescued from someone's sale blog a while back. I will see how much I can do on it, before deciding to work on something else that has been started or something new!!!
I hope you are having a great week/weekend!!!

Beautiful finish, Shari!

Nice finish and a good idea to replace a new start when you finish one...I'm just never that organized as to what I want to stitch next! PS I figured out how to add TABS to my home page on blogger!!!

It turned out beautiful!

I have this SAL in a notebook and it never occured to me to pull it out for 2012's Crazy January Challenge!
Really lovely!

I loved this "Remember When" tune. I listened to the entire song and so related to it, Who is singing? Wish I knew a little more about this blogging stuff to add music to it.....bsturtz@blogspot.com

Ha Ha--I like your reasoning about finishing one thing and replacing it with another, Shari! Makes total sense to me :)

Your finish is so pretty--lovely colors and how nice to have your second finish of the year under your belt (I haven't even done my first yet!!)

Oh Shari, this looks just gorgeous. I have always loved this SAL piece and I really regret not to have joined the SAL. It's a wonderful piece.

Hi Shari, thanks for stopping by my new blog. You mentioned in your comment about the Leslie Sansone walking videos... yes, trying to keep the new year resolution going, best way with the cold winter weather outside. :)

Your stitching is beautiful! I know what you mean, I keep starting new projects. I seem to want to make everything at once and now I need to organize!
Happy Sunday!
