Some WIPs










To the right is my Little House Needlework SAL, "Home of a Needleworker." I've been so busy with my eBay sales, I haven't had all that much time to stitch, so some of my WIPs' progress are downright pathetic.





This is fun to pick up now & then, even if the season isn't right. Mill Hill's Scaredy Cats. I love the convenience of having everything together to use in one package.



This is the most pathetic thing I've started! Why is it that a person can frog a simple start 4 times and still not get it right, causing one to put it away in frustration. This is a Prairie Schooler Santa SAL, and thank goodness I only committed to two for the entire year. You would never know I've been stitching for 25 years.

And oh, how I do love this one I recently started---The Trilogy's "Winter Lineup" for my daughter, who dearly loves penguins.

Every stitch in a WIP is a step forward, don't forget that! :) I laughed at your PS frogging ... I was the same yesterday with my Pyramid Etui one ... I've now stitched the tied oblong stitch border 3 times (let's just say that now it's been put away for a day or two for my sanity LOL). Your WIP's are all lovely, but I especially love the winter line-up and MH ones - they're great designs :D

Glad to see that you did get to stitch even a little! It's progress, however small. :D

Lovely WIPs Nancy. It doesn't matter how little you get done at least you're doing some!

You've got great projects at are nearing completion like your coz! I love the 'House of a Needleworker' (have to get that one) and the penguin one too-I love them too thanks to 'March of the Penguins'. I would like to do at least a couple of PS Santas in my lifetime. Maybe I should start on soon.
Thanks for sharing and the inspiration!

Your WIP's look great! I love doing those Mill Hill kits. And I just finished the same PS Santa that you are showing, all except for his cheeks as I can't seem to find that colour of DMC anywhere. Don't you hate it when you are short of just one thing!

All of your WIP's are looking lovely, Nancy! :-) I'm sorry that old frog leapt onto your lily pad... I promise I didn't send him! ;-) And please don't be discouraged, Hun... every wee stitch is one step further to a finish! :-)

I love Home of a Needleworker and Winter Lineup... They are both on my Wish List... :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog... your kind words are so inspiring...

PS: What fabric are you stitching Winter Lineup on? It's perfect! :-)
