Final 2007 Finish




Here is my final finish of 2007. Salem Sister's by Plum Street Samplers. It was done as a SAL with Ranae and Lizzy . Ranae, speedy stitcher that she is finished first. I don't know if Lizzy got the chance to finish hers. This was stitched on days gone by linen by Silkweaver with V. Clayton silks in deep purple, inky depths, and fire dragon. Conversion courtesy of Terri . She does great conversions to Vikki's silks. I enjoyed this SAL, even though I am such a slow SAL partner. Thanks for the invitation Ranae!

I completed 23 or 24 projects this year, I can't find my notebook at this moment to be sure. This is the most I have ever completed in one year! I think that being inspired by all of you my wonderful stitching friends and your fabulous stitching projects has moved me stitch more ;) I am not going to post any goals, but I will post a list of some of the things I would like to stitch and they are as follows:

African Lady-currently working on this
Valentine Snippet-currently working on this too.
Still Waters
Dawn Fairy
LHN Coffee/Tea packs
Lizzie Kate Double Flips
African Beauties
Cirque de Circles
Fear Not
Halloween Lineup
Eloquent Christmas
Circe the Sorceress

I am sure there are many more! It will be interesting to see where I get with this list at the end of the year. I wish all of you health, wealth and happiness in 2008.


Happy New Year!!

Beautiful finish Sharon!! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog.

I love the Christmas Exchange piece you made, it's lovely.

I read back in your blog and saw that your daughter was ill in November, although it sounds like she is okay now. I hope she continues to do well.

Happy 2008 ;)

Happy New Year Sharon -

How brave of you to make a list of stitching projects. I'm so fickle, when I finish a projects I wade thru the stash to see what "grabs me" next. It's been a pleasure seeing all your great finishes (including this one) & I look forward to everything you have to come.

andrea said...

Happy New Year, Sharon. It's going to be a busy one, judging by all that planned stitching. I hope it's a good one too.

Hey, Sharon! Salem Sisters looks fantastic! Great finish. Have a wonderful New Year!

You had a great stitching year in 2007, Sharon, including that wonderful finish!! Here's to many more such finishes in 2008. :D

Hazel said...

Well done on your finish! Some nice projects to work on there. xx

Dawn said...

Great finish! I hope you have a great stitching year in 2008:)

Dianne said...

What an unusual design and nicely stitched. You can't sneeze at 23-24 (well I could this past week)finishes. Not too shabby. I'm much, much slower. I found my paper crafting again and that slowed me down too.

Good luck with the 2008 list!

Sachiko said...

Congrats on your last finish of 2007!Beautiful finished!

Novice Stitcher said...

What an entertaining piece! It's so different. I live in New England and it sure is fitting for what happened in Salem. And I see below that you were the recipient of that wonderful tin Vonna made - lucky you! I love reading your blog.
