Stitching Plans and Dreams 2015

Finally, I am posting,  if  I posted as much as I thought about posting to my blog you would tell me to please stop! Why do I worry about it you say?  I still like blogging, I just feel that I am a boring blogger...that is not to generate any sympathy, but just how I feel. Anyway, lets get on with the program! This post has been hanging in my inbox as a draft for quite some time so bear with me.   So this year, I am not joining the Wipocalypse. I was a terrible participant, as I never kept up with any of the postings. It was fun to see everyone's progress and I also came across some great new blogs. I didn't finish very much this year and blogged even less than last year, however I still love my stitching and I have no plans to stop blogging for the time being. Ha! she says!  I do hope to stitch more and by making this list, hope that it will motivate me! (I am motivated, motivated to buy more!) So, the list is long and for my slow (think tortoise or perhaps slug) self quite crazy! Don't judge-lol!

So without further ado here is my 2015 and beyond dream stitching list (* means they are in progress)

I am sure I could add more to this crazy list, so many beautiful patterns and so little time. Such fun to see in black and white, to hope, dream and perhaps create just a small amount of some of the loveliness on this list.

Now, I still belong to a couple of clubs, Colonial Gathering, The Prim Ladies and Stacy Nash, so I have some kits from last year to throw in the mix, and let's not forget what may come up during the year...
Here are a couple of works in progress that I hope to complete soon!

This is Antique Sampler 1861 by Blackbird Designs from their book In Friendships Way. I am stitching it on 32 count vintage lentil linen by Lakeside with the recommended Gentle Arts and Classic Colorworks threads!

This is Willow House by Blackbird Designs being stitched on a 30 count linen by R&R reproductions. I don't remember the name. It's darker in real life. It's being stitched with Gentle Arts and Weeks Dye Threads 

That's all for now, I hope to be back sooner than later and thanks for visiting if you have lasted this long! Blessings to you!

Your to do list is fabulous!!!! We have the same taste for sure. I keep going back and forth between just working on one thing and/or working on 5 different things. It really is a good problem to have!!

Hello Sharon! That IS a crazy list. I had to laugh. I do that too with lists and think "how on earth will I be able to do all that?" It's fun dreaming. I see lovely progress on your WIPs!

Keep blogging, whenever you can!

What is it about stitchers that we love so much to make a list?

Brigitte said...

Welcome back, Sharon. It's always so nice to read your news and I'm glad that you do not intend to stop stitching and blogging.

You have some great projects on the go - and even more on your list for this year. I also love making this kind of stitching plans and my lists are also full to the brim - needless to say that I never stick to it. But I don't care as both is fun - making this list and going away from it, lol.

Lots of nice things of your list for the rest of the year.
