My Sunday Stitchy Update

Happy New Year and Welcome to 2016!

I hope you all had a great New Year celebration!  My family spent the evening in our pjs, playing board games, watching movies and eating junk.  I fell asleep around 11:20 and woke up in time to see the ball drop with everyone else.  As soon as that happened though we were all off to bed to dream of all the wonderful things that await us in the new year.

Well now for the stitching!

I am proud and happy to say that I have my first finish for 2016!

Introducing...

Wizard of Oz
Designer - Lesley Teare
Finished 01/03/16

I really wanted to finish that one in 2015 but I just couldn't get it in. So I am extra happy that it is finally finished now!  Now to find the perfect frame and mat for it so I can give it to Tia.

That is one UFO off my UFO challenge!  I wish I could knock them all off that fast this year - haha!  Only 5 more to go on my personal challenge. 

I also started two new pieces on New Year's day for a Stitching Challenge I am in with a Yahoo group.

Twisted Rainbow Sampler
Progress as of 01/01/16

Fun Every Day
Progress as of 01/01/16

Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!

Absolutely stunning! What a finish this is! You were doing a great job and I know how long it takes to finish such a huge design because I love stitching big projects myself.
Two nice new starts.
