Another Small Finish

As I've mentioned in past entries this year, my desire is to finish the things I have started!  Projects that are sitting in my stitching basket, some for a very long time!

First up my small finish!  I can't remember when I started this, I know it was sometime this year.  For some reason with this piece I just kept dragging my feet!  Well I buckled down this week and got it finished!

Welcome Freebie
c Prarie Schooler
Stitched over one on 32ct Queen Ann's Lace Joblean
Stitched with DMC

So what am I working on next?  I liked 'Tis Green so much... I started it again!  This time in a different shade of Caron Waterlillies, Winter Wheat.

Not only have I had the desire to stitch 'Tis Green again, I've wanted to work on a piece I started back in 2006.  I worked on this piece very briefly when I started it, but lately I've been getting the urge to do more over one!  This is The Accolade a design from Gitta's.  I'm stitching it one over one on 25ct lugana.  Doesn't look like much does it?

You've been busy! All of that over one stuff... it may not look like much, but it sure takes a lot of time. Congrats on your finish. :)

Brigitte said...

You've been stitching up a storm. I loved to see all the finishes in your last post. And another one here. Congratulations.
Your newe starts look promising. Looking forward to seeing the over one piece grow.

Is the Accolade the pre-Raphelite painting of a knight being knighted? You're right, it doesn't llok like much *yet* - enjoy stitching it :)

Hazel said...

Lovely finishes. I know what you mean about getting stuff finished which is why #i have taken the six month pledge to have no new starts - well okay so i did start one new thing but I have two big finishes up to now! x

After your Celestial Dragon, it must feel nice to have a few small finishes done so quickly. I shall look forward to future posts of Accolade ... having done a bit of one-over-one, I know just how much time was involved stitching your progress to date.

Great little finishes Dani. It feels good to get this stuff out of your bag doesn't it!

Donna said...

Every time I think about cleaning out my old stash and getting rid of things I haven't stitched on in years, I read a post like yours. Everything looks wonderful!

Erna said...

Great finishes...I hear a lot of ladies about finishing this year...perhaps it's the Finishing Year :)

Good for you getting to those, "left behind" projects. I really need to do the same. Thanks for bringing that to mind...it'll relax me too I am sure!

Bette said...

I'm hoping to make a start on finishing my UFO's. Maybe that will be next year's major undertaking. Your welcome is lovely. Prairie Schooler is one of my favorites.

Lynn said...

Congrats on your finishes Dani.
Good for you, digging out your UFOs like that. I'm looking forward to seeing your progress on Accolade.

Congrats on getting some of your long-standing projects finished!!! What a great feeling that is (so I've heard, lol!) And that little PS over 1...gorgeous!

Daffycat said...

Beautiful stitching, Dani! Your over-one's are really neatly stitched! That Winter Wheat color is lovely...this is going to be just as pretty as the one done in Royal Jewels!

My biggest challenge is finishing my old BAPs. I've got several new ones I want to start, but it's hard to sit down and work on the older ones. I tend to finish smaller projects instead.

Elaine said...

Congrats on getting some of your ufo;s finished Dani. Just love the Prairie Schooler. Good luck with the others.

Lesleyanne said...

Congratulations on your finishes. They are all gorgeous.

Carol said...

I love your tiny PS finish, Dani! I'm an over one addict and proud of it :)

Dee said...

Winter Wheat is a gorgeous color too!

Sylvia said...

Dani, These are beautiful finishes. Accolade is a beautiful piece and an ambitious one to do over one. I look forward to seeing your progress on it. You are an awesome stitcher. I am still speechless when I look at your Celestial Dragon. You asked if I will be at the retreat next weekend. Unfortunately no since I am throwing a 60th birthday party for DH. Quite a milestone and all the family is coming to town. Enjoy the retreat and give everyone my regards.

Annie said...

It's fun to take a break from the BAP's to do the smalls. Love the over-one on the PS freebie. So delicate!

Charlene ♥ SC said...

I love to do things I can finish -- that sense of accomplishment wins most times for me! Plus, they're so cute!!

Myra said...

I love that Tis Green pattern too. Wow! That teeny tiny PS piece is so cute!

Olenka's Stitches said...

Love your one over one stitching. Congrats on the lovely finish!

Christine said...

Love the PS over 1, looking forward to watching The Accolade progress

Julie said...

The welcome finish is so cute.

Melanie said...

Whoa! Very impressive over-one finish! My eyes are crossing just thinking about stitching it.

Nice little finish!
