A Small Finish and False Start

Here is a picture of a small finish: Craft Collection - Orchard Cottage

I tried to start Dimensions - Too Pooped by Charles Wysocki but the piece of fabric in the kit was too small, not enough border on the sides, so I will have to substitute it. Anyway back to Death By Cross Stitch which I am really enjoying.

Happy New Year!

Have been going through my WIPs and decided to put several projects on hold for the time being.

I will be focusing on my oldest WIP, Ribbons & Bows (HAED) and Puppies on a Shelf (PaineFreeCrafts).  I have also purchased Death by Cross Stitch (Long Dog Samplers) which I will be starting shortly when I can make up my mind on the fabric & floss combination
