A finish!



Regatta by Cross Eyed Cricket Collection.  Stitched on 32ct Cafe Mocha Country French linen with DMC floss.
This one is a tough one to photograph because it is so long.  I started it a while ago and finished it last week.  I just got around to photographing it a couple of days ago.  I will post some WIP pics tomorrow.  I have a SAL and some new model stitching I am working on.  I have been reading lots of blogs the last couple of weeks and I find lots of you have startitis.  I don't, I just want to finish what I have started.  I do have lots of new ones in the pipeline to start but have held off so that I can clear up some WIPs.  There is one that I may not hold off on and that is With Thy Needle's Mystery Sampler.  It seems as if everyone is working on this one and the colors are BEAUTIFUL.  Maybe I will reward myself with this one once I finish another WIP. 
                  I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day.  Dont' forget to join in on my giveaway.  You must leave a comment on the previous post before June 2nd.  Happy Stitching!!!

Congrats on Regatta. Have this one in my stash, but, like you, am trying to finish up some BAPs first.

This is a really cute design! Is there a rower in your family?
Mystery Sampler has piqued my interest as well but I've held off for now. I've already begun a new start and I want to finish off some of my WIP too.

What a cute finish. Congrats!!! Love those colors and also the fabric you chose for it. Matches all very well.
And you're right - I know the feeling of wanting to have some WIP's reduced first. I'm trying too to not have too much started at once.
I slip sometimes though...lol.

How cute, Nataly! I've never seen this one before...

I'm having trouble resisting that Mystery Sampler myself, but oh, I have way too many things in my stash at the moment...
