First Finish


I was hoping this would be my last finish of 2011, but it turned out to be my first finish of 2012! I finished "Stitcher's Prayer" by Barrick Samplers/CHS last night while watching more of Agatha Christie's Tommy and Tuppence on Netflix. This is the year I get serious about blocking and framing. Yep. This. is. the. year. As opposed to all those other years I said it - this is the year. I think this piece will be a good piece to start with: it is not that much bigger than the pinkeeps I have made, and there is no finger nail polish spillage to try and hide.

Now to get going with my rotation! To start, I have included several WIP's and one BAP (or Big Hinney Project, if you prefer) that I committed to at Becky's Stitching Hive. I plan on adding pieces after each cycle. I also plan on taking a few Prairie Schooler and BBD smalls to work on in the car. We'll see won't we, but I am happy with the start I have made!

What a gorgeous finish Michele. LOVE it. Love the colors.
And what great plans. May be you inspire me to finally stitch a bit more of Prairie Scholer, which charts I collect but somehow rarely stitch.
