My Work In Progress (WIP)

Good Evening Everyone!
I planned on doing this post Friday morning but my DD1 texted me that she and my granddaughter were coming over in the morning so I wouldn't be able to play on the computer like I do most mornings :(

After I finished Welcome October I dug around and found another WIP from my Crazy January Challenge 2012 that I need to work on. (actually there are 6 that are not completed) Well the one that caught my eye was .........
The Best Things by Waxing Moon Designs
I started it on Jan 4, 2012 and put 347 stitches in it. It has not seen the light of day since I took it out Sept. 3, 2013. I worked on it Tuesday and Wednesday and this is what it looks like now.
The border and half of the mauve heart was done on the 4th of January the rest I completed on Tue & Wed.  Then this morning I am up digging around my sewing room looking for my fall decorations that I completed last year. But alas I got distracted and started looking at patterns, kits and other stuff when I came across an old WIP.
Beneath the Sunlit Sky by Blackbird Designs
The wording on this says
The Sea appears all golden
Beneath the Sunlit Sky
I put my DH and my initials in the upper corners and as you can see I stitched 2007 in the lower part. I have not decided if I am going the remove it and replace it with 2013 or not. What do you think? Should I or not? Please let me know what you think.
I work on it for a little while today and got about 300 stitches done so this is how it looks now
And I think this will be my next finish!
Well its almost 11:00 pm so I better get my butt to bed!
(no it is 11:00 pm now)

Have a great weekend everyone!!!
Happy Stitching
Denise

Beautiful stitching xxx

Stephie said...

Those hearts are lovely. If it were me, I probably would change the date to show when it was stitched up, but that is totally up to you :) Looking forward to seeing more progress. xxx

Vickie said...

Well Denise you are asking an opinion, I would change it.

Vicki said...

Finding WIPs can be almost like buying new stash, right?! If it were me I would change the date...

I always enjoy going through my stash, and it never fails. I always find pieces that aren't finished! I have an angel that was started many years ago and every time I run across it, I think that I'll finish it right up.......Haven't yet though. I think you may want to change the date. I always look at the dates and think that they tell us when the pieces were finished. Love your work.

Great stitching! I think you made a lot of progress in a few days. Enjoy! :D

Lovely progress...if it is a small piece I would change the date. I had a large piece and I left the original date and then squeezed in the finish year to show how long I had worked on it.

Hi Denise. Just wanted to pop over and say thanks for following my blog! Your wips look great. I think I would change the date too or do what P.J. suggested - put both dates on.

Great stitching projects! I have a bigger piece calling me to its attention but I keep leaving it for smaller ones.
