Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

More Finishes?!?

I can’t believe the Finish-itis has continued this long.

Michael Powells Venice Street Scene (from CrossStitch Gold magazine August 05)

A cute pumpkin hat (ok, this required a start)

This is destined for a coworker’s almost-six-month-old baby girl.  I just couldn’t resist the opportunity to do a little pumpkin 🙂

I’ve also finished a Pay It Forward item which will go out in Monday’s mail (I hope).

With all these finishes, I thought it time for a start.  I dug thru my stash for something appropriate and decided on Moonlit Garden from Blackbird Designs.  Pulled out fabric, put the Weeks in their little bags and had found the center of the chart…

And I just couldn’t do it.

I pulled out Emerald Mermaid instead (this pic is a bit old.  New one this weekend.  I promise).  I’ll alternate between her and Autumn Queen for awhile.  Or at least until the SAL starts for Beneath the Sunlit Sky (another Blackbird Designs) on the 15th.  Hopefully I’ll be able to convince myself to start it.
