Getting closer to a new start

OH!!!!! What will it be?   I have a few in my stitching basket that I want to start but not until I fulfill my promised to myself........to complete a thing or two or more!  I have sew many near completion.   You would think it would be sew simple to take the one on my list that is closest to being finished but 10% left to do on one may be more that 50% to complete on a different project.  Oh the decisions. 

This week I finished my Between The Sheets Sampler and promptly took it to be framed without so much as a photo.   I picked up my son-in-law's graduation piece to finish and am making great progress.  I should have this one done before the week is over.   The joke is, my fabulous son-in-law went to night school for 13, yes 13 years! to get his degree, will it take me just as long to complete his graduation sampler?  Also, I took my SB April Showers to work to hang in my cubicle before I photographed it, so here is another recent finish.   Next, will be SB May Flowers to finish; the stitching is complete but I need to create it as a fanfold.

So back to what will be on my list next....
I think I will work on completing this stitchy thing I picked up at the Longaberger Homestead a few years back.   While it is not Cross Stitch! it is stitching.  Once this one is complete, I think I will take on one more quick finish before a start a new project.   Just in time for my May Retreat in OCMD.  Perhaps I can create a rotation of a couple of WIP's and a couple of new items.   hmmm, deserves some thought.  
Wishing all a great week and successful stitching.  I know my week ahead is a busy one with a quilting class, a board meeting, stitching group at my house and leaving Friday morning for Boston.

So, did you pick something yet? I always love it when those old WIPs are finished, although it doesn't happen often for me!

Missed you at the Guild meeting. Hope Boston was fun.
