Still in Love...

In the spirit if the WIPocylapse challenge next year, I got to digging through my WIP basket. I came across this goodie. We all know that we sometimes start something or even buy something and never start it and then our tastes change.

Well, I am still in love with the overall project as well as all the individual motifs. With the holidays upon I know I will have limited stitching time but I did mount this on my stretcher bars in anticipation of putting in my rotation. It is kind of looming in front of me say "for left me in a zip lock bag in the closet".

  The pattern is from Dimensions, the cloth is 14 count aida and will take some getting used to once I start to work on it again.   The copyright date on the cover page is 1993 and I can tell that when I went on a cruise for my 20th wedding anniversary in 1995, I worked on it on the plane to and from Florida.  Crazy......I think this is the oldest one that I will include in my rotation and I doubt I know the time frame of the others like I do with this one.....but first things first.   I need to update my photos on my 2011 Completed tab.

I love your WIP, Robin, and can even remember those days when we could stitch on planes too, funny and sad. I also adore that it is from an Anniversary cruise...what a fun re-visit WIP. I love the motif and can't wait to see your finish!
