Considering I am making 2014 a WIP slaying year this seems like the perfect SAL for me to join. So let's get on with the introduction. I have been stitching off and on for about 25 years. I love Mirabilia, samplers, and Chatelaine Designs (not that I have finished a Chatelaine yet, more on that later on). These three are my greatest loves but of course there are many many more. That love of all things cross stitchie is what has gotten me into this dilemma of a WIP hot mess.

  • Red by Mirabilia
  • Three Tulips (can't remember the designer)
  • Ashley's Roses by Mirabilia
  • Blackstone Fantasy Garden by Ink Circles
  • Sabrina by Mirabilia
  • Halloween by Oberlin Samplers
  • Queen Anne by Dark Side of the Moon
  • Peacock by Dimensions
  • Fairy Idyll by Mirabilia
I cannot see myself getting more than this completed this year due to the fact I want to work on one of my Chatelaines. I am trying to keep this "realistic". I know I will want to start something new this year as well. I shall absolutely start Santa's Magic by Mirabilia, this is extremely high on my bucket list. Along with slaying WIP's this year I shall also be stitching just from my stash. The only purchasing I am allowing myself is threads, but only if they are needed to finish a design. I have so many lovely fabrics and designs that this should not be that difficult. When February market comes around I might not be feeling so confident and cocky.

Well, i think that's a good list of WIPs for this year. I bet you'll be able to finish at least half of those if you set your mind to it. ;)

You'll do just fine with not shopping. If now, my handy dandy whip is always available. HAHA!!

come February market, you might need to be forcibly restrained from surfing :) I'll give your husband some tips :)

I think for stitchers that "new years stitching resolutions" should be "March stitching resolutions". that way you could say that you're not buying any more stash and probably be able to stick to it. hahahaha! =)
