I use a Word document to keep track of my stitching. I'm sure there are better and easier ways to do what I do, but I'm happy with my current process. When I reviewed my list of finishes for 2007 I found fewer finishes than normal. I'm not sure what happened. I dropped from 43 finishes in 2006 to 30 finishes in 2007. That seems pretty dramatic to me! I started comparing my finishes list to my blog entries and discovered that I didn't bother to post about some of those finishes on my blog. Some projects were mentioned but never photographed. Some slipped completely below the radar.
Here are some of my projects for 2007 that you might have missed:
From the 2006 JCS Ornament magazine, Prairie Moon's Mistletoe House. Finished 02-06-07. Prepare to be horrified...the cording is GLUED on. Looks pretty good, doesn't it? Hehehe
For Mark's birthday, Be Silly by My Mark Designs. I still need to make it into a door hanger for his office, but I can't settle on backing fabric. Finished stitching 03-10-07. I have plenty of time to do the finishing for his birthday this year.
By Something in Common, this cute free design called Woodland Joy. Finished 03-17-07. This was the beginning of my owl phase.From the 2006 JCS Ornament magazine, Country Cottage Needlework's Winter's Eve. Finished 03-20-07. This was a kit I received as part of an exchange. At some point I'll probably change the hanger since sparkle isn't my thing. By Bent Creek, Ladybird Zippie. Finished 07-22-07.
Also by Bent Creek, Summer Row. I stitched this as a surprise for my friend Ginger. Finished 08-05-07. Jeanne helped me with the framing. Ginger took this picture of it hanging on the wall over her sofa.
I have six or seven more 2007 finishes to share, so I'll do that next time. Then I have my finishes and progress on projects for this year. So much to tell!
I'm going to try to be a better blogger. A few weeks ago I opened up my Bloglines account and accidentally marked all 3000+ new feeds as "read." I swear, it really was an accident. It made me a bit sad and I haven't had the heart to log back in. But I will! Really! And I'll try to do better with posting, too. You don't even have to send me any floss, Monique. But you do need to autograph my JCS Magazine. Please.
