Five WIPs - Linda

2015 Stitching!  It is always so exciting to start a new year and make plans of what you want to stitch and how you will accomplish it.  I am so very lucky to have a group of stitching friends to obsess over this with!!!!  Pat came up with the idea to pick five WIPs from our stash and concentrate on finishing each of them this year.  So, this past weekend when we were all together I asked everyone to bring their five choices with them so we could have show and tell.  What a blast it was!!!  I took pictures of everyone's choices and over the next several days I will show them to you!  So many great projects!!!!!  First up are Linda's choices!  I am obsessed with this first choice.

The Birds & The Bees by Carriage House Samplings.  It is a amazing!!!!!!!!!  Who would ever think that these colors would work, but they sure do!!!!!!  I am putting this one on my wish list for sure. Linda makes the best choices for projects.  I should just follow her around and stitch exactly what she does!!!!
 And then look at the perfection of her actual stitches!  She is a real artist and does such lovely work. 


 Next up is Sarah Spurr by CHS.  Another one that is on my to be stitched list!
Linda is participating in the SAL for Dorothy Walpole.  This is one amazing stitch.  It will be a total masterpiece when it is done. 

I wish this picture was not blurry!  This is Birds of a Feather by BBD.  Another masterpiece!  Linda is so close to a finish on this one.  Once we finish a project the idea is to rotate another one into the five current WIPs.  

As you can imagine, and as you have probably done yourself, we have all amassed quite a stash of stunning charts to be stitched so rotating in the next WIP will be so much fun!

Several of my friends are doing a SAL with The Red Deer Sampler.  Here is Linda's progress.  I think I am going to be sorry that I did not join them.  Really, as I said before, I should just follow Linda's every move!!!!!
Will be back soon with my next stitcher's five WIPS!  So fun!!!!!

So many of these are just stunning -- wonderful patterns and well executed! I do love that one with the bees and the pink. Looks like "Tab can pink" in the picture! But really, do love them all.

Lots of wonderful stitching. I often wish I had a group of friends that stitch. I actually don't know of anyone. That's why I love the blogging!

Natalia said...

Wow!! Beautiful projects, all of them!

Linda is a stunningly gifted stitcher and her choices are just what I would have said she would pick out. They speak to who she is, what she likes and admires. Perfect! You are lucky Laura to have a group of friends that support each other in the love of the needle!
