Finally Perhaps I Should Retire is Finished

I put the finishing touches in about an hour ago. This will go to Cross Stitchers for Charity, It's going on a PM Boy quilt done on Blue for any boy. I don't think the children have been picked yet for the girl or boy quilt. Next I will be starting a Teacup for CSFC Teacup quilt. I have my next few projects selected now, so that will bring me closer to the 50 mark! They are: Tea Cup, a small Christian piece, Four Angels each with a muscal instrument, (I'd like to count it as 4 different projects but they are real small and all going on one piece.) Also I want to do a piece I did a few years ago called "Give Thanks" by Gloria and Pat, a couple of Christmas pieces, and finish up a UFO Christmas piece, the Eiffel Tower, and another Precious Moments piece being done by Cross Stitch Addicts. This was one of my Nov. goals to finish this piece. I won't be finishing The Teacher though so that goal will not be met.

Speaking of 50 challenge how is everyone doing on it? So far I've been good. But if I don't start picking up speed on these projects, I will not make it to 50, maybe change it to 25. Wonder if I can do that.

I can't believe it is already middle of November. Soon we'll be gearing up for Christmas! I don't think about Christmas until after Thanksgiving. Our family is getting together at my brother's house for Thanksgiving. Ninuth (the exchange student living with them is going to make a Korean dish too. She's been warned though not to put in any hot spices.
Well, Until next time. Happy Stitching

Well you know how I'm doing with the challenge.

Your PM square is lovely.

WOW! You sure completed that quickly :o)

I think I'm up to 44 for 2006 but I wasn't doing the challenge. Maybe I should try for 2007 ;o)

The PM piece is lovely, I'm sure it will be greatly appreciated. PM pieces are so pretty, and they always make you smile when you look at them, so I'm sure it will bring a smile to what ever little boy gets it in his quilt.

TOO ADORABLE!!! Reminds me of a trip my mother and I took to the Precious Moments Chapel in Carthage, MO.

We have a fun new knitting web site - thought you might like to visit sometime:

Hope to see you soon!

Hi Barb, I am trying blogging again with a new blog(I hope I do better this time!). Your PM boy finish is so cute. It's going to be a great addition to a little boy's quilt.

Congrats on another finish. It turned out great. I'm on #7 toward my 10 project challenge. I never expected to get so far, so fast! I may just keep going and see how many finished I do before I see some stash that I just have to have!
