Finish No 12


I finished this a little while ago. It is from a very old book, I stitched another piece in it about 24 years ago honest. But I thought this was pretty, I liked the colors in it and thought it appropriate for the surprise friendship quilt we are doing at 123 stitch.

This time I am stitching smaller pieces and going through the 25 challenge quicker so should be able to make it. In fact since I have close to a 1,000 books (collected down through the years), and have only stitched from less then 200 of them I discovered the other day, I should make 25 books I haven't stitched from. That shouldn't be hard either as 9 of the books I hadn't stitched from.

I have my next piece all kitted up ready to start tomorrow. It also will be a quick piece. It is a snowman and gingerbread man by San Man Originals. I'm doing it for a Snowman quilt we are doing at CSFC.

I am feeling quite a bit better. I even went to the Food Pantry at church today to work. Came home, slept for an hour finished this and then kitted up the next piece.
Now to do dishes!

Well---until next time Happy Stitching!

Nice finish - I like the sentiment, and very appropriate.
Glad you're feeling a bit better. Wasn't sounding good there for awhile.

Very nicely done. Like the design, too.

Are you joking? 1000 books? Wow. Good luck getting to 25. You can do it.
