Top 5 Tuesdays: Top 5 WIPs to Finish This Year

This week's Top 5 Tuesday is an open choice. Thanks Kate for a great idea and I hope a lot of people join in this week! Make sure you check out everyone's links on the right side of Kate's blog as well. :)


I like making these lists to try and remind myself what I hope to complete this year. 

1. Letters by Nora S, H, G

As of last look:
 All cross stitch and back stitch complete with charted colours 2 over 2 on 28 ct Nuriel's Forest by Chromatic Alchemy
 Lots to do!
Even more to do! But will wait until H is complete to make sure it's centered well. 

2. AAN Spider Banner

The fabric colour is true on the top photo. I'm stitching 2 over 2 on 32 ct opalescent mystery fabric I received as a RAK. I ran out of the purple colour, WDW Cyclamen. Kathy from The Wooden Needle will be sending me some. She stocks a full line of WDW, only she had no spot for Cyclamen, so apparently it wasn't a full list. She was happy I had needed it so she can fill out her collection as well. 

3. Letters from Nora - L

I need to finish this for a friend. I have A framed, K finished, but not fully finished and this one has been waiting. So fully finishing K is a goal this year as well. 

4. Do Not Meddle

This is my last stunt stitching to finish for a friend that can't really stitch anymore. I had hoped to finish it last year, but didn't get there. I will have to restart as we discussed the fabric she sent and I started more horizontally, but she's thinking vertical might be better. This was only one night of work, so it shouldn't take long to restart. 

5. Reflections of Canada

I'm looking forward to getting back to this one and I hope to finish by July 1st, Canada's 150th birthday! 

Thanks for reading my list and cheering me on to get these finished. Happy Stitching!
