It has been a long time coming, it seems like forever.  Ichabod Seabury is Finished!!!  I cant believe how long it took to fill in the blocks around the wording.  E-TER-NAL.  LOL.  I finished him last night around 11:30 and told my husband that I wasnt coming to bed until he was done.  Thank goodness it wasnt too late.

For reference, this is from Primitive Needle (We are all going to miss Lisa and her great designs!) using the called for Swamp Linen and Belle Soie Threads.  I wonder what the frame will look like?!!

So another WIP down in the bucket and a new day has started.  What shall the next WIP be?  I have taken pics of the next 2 WIPS colors, both projects have been started-- I cant let myself start a new one this year just yet.......I promise you, that I will though :)  It is only a matter of time or WIP lists!!!  Anyway, both sets of colors are all silks, a variety of them and I am excited to get my hands into them.  The biggest question is which one to dive into first?!!

Thanks to all who visit my blog regularly, and those who stumble apon it and enjoy it as well. I love receiving comments and kind thoughts from all of you.   I hope to continue to keep it interesting and entertaining.  Most of all, help with the enabling!!!


  1. Great finish! Love the linen colors with the silks and can't wait to see what frame you choose.

    Your next starts look great with all those wonderful silks to stitch with

  2. Congrats on your finish! It looks fabulous and I am so glad you didn't have to stay up until the wee hours of the morning to finish it!

    I vote for the project that the top set of threads goes to. Beautiful colors!

  3. Congrats on your finish. The linen color is perfect for this design.
    Love the silks you've pulled for both projects. Can't wait to see which one you've decided to work on next.

  4. I love the Primitive Needle piece, it looks wonderful.You said you were not going to bed until it was finished and it reminded me of this quote - it's about knitting but works just as well for sewing.

    Looking forward to your next piece. Irene xxx

  5. Congratulations on that great finish. I just can't get over how that linen is so great for this design.

    Love the silks you pulled and can't wait to see what you're working on. I'm like you on starting something new - after I finished Ann I wanted to start something new, but went back to WIP. Not as fun, but nice to get a WIP cleared up!

  6. Congrats on the finish! I love Ichabod!! Sometimes you just have to draw a line in the sand and say "I'm not sleeping until this is done!". And I can't wait to see what you've decided to stitch on next - the silks are all so pretty, either one is going to be a good choice!

  7. Amazing finish. I really love it.

    Can't wait to see what you have decided to work on next.

  8. Gorgeous finish! I've always loved this one. Can't wait to see what's next!

  9. Love it! So excited to see what you start next. Can you email me you're email address again? My computer crashed and I lost all my email address's. I want to email you but I forgot your email! Eek! Keep up the awesome stitching! -Kathy
