Some Finishes( not recent)

I have actually finished many a piece in my day. Unfortunately I have given the majority away. I made a vow last year to make more for home. Some of these pics are not the greatest. My apologies.

The Real Oldest WIP

Alas... the Last Supper piece is not the oldest WIP. This lighthouse by Elsa Williams is. I started this for my hubby in the summer of 2006 or 2007.

My to-do list

Here are two pieces on the horizon on my to-do list. One is "Always and Forever" by Little House Needleworks. The other is "In My Father's House" By The Bay Needleart.

Little House Neighborhood

Here are pics to show my slow progress on my first Little House Needlework piece. This is my second attempt to upload these pics. My first attempt, for some very strange reason, ended up on the Little House Needlework SAL blog!

Latest on Last Supper

Here is my progress as of this morning. I have about three apostle to finish and I will be done. It is filthy from being the oldest WIP, so I am praying it will come out clean when I am finished. I used to use Orvus for washing my needlework. Is this still the best thing to use?

Updating WIPs

Ok, I am going to try this once more. The whole blog thing did not work the first time around. I realized just how "un-computer-saavy" I am. I know how I want my blog to look, but can't figure it out. For now, I will try to just post what I stitch. I will try posting updated pics of my WIP.
I am really trying for a rotation but, find a hard time doing that. Currently I am working on the Last Supper, a gift for my parents that has been a LONG WIP, I hope to finish it soon.
I am also working on Little House Needlework piece and the Teacher by Marilyn Leavitt-Imblum.
I will be attending a stitch and chat tonight , for the first time in years, so I hope that will be a motivator. I also hope to get into the blogworld with an active site.
