if I would stick to stitching on one project at a time........
instead of 3 ......or more.
Don't worry, you are not seeing double......well in a way, you are.
I started these "flower of the month" a long time ago. I am stitching two sets at a time, on a large cloth, because I want to sell one set in my vintage shop and I want to keep a set for myself.
So I pick a day of the week, and devote it to stitching on this project.
Another day of the week,
I focus my stitching on this vintage tablecloth that I found a while back in a junk store. It also has a few holes that I am repairing a long the way.
There are only 4 motifs, which were pre- printed on this cloth
one in each corner..........
and I decided to stitch them in different colors ........
because of the different dishes I have.
I am almost through with this motif and have only one more motif left to stitch.
On another day of the week, I work on
another wonderful tablecloth that I found in a junk store.
It is linen and 4 napkins to match.
I used a morning glory design for each corner
and since the cloth has lavender and purple on it,
I am stitching lavender and purple morning glories on it.
Many of you might remember me posting about this shirt......
which I call my garden shirt.
I embroidered the pocket on the outside and a little bit on the inside to make it look like the flowers were spilling from the inside of the pocket.
So yet, on another day of the week..........
I have been working a large panel of morning glories across the shoulder and dipping down the front and a little down the back
and going down the top shoulder of the sleeve. This is taking me longer, because I am still deciding what I want on the shirt and where I want to place the design.
and in between all of this............I make pie.........what could be better??
This is a Cherry Crumble Pie.

So maybe in a while I will be able to show you
the last stitch at the end of my needle..............
in all honesty............I don't ever want to see the last stitch of my needle.............
I want to stitch up until my last breath.........
How about you?
Is the last stitch in sight for your projects?
I would love to hear!
