Melissa's Contribution...

I have thought long and hard about what I want to stitch in 2015.  At first, I wanted to start something new.  New projects are fun, lol.  I was going to start Mirabilia's Sleeping Beauty, which is all kitted up and ready to go.  But then I thought maybe I should make this the Year of the WIP Finishes.

I am embarrassed to say that my Spring Carousel Horse from TW Designworks has been languishing in my To-Do pile.  I started it February 26, 2010, so it's almost 5 years old!  It's high time I get it finished.

I have also been collecting and stitching The Victoria Sampler's Gingerbread series.  I have all the buildings Thea has released to date, have stitched the first four, and working on the fifth.  But what I haven't done is put them together.  Frankly, sewing them together intimidates me, but I know if I just put my mind to it, I can do it!  Thea has wonderful instructions with colour pictures, plus I have the Gingerbread Tree Etui DVD with stitch and finishing instructions.

Thank you DJ for organizing this blog so we can update our progress and encourage, motivate and inspire each other :)
