Yeah, that's about how things are for me. Confusing as usual. I did finally finish all of the x's in The Gardeners and only have the backstitch details to go. Here's a pic...
On the bright side, I feel good about this piece. Can't wait to frame it and hang it somewhere in my home (once all of the house repairs/remodeling gets done and hopefully in this decade, lol).
This month's topic: Tell us about your oldest and newest WIPs.
Well, let's see. My oldest has got to be Coming Home for the Holidays. I was stitching this for my dad and nearly had the x's finished before he passed. I still have a little bit to go; mainly backstitch. He at least got to see it before he went to build my mansion in Heaven (he was a carpenter after all much like Jesus). Here's what it looks like currently, and for the past several months:

Now for my newest WIP. Hmmmm! I don't know what that would be at this point. I would have to say that one is Praying Hands by Yiotta's XStitch. I haven't picked that one up in f-o-r-e-v-e-r!!! I think I may work on that one next. Or Cirque des Carreaux. Anyway, here's where it stands:
Seeing as though this one is for a special occasion yet to happen, methinks I have plenty of time. :)
I am going to leave you with scenes from one of my favorite movies starring the late and GREAT Robin Williams!
Rest In Peace, Mr. Williams! I sure hope my daddy has a front row to your forever show!!
