Decisions, decisions...help? Please vote!

So, I need your help, fellow blogging stitchers! Some would argue I actually need a great deal more help than anyone could possibly offer, but for today I just need help picking which WIP I should stitch in the month of July.


I really need to mix it up a little as I am starting to get a little sick of the pieces I am currently working on, and with me working on the same couple projects all the time, my WIP drawer isn't going down as quickly as I would like. So, I decided that for the month of July I am going to put aside the lamb series, and work on something different. And that is what I need help with!


Ok, I have narrowed it down to three choices! (An amazing feat, considering the number of WIP's that jumped out at me and clambered for my love when I opened the drawer!)


First up...Snow Valley Express...This one I have been working on since I was in college...and I graduated 5 years ago, so this tells you how long this one has been a WIP/UFO. This one I started to give to my dad for a gift, as my mom is the proud owner of several of my pieces, however, my poor dad has nothing that I have ever stitched....sad, I know, and then this one I procrastinate for YEARS on....I really need to get it done up, so maybe I can send it as a Christmas gift. So, thats option #1!




Option #2: Isaiah 40:31. I started this as an SAL with a fellow stitching blogger a few years back, but we both got busy and decided to call it quits. I would still love to finish this one, and just recently at Bible Study we were talking about memorizing scripture, well, one of the girls spoke up and said "You could just cross stitch verses, I bet they'd get stuck in your head then." Or something like that, which made me think of this project, and it made me want to pull it out and work on it again.





Option #3...Holiday Airing, by Diane Phalen. I love her work, and have several of her patterns in my stash. And I would like to finish this one day, and I thought, well, it's crazy hot out, so why not work with some snow, maybe that will make me feel better! Plus, for some reason, I have been having the inkling to stitch something Christmas-y, so I thought this one would be a great one to pull out.



So, there yah have it, stitchers, now just leave me a nice little comment and tell me which one you vote on!!! I would greatly appreciate it!



I want to say hello also to my nre followers! Wow! Up to 75 now, that's amazing!! I never thought I would entice that many people to my blog, to listen to my drivel. Thank you all so much, it really makes me feel good that my love and hobby of stitching is being appreciated and enjoyed by others who stop by!



Well, I am off to get some reading in, I am almost done with book #7 for the month. Yay me! Last month I got 4 done, so a bit of an improvement, I'd say!



Thank you for stopping by! and until next time, Happy stitching!

Haha! As I was posting this I got follower #76! thank you!!!

Hi Lana! I love all your "new" WIP's you showed! I really love #3 although the stitched piece for your Dad would be nice too... Hope you have a good day! Meredith

Jules said...

Well, I would say do the first one so you can finish it for dad for Christmas. That would really make his day I'm sure!! But how about putting all three in "rotation" for the month of July and see how far you get? Just a thought...as they are all just adorable.

Your work is really beautiful and you are almost there on all of them. I think I will vote for Snow Valley Express because I love the red and white colors. I hope you finish it off soon and show us the finished result.

All three are great, but #3 really catches my eye. Whatever you chose, I'll enjoy watching your progress :)
