I need your vote! What to stitch next?

So, now that I am done with Snow Valley Express, I need to find something to fill that spot! So! Like a good girl, I went WIP diving!  Started pulling out all my WIP's to see if any called my name, and I'm thinking that these two called the loudest! But help me pick which one, I have a sneaking suspicion which will win, but I can't decide.

First up is "Tree Branch".  The last time I worked on this was around the time Alyssa was born in 2011. Then in the hub bub of being a mom, and all, it got shuffled back into the pile, and forgotten. It depicts Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet sitting in a tree. I started this YEARS ago! Probably around 10 or 11 years ago, and now that I have a little precious girl who I think may enjoy it, I want to get it done, before she grows to old to appreciate having a Winnie the Pooh piece in her room.
 Next up is this one:"Sunset Run", and I started it probably about 15 or more years ago! (Wow! Have I been stitching that long?! Yup, it will be 20 years since I learned the craft and fell in love, this summer!) It depicts a horse sillouette running along water at sunset.
 Here is what it will look like when it is done.
I have many other pieces as well, but these two jumped out at me the most. Help me decide!! Thank you! And thank you all for your lovely comments on my finishing of Snow Valley Express. You were all so encouraging during my struggle to get it done, thank you for that!

Oooh, Sunset Run with the horse!! The colours look beautiful... That's the one I'd do next if I were you :D x

I love the sunset!! Beautiful colours.

My vote is Winnie the Pooh. These toddler years pass by quicker than you think... might as well complete it while she will love it!

Tough decision. I would go for the sunset one , but I also know what it's like to plan a stitch for the kids and by the time it gets done, they've grown out of it, so maybe do a bit of both ? Sorry, I'm not much help ,lol.

I vote for sunset run, I stitched the same pattern some years back, It looks not so special when u see the pattern but its really gorgeous when it is done. greetings from Belgium

If I was in your shoes I would go for the Winnie the Pooh one,for two reasons, first you have someone to give it to that would appreciate it, and secondly it's seems to be more close to being finished, so you would finish it quicker to move to the second one eheheh :)

good luck on whatever you choose, they both look gorgeous :)

I say whichever one is closest to being completed! And one is never too old for Winnie the Pooh (and Tigger too)!! I still love them!!!

Winnie, cause like you said you've got a little girl who is at the right age to love it!

Winnie the Pooh would be my choice!

you were working on the Winnie the Pooh piece when I first started following you. I agree this one needs to be completed before Alyssa out grows it.
Happy Stitching
