These are three of my very early stitching efforts. I am sorry to say I did not finish them.
This was one of the first patterns I purchased, Wedding Ring Bouquet by Paula Vaughan. It cost only $2. I think that I stopped stitching this one because I found . . .
Summers Remembered, also by Paula Vaughan. This was my first time stitching on linen. Something about this piece still "speaks" to me. I might begin stitching it again . . . someday.
I loved this design from the cover of the 1992 Cross Stitch Christmas from BH&G. Designer Sally Shimizu adapted it from an illustration by Judith Ann Griffith.
This is what the finished piece would look like. I think I might like to finish this, too . . . someday. But I will change the hair color to brown (I would not have dreamt of making color changes when I originally started).
It usually bothers me for things to be unfinished, but I will not let these UFOs sap my enthusiasum for my current projects (listed at the top of the blog).
