How Does Your Garden Grow finis

How Does Your Garden Grow - 2008 Papillion Creations Mystery
28 count Natural Linen
Hand Dyed Fibers

I finally finished the PC Mystery today. I have lost more stitching time over the past week because I didn't touch this for at least four days in the past week. And I would not let myself do anything else because I felt I had to get this piece in the done box. So I had to ask the question, why? I have yet to come up with a really good answer. :-) I guess I feel I just have to finish things. I fell out of the love with this piece months and months ago but I still moved ahead. Next time I'm faced with this situation, I think I'll move on way before I feel compelled to go on.

I need to start something new. I have three projects ready to go, Houses of Hawk Run Hallow, the new mystery and a Loose Feathers, Blessings and Kind Wishes from BBD. I think I'll save the BBD for the train next week and I already know I have to work on HoHRH at home because it's too big for the train. So that leaves the new mystery. I think I'll put some stitches on that one tonight. :-)

I took the pugs to the dog park today - while it was cold, the sun was shinning and it felt great. We met up with some of our pug friends. And all the pugs had variations of the same three colors, red, black and white.

My three all checking something out on the ground.

And the whole gang - Molly at the top, Aoife in the check, Clancy in black, Sadie to the right and Oscar at the bottom.

The cross stitch is gorgeous! Great job!

We went to the park today too for our monthly pug meetup! I just finished posting pictures from it.

Pug hugs and kisses!

Congrats on the finish. I started this one and have at least half of it finished. Not sure if it will get finished...not loving it now, either! It really is very beautiful stitched, but I just got tired of it...

Beautiful finish. It is hard to make yourself finish something when you've fallen out of love with it.
