Rotation

I decided that it was time to go back to some sort of a rotation. There are too many WIPs in my bag and too many things I am itching to start, so a little discipline is in order.
It is encouraging that the first WIP I pulled out was close to being finished and so I have a finish to show. It was started in 2006! Cirque des Cercles done on 36 count linen with Waterlilies Eggplant. Don't know what I am going to do with it but the stitching is done.

Having a finish of course necessitated a new start. This is the William Morris bag that was featured in a recent Cross Stitcher Magazine (UK) and it is very enjoyable to work on.Yesterday, today and tomorrow I will work on my stained glass landscape, which alas is far from being finished..

Love your CDC, it's so pretty.

I am really interested to see your progress on the William Morris piece, too. I have his Tree of Life tapestry hanging in my house.

Beautiful finish. Keep posting updates of your wips. I find that it helps to motivate me when I can see my progress over time.

Wow, that's one awesome finish - the colour is absolutely stunning! :D I have to admit, I've just started getting back into a rotation again, and have been amazed how much more stitching has got done in the short time I've been doing it, it really does make a huge difference! Look forward to seeing your progress as your work through the WIP pile :D
