Work in Progress.

One day when Sharon or Linda are able to spend a few minutes with me here, I would like their help in setting up another item on my sidebar. Many of the stitchers' blogs I visit have a column listing their works in progress, and I think this is such a neat idea. I have mine written in a notebook that I keep in a tapestry bag with my current WIPs, but I don't look at it very often, and when I do, I am either amazed at the amount of stitching I have completed this year, or shocked to find that I have forgotten to finish something that had a deadline of 2 weeks ago!
The cross stitch project in this picture is for a friend who turned 60 in March this year. I felt so bad about missing her birthday that I decided to stitch something other than just a card, and give it to her as a combined Birthday/Xmas gift. She likes a drop of red wine, so I think (hope) she will appreciate the sentiment: "Age Doesn't Matter Unless You're A Cabernet"!

Love the words in your new piece - I'm sure your friend will adore it too :) Know what you mean about changing blog settings ... the air has turned blue a few times here trying to work things out!

Don't feel bad Gina, I need a little help with that too. Some of this stuff is a bit confusing.

As for your stitched piece, gorgeous! I don't think I've seen that one but am looking forward to seeing your completed project.
