Something finished....

I have been struggling lately with my stitching progresses. It seems like I lost all my motivation and many days pass by without placing a single stitch. I am not found by this at all. I have a big pile of UFOs and an even bigger one of projects that are close to become UFOs if I am not getting back into stitching. 
So this morning I worked a little on my Alphabet 1900 and I intend to work on it a few more hours during the day. So therefore there is no picture of this one yet.
But I took a few pictures of projects that I finished a little while ago and just haven't had the change of taking good shots of them.
At first there is BOO! I truly love this design. It was so much fun to stitch and I think I will stitch it a few more times on different kind of fabrics.
Design: BOO!
Designer: The Stitcherhood
Fabric: some orange 29ct. 
Thread DMC 310

I have also finished the 1999 Christmas Sampler by Carriage House Samplings. I don't know yet how to finish it, but it will be with some shabby dark fabric. It was my first time stitching on black fabric and I really enjoyed it.

Designer: Carriage House Samplings
Fabric: 18ct black aida
Thread: DMC as recommended

At last I have a little Tantes Zolder design to show you. I have started this one many years ago and just finished it just a few month ago. It is a really small design, just 3.5 x 2 inches big. I have no idea what to use it for. Maybe I'll add some lace and a pale fabric and make a lavender sachet or pincushion out of it.

Fabric: 40 ct. white Newcastle linen

I do have one more project that I sewed last night into a cute little pouch, but it is a gift. I will post pictures of it next week after it arrived to it's new home.

One stitch at a time. You may not be making many rows of stitches but you are stitching. Keep it up girl. Your motivation will return!

Your finishes are just lovely!

The black fabric really makes those Christmas trees glow. Remember stitching isn't a race, it supposed to be at your own pace (no matter how slow).

I've been suffering quietly from the same lack of motivation to stitch. For me it's more like I can only manage a few stitches every day, so there's very little progress going on. I'm hoping it will end soon!

Beautiful finishes!
