UFO - Winter into Spring

Two entries in one day.. you'll be getting sick of me!

I don't have any new stitching photos to share unfortunately, as I haven't had a lot of time to stitch. I was looking through some UFO's earlier today though, and I've decided that I really need to finish off some of these projects that were started so long ago. I think the first one I need to tackle is the (former) Winter into Spring Mystery by Pamela Kellogg. I started it on 1 January 2004 when the mystery started; kept up with Parts 1 & 2, then got side tracked (as you do) ;-) I managed to finish Part 3 last year and I even started part 4, but I haven't touched it since. It's been (I'm sure!) close to 18 months since I've stitched on it. Photos follow:

Part 1 (January)


Part 2 (February)

Part 3 (March)

Parts 1-3 together:

Part 4 (April) WIP:

So as you can see, I don't really have much left to do. The remainder of part 4 and then the beading around the edges that you can see in Part 1. The squares are 8" x 8" (so not small). I do like the design (my favourite square is Part 1), but my tastes have changed since I started it... there are so many other designs I'd rather spend the time on is the problem. It's also on plain White 28-Count Jobelan. I have nothing against that fabric, but it's not something I'd really stitch on anymore.. But I really want to finish this. I need some encouragement is what I need!

Oooh, that is so pretty. I love how each square is symbolic of the month, but not blatant. I love how the yellow one is turning out. Keep stitching - you are so close!
