I Need Your Help and Stable Update

Hi Blogger Friends.  I DID IT.  I finished stitching page 2 on the Stable.  Only about 9,000 stitches left.  I should be done by April 1, 2014.  I started it April 1, 2013.  I stitched one strand of creamy by his tail.  I also did the two signs and roses and leaves.  Those 8 roses were start and stop stitching again and took me forever.  I don't want to stop working on this one.

Now I need your help.  This Thursday is my 21st anniversary and this Saturday is my __th birthday.   I have decided to treat myself to two new starts.  A year older means I can't decide which two to start.  Here are my choices.

Bothy Threads cut thru Steam Train

99 Bottles by Ink Circles

Please leave me a comment on this post only and vote for your 2 favorites.   I will start one on Saturday and one on  Sunday.  Thanks for your help.  I really appreciate it.

Thanks for looking.  Linda

The roses in the Stable look so pretty! I see what you mean about stop and start, changing the colors so often, but that's what makes them so pretty! That's a great goal of finishing exactly a year later on April 1.

I vote for Steam Train and Splish Splash!

Anna van Schurman said...

I vote for 99 bottles because it's so different from the other things you are stitching!

EvalinaMaria said...

Dear Linda, happy birthday and happy anniversary! Did your husband came as a birthday gift? Just kidding.

Your progress is awesome and I think your two new starts should be 1) the train and 2) the bottles. Of course you can start whatever you like.

Margaret said...

Happy anniversary and happy birthday! Your stable looks great! I vote for the steam train and 99 Bottles. Fun fun!

Jackie said...

Hi Linda, That stable is looking good. Love it. Lots of work, but well worth it (I think).
Ok! Let me see…Cottage for your Anniversary because you established a home with your DH and Steam Train for your Birthday because that is a journey…you made many stops along the way (in your life).
Those are my two picks. Hope you have a wonderful Anniversary and Birthday too.

I vote for Steam Train (that little duck swimming inside the train is too funny) and Splish Splash.

Preeti said...

Hi Linda,
Wish you happy anniversary and happy birthday!!:)
I like the train and splish splash ones. Since in stable you have already done cottage type so doing other cottage will be a similar feeling.
