The next project I picked up was a ufo from last summer, a project from the August 2007 issue of Just Cross Stitch. It is worked on 10 count tula with DMC #5 pearl cotton and Caron Watercolours, and is a delight to stitch. Gandalf is guarding it for me in the photo below, and with his help, I've gotten a little further on it than the picture shows.

It occurs to me that I haven't posted a list of my 20 projects (minus 2 finishes). I'll have to dig it out and add it to the blog. I'm worried that I've bitten off more than I can chew, but we'll see. One of my challenges is to learn how to knit socks, but first I have to learn how to knit. Luckily, my mother is an expert knitter, and got me started on an easy beginner's project, which we decided would be a potholder. I've finished the first and have started on a second. Knitting is so relaxing!
As if all this weren't enough, I also have a mystery project to finish, that is, a sampler which must remain a mystery for now. In a few months, I'll share pictures.
