Little finishes keep me going ... this was really a fun little stitch .. actually I like PMP's alot. I'm a huge Wizard of Oz fan, so of course I had to have it just for the sentiment!

In between stitching the PMP, I've been working on my personalized sampler. I ended up frogging last night, while watching Gilmore Girls .. It wasn't that I was off count on the sampler .. I just didn't like the way the colors were coming together .. this piece is one where I get to make all the decisions about what colors would be what letters and/or motifs .. and well, unlike a lot of you .. I don't often deviate from what a designer chooses for her design .. I mean I'll find fabric in my stash that works with the floss, and do some conversions if I don't have a specific color of floss, but really that's minor changes .. so I keep 2nd guessing myself. After frogging and then playing again with the colors, I feel better about my choices and will jump right back to it this weekend.
I've also been working on the border for Pursue .. I do love the border, but dammm they get boring to do and you'd think it would go fast, but nooooo! lol here's a look ...

Love your PMP finish Michele. Did it come with the pillow or did you make it?

Your PMP is adorable!

I know how you feel with the sampler. I fear it will become a lifetime project, never to be finished, because I keep coming up with changes to make.

The pillow is such a super finish! I'm a new convert to the smaller projects and seeing what everyone does with them is great! Nice job"
