Happy New Year and To Stitch or Not Stitch

Happy New Year! My how 2010 just flew by.

Overall I'm happy with the stitching I did in 2010. Quite a few small designs were stitched as well as some old WIPs. This sampler is a really old chart from 1990, but I only acquired it a year or so ago after looking for it for a long time. I love the verse and the colors and has been an enjoyable project while I was actually stitching it! I kept putting it aside to start something new;) My goal was to get it finished in 2010 but that didn't happen, so now I'm working very hard to wrap it up in the next few days. You know...itching to get something new started! Have only the alphabet at the top and a little green on the vine and my name and date left, unless I decide to do the satin stitch border. You can see it in the picture of the chart. From the beginning I wasn't sure if I'd stitch it or not, since it would be just as pretty with just the vine. What do you think? Love to hear your thoughts.

I managed to get up at 5 a.m. yesterday morning to be at The Silver Needle at 6 for the annual New Year's Eve sale. I got several charts and some fabrics/threads, so I think I'm set for a while now! My goal is to make 2011 a Stitch from Stash year. There are so many pretty designs that I've gotten over the years that should be worked up and quite a few larger WIPs that have been neglected for far too long.

Gotta get dinner together... I have a bowl game to watch tonight! GO SOONERS!

Edited to add: OU won by the way...48-20! Way to go!

The pomegranate sampler is beautiful. Not sure about the boarder, I think yours looks good, and the one on the chart looks good, too. Sorry, no help I know. :)
