First posting in year 2008

I have been stitching but I did not complete the finishings. I don't really have any set plan for 2008. I want to try out new things as far as finishing technques and some sewing. I have purchased a few Judy Odell finishing booklets. I am trying out Vikki Clayton silk as well. I have stitched 2 projects and I love her silk so far and it is quite affordable. She has a great board with incentive when participating in the forum. I am trying to find a "Red" that I like to stitch some of my French charts. In 2008, I will still continue my Biscornu stitching and I am going to make a few strawberry emery type of finishing as well.
