The number of WIPS you have and your progress on them is amazing to me. If I had that many, I would never finish anything! ;O) Of course, I'm especially partial to your Texas finishes and your Button Up Birdies. I stitched all of those and love them.

Wow! Your ornaments are so cute, I can't wait to see how you finish the others! I love those animals, I have that pattern around here somewhere and I get inspired every time I see yours. Well done, Joyce! Can't wait to hear about your retreat!

Your projects are wonderful, but I still don't know how you keep track of them and on top of them all. It's a gift!
