Joy In The Journey - FINISHED!

Last Sunday I was able to finish this piece, but I was overloaded with work that when I'm home, I just wanted to sleep, that's why it's only now that I can post about it.  So, here it is, unframed:

Sorry, pictures were not that good.  I used a different camera than my usual Sony.

I started working on Tropical Fruits, but progress is not that significant so maybe pictures will follow next week.  As of last posting about this project, I think this was the progress I've shown here:
I hope I can finish this soon but I am so slow I think it will take another year or two?... Then hopefully I can go back to my UFO's.  I am planning to follow this schedule:

First, Floral Splendor:
Here's my progress as of ... I can't remember when, LOL:
I think it has lesser stitches to finish than Memory Lane:
 Here's where I left off with my Memory Lane:
I really, really need to be a good girl so as not to start anything new...  Well, we will see...

This is all for now my friends!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  And big thank you for all of your comments.  Am sorry if I wasn't able to leave comments on your blogs as it's really difficult to do it in the office.  But I assure you that I always, always read all of your blogs.

Take care everyone and have a great week ahead :-)

To Alison-Jellybean, I haven't upgrade to Google+ yet so I don't know how to reply to your comment.  Because what I usually do is whenever somebody leaves a comment, I usually do my reply in their blogs :-)

Fantastic progress !! Maybe you could do a reward program, say when you've done a certain amount on each UFO you get a new start !!!

It looks fantastic and I bet will look amazing when it's framed!!!

I just love the ones you have to finish as well, but I know how hard it is to resist starting something new as well, lol.

I've missed you SO much, looking forward to catching up soon!!!
Lots of love and hugs to you and the family!!
