5 of 15 pages completed

5 of 15 pages completed on Reptiles.
Even got to stitch most of the little reptile guy in the corner.

It was easier to pick this up and start stitching rather than changing projects, or starting something new. I couldn't decide what to stitch next, but one of the Long Dog Samplers keeps calling me, saying 'Stitch me next...".
Just haven't settled on whether to stitch that "Spirit of Vierlande" in the traditional black or try a red instead. So maybe another page of this while I consider it more.

Thank you for all the nice comments about my last finish. This one uses the same colors, but white was 1, and black was 8, on Drawing Hands. Now white is 3, and black is 7, so I'm trying to make sure I don't just grab a color automatically thinking I know what number is what color.

And I had to laugh about my stitching gallery...
Most of my stuff that I've framed is still on the floor, leaning frame against frame.
I tried to work out a balanced layout to hang them, but there is always another piece that I want to finish, to make the layout just right... So 90% of my framed cross stitch is still not hung on the wall. I need to fix that and soon. Out of sight is out of mind for me.
I'm working on trying to not leave loose ends and half completed projects. But I have lots of loose ends, and not just stitching projects, so it takes time.
