Suggestions Anyone????

***((( Edit: Between comments on this post and 22 emails, the vote is in!!! Finish Mary DeWitt first...SO, I will keep you all posted..!~ Thanks so much everyone for your awesome comments and suggestions! Faye)))***

I need everyone's input of what WIP I should go to next!!! I am stumped and somewhat ashamed of the age on a couple of these!!! First I must apologize for the dark photos...Rainy in NC today....Listed above is a reproductive sampler by Thread of Gold called Mary DeWitt Dansers Sampler. Its not nearly as washed out as it appears, rather antiquey shades..Lets just say I started it over 10 yrs ago and I think she needs finishing...Don't you?? or....
How about my other sampler by Threads of Gold...This one is 1738 Scottish Sampler and I think what drew me to this one was the variations in alphabets...done with DMC and on a vintage 32ct.. Below you see what the entire piece looks like...I'd say I am about half done or so.... And...here is the Quaker Lady....I like this one because you know me a Quakers....but for some reason the thrill wore off on getting this one finished...But hey, she's got her hands on her hips and I think she is sending me a message...Maybe you think I should put it the top of the pile .....I am just not sure....
Or, perhaps my Rosewood Manors Quaker and Diamonds....I know it looks vibrant in this awful dark photo...but the Valdani flosses are lending themselves nice on this 28 ct Picture this Plus fabric...I have ALOT to go on this one and honestly I am not used to working on 28ct...but maybe you say, go for it and chip away on this one next....

Of course tomorrow I will also get some valuable input from my resident experts, the Tarheels Stitchers...They might tell me what to work on next.... I'm pretty sure each will have an opinion!.lol....So, let me hear from you guys!~

Headed back to the craft room....holler back~~ Faye

I vote for the Quaker Lady, I love all your WIP, but she is such a sweet little piece and will probably be a fairly quick finish for you. You have so many wonderful choices - can't wait to see what you pick up.

Enjoy your weekend.

All your Wips look fabulous. I would pick the Scottish Sampler. I think the alphabets are quite unique although I also vote for Quakers and Diamonds. I've been sitting on the fence of this one...would be great to see someone's finished project! Have a fun weekend and have fun at your stitchy group!

Catherine said...

I'd do a little on Quaker and Diamonds, take a break with the Quaker Lady, then take a spin with the first one, followed by the 1738 Sampler. Just keep rotating around!

Kat said...

If I may...here is how I would finish them:

My Lady's Quaker (such a sassy lady!)
Scottish Sampler (love, love LOVE that alphabet!)
Quaker and Diamonds (such a beautiful start)
And last but not least, Mary De Witt (I really like the colors!)

That's my $.02 worth. I'm anxious to see what you decide!

Meadows08 said...

My vote goes for Quaker Lady. I LOVE her skirt and her "attitude"! Would you be interested in a trade for that chart when you're finished?

doris said...

Oh, they all look so fun to do! I'm in an extremely indecisive mood right now, so I couldn't decide if I had to. I've been fussing in my WIP drawer all week and can't settle on something. Good luck.

Vonna said...

I'd start with Mary, looks like there isn't much to go. She's one of the older WIPS and have been languishing in a drawer or basket or bin or someplace dark and she needs out into the light! I personally LOVE her!

Tommye said...

Oh, just get off your can and pick one! Or work on a different one every day. You can change the name of your blog to the Schizophrenic Stitcher.

Actually, I like the Quaker Diamonds, but I love the Scottish too.

I think I'll go stitch now.

Monsoon said...

Quaker Lady. I love the color contrast
Who is it by?

Deb said...

Oh goodness, I don't know what one to pick. I really like all of them. Big help I am, right???

pj said...

Oh how fun to choose. I would finish up Quaker Lady for sure. She is adorable and doable. The samplers will be fun too so put them in order.

Jeanne said...

I vote for My Quaker Lady because she will not be that hard to finish up and you are in the position of not letting her really become a UFO. It wasn't that long ago you were stitching on her. Every one of the projects is lovely! I have the same dilemma at my house LOL.

Blu said...

Well, I think the smallest is Quaker Lady, so you could finish her. Or maybe the one that has the least to go? (Not sure which one that that is).

OK. That was not very helpful...

Terri(TerriBoog) said...

I love each and every one but my fav is Mary DeWitt Dansers Sampler. I've never seen that one and just love it. Mary has my vote!

Nancy said...

They are all just beautiful, and I'm afraid I am not much help at all! Can't wait to see which one you choose!

Kellie said...

Quaker Harmony is gorgeous! I am not sure if I commented on your last post. Congrats on your beautiful finish.

As for your next WIP, I personally would go with either Quaker Lady or Quaker Diamonds. Quaker Lady because she is so cute and would be a pretty quick finish or Quaker Diamonds because the Valdani is fun to stitch with and it is such a beautiful design! :) But they are all beautiful! It is really win/win no matter what you decide. :)
Have a good weekend!

Myra said...

My vote is for the Quaker Lady. She just looks so sassy and seems to be saying "I'm next"! I would love to know more about the Tarheel stitchers - where do you guys meet?

JOLENE said...

They are all so beautiful and all deserving to be finished!!! If I were to decide I would say My Quaker Lady and then the 1738 Scottish Sampler. Even I am indecisive....I narrowed it down to two. Good luck!

Irene said...

They are all so nice, I really like the scottish sampler.

Carolyn NC said...

I vote for Quaker Lady first; then one motif on QD (at least), then Mary from TOG. How's that for suggestions?

Nic said...

I'd go for the Scottish sampler, given that I'm half-Scots myself ...

Siobhan said...

They're all beautiful. I'd go with whichever one will be finished with the least amount of work. That way you'll be down one WIP.

Sherry said...

My vote is Quaker Lady and Mary DeWitt but they are all lovely whichever you choose!

Valerie said...

Hmmmm...this is a tough one! I really like the Mary sampler and imagine how you will feel when you are finished with her! However, the Scottish sampler is gorgeous and Quaker Lady, well she is one of your faves! Tough decision Faye! Let us know what is next so we can keep up with your progress!

Jackie said...

They are all just gorgeous! Your stitching is just lovely! I love the variations on the Scottish Sampler too.

Littlebit said...

Oh my..they're all beautiful pieces; how on earth do you decide? Wait..I guess that's why you wanted a vote? I know I'm late, but that Mary DeWitt piece is SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! Your stitching is sooooo pretty!

Nicole said...

They are all beautiful Faye! I can't wait to see more of Mary! :)

Karen said...

Good choice! I got bogged down in my Quaker Lady too....not sure why but I found it a chore to finish! I even cheated and left the alphabet off so that I could just call it done.

Can't wait to see your progress on your sampler!

Michelle said...

Great choice! You have so much done on the others as well so just think of all the finishes you can have!
