My first WIPocalypse finish

I had a finish! Quaker Diamonds was the first thing I wanted to finish for my WIPocalypse goals, and as expected I finished it a couple of days ago. It feels good to have a large finish so early in the year!

So then to celebrate, I started one of the new pieces on my list - Long Dog's Froth and Bubble. Only a little progress on this so far due to my heavy work schedule this week. This is stitched in a mixture of the recommended GAST and some HDF silk...

Great start to the year, Gil. Love your Quaker Diamonds. I also have it in my stash, but have not yet kitted it up. Maybe next year!

Gorgeous finish, and I'll be watching the new start eagerly - I like this, but I've never seen it stitched and would like to see what it stitches up like before buying the pattern and beginning it :)
