Must DO UFO'S By Christmas time

Very badly neglected are 2 projects that have been in my "to do"pile.
First is the chart "snow" By Bent Creek .  I am stitching this on a Charles craft pillow.

The other is a chart from DMC favorites book, 1998......yes 1998.... the fairy has been suffocating in the bag for 13 years lolol  I think it is time I let stitch her and let her shine.

Please ENCOURAGE ME!! As you can see it has been a very long while that I have not had the stitching bug.
Please help me decide by leaving a comment which of the 2 I should finish:

Snow chart... just a few stitches and I can decorate it for Christmas

the beautiful fairy that has been in the waiting for 13 years

Café by Lilli points

Well, it has been a long while since my last post.  Life has been so busy with my children and homework, gardening baking cooking and of course, housework!  Today I thought that I better get my needle and get creative before more time runs away from me

I used this piece of linen that already had most of the coffee names on it and I went along and stitched the coffee beans and the words "frappé".  A pretty quick project to get me back into things!
