New Start.. and A Finish Challenge

As a result of the upcoming trip home, I have to do a mad scramble to start AND finish Floral Retreat for my mommy. She had picked this pattern out from a slew of patterns I sent her sometime last year, and I don't think she expects it as a gift when I head home in the summer, but boy, wouldn't she be surprised! Or at least I hope so... else, I'm taking it back!!! LOL.

Mellie and I were talking one day--our chats usually consist of ragging at the non-finishers (Yes! You know who you are and y'all better get stitching if you don't want to feel the sting of my whip! Mwa-hahaha.) and planning our finishes--and we decided that our next finish should be on June 20th. She's been having a hard time rotating between 3 pieces and I plain just haven't been stitching on any BAPs (Big Ass Projects) at all.

So we came up with a plan for hopefully 3 finishes PER person this year! ^.^ More notches on our pink jackets. Of course, if I could talk her into doing a blog with me, you'd see her WIPs too... but the woman says that takes away from her stitching time!! She's obsessed, I tell ya, OBSESSED! LOL!

First one up is Dimension's Floral Retreat for me, Chatelaine's Convent Herb Garden for Mel, and Dimension's Regal Tiger for A. Yes, A is in this too. Wouldn't have it any other way. Mwa-hahahaha!

Now, for the particulars:
