First WIPocalypse check-in for the year and I’m already a few days late …. oh well. Here goes:
Stitchalong SAL – Any AAN design
For this SAL I thought I would dig out my WIP of Cuor di Fiocco (Snowflake Heart). Unfortunately, although I found my WIP, it was not in its project bag, so I have no idea what thread I am using to stitch it in. Further investigation is required before I can get back to this piece.
Brodeuse Bressane SAL – Fleur de Lys
I love Brodeuse Bressane designs and decided when the Fleur de Lys SAL was announced late last year, that I would stitch this one on black. After a number of floss tosses and false starts I finally settled on a mix of ThreadworX threads with a touch of Gloriana here and there. Well I only had 32ct black Belfast in my stash and I’m not happy with the garland of leaves, I think the fabric is too small for such intricate lines to show clearly. So I’m going to start this design again in a few weeks when some 25ct black fabric arrives – courtesy of Julie. I think she had enough of watching me struggle with this piece 🙂
Maggi Co’s Village WIP – Catgirl & Catboy
This is a WIP from 2012. It was originally designed to go into the group house I was in at the time, but as usual the project outlasted the item it was being stitched for. I still love the project and I have now finished it. First finish of 2014.
Topic: Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!
Hi I’m Mel, formerly a librarian but now living on disability due to chronic migraine. I do what I can, when I can and don;t stress about the rest. I live with my two beautiful cats in Melbourne, Australia.
Instead of picking specific projects for this WIPocalyse, I plan simply to work on all of the SALs and whatever of my WIPs that interest me at the time. I have over 50 WIPs so if I can get 1 small one finished each month, I will call it a win!
Some of my WIPs are in the list to the left and the tab above. I will add other WIPs as I unearth them! Planning to shop my stash this year, so the WIPocalype is keeping on path. How about everyone else? How are you going so far this year?
