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?

 

Yes I’ve been stitching.  For four nights running. I’ve turned down Warcraft and other social activities to stitch.  I think after all of these months I’ve finally got my stitching bug back!

I’ve been stitching Catgirl & Catboy by Jardin Privé based on the artwork of Maggi Co’s Village. Yes the same Maggi Co’s Village that is running the Night is in the Air SAL that I mentioned in my last post. The link to join that SAL is still up if anyone is still thinking about that by the way …..

I have a full album of pictures and thoughts on each night’s stitching (such as they are). Anyone who follows me on Twitter or Facebook already has those ramblings.
