Woo Hoo Second WIPocalypse check-in and I’m on time – well I was on-time until the laptop froze taking my post with it. So here I am a day late with a replacement post. All of the sub-headings are links to the various albums for more photos and information on each project.
I’ve found the threads for my WIP of Cuor di Fiocco (Snowflake Heart). I was using “Cranberry” by Gentle Arts Sampler Threads! So in between other projects, I got a couple of good days in on this project!
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 got a good start on this one on the 25ct evenweave black. Parts 1-4 complete.
This is a SAL put together by the girls of the Aussie Stitchers FB group. We do one part every two months starting February 2014. Part one is complete. I’ll get back to this in April 🙂
Halloween Town is a Alessandra Adelaide Mystery SAL for 2014. One piece will be released each month starting February. Here is part one complete.
Stitch-a-longs appear to be my kryptonite. I don’t know why I sign up to so many of them especially as I don’t complete *any* on time, but I just cannot resist …. especially Mystery SALs. This was a SAL in 2012 and I somehow stopped after part 3 of 5. I think all the stars did me in. Anyway, a few days of stitching and it is now finished! With the exception of 4 beads. They are supposed to be French knots, but blast it, I’m going to use beads. I need 4 Mill Hill 00347 Garnet beads to really finish this.
Topic: How many projects do you generally feel comfortable having in progress at a time? Tell us about your one-at-a-time or rotation habits!
One at a time?? I don’t think I’ve ever stitched one at a time since I started back in the 1990s. Strict rotations don’t work for me either as I tend to find them restrictive and I chafe and find them a chore and then I lose interest in my stitching altogether. So I tend to stitch on something while it interests me and then change to something else. This year I am focusing on finishing some of my 50 o so WIPs that have come about because of the way I stitch 🙂 🙂 Of course as can be seen, I have also signed up to new SALs too – I never learn. But hopefully I will stick with these and get them finished on time for a change.
