Time for yet another overdue blog post. This time it is the March WIPocalypse check-in. All of the sub-headings are links to the various albums for more photos and information on each project.
New Years Day 2009 I started this kit. I was well on my way to a quick finish (the combination of Holidays from work and Summer Cricket working its usual magic) and then the kit ran out of floss. It was a specialty LANA floss that, like Whisper, fuzzies up after you finish stitching with it. I have finally found the replacement thread, stitched it in and am now waiting for more thread to arrive.
I spent the last half of February stitching on this so there’s been some progress 🙂 Cuor di Fiocco (Snowflake Heart) is a great little project to stitch up while watching TV or when you are simply not feeling the best.
I love Brodeuse Bressane designs and decided to stitch this quick 7 part, 7 week stitch-a-long Fleur de Lys stitchalong. I finished only two weeks late. So very happy, first SAL begun and completed this year.
I started Kells Kritters a couple of years ago when I was gifted the chart. However, I didn’t have all of the GAST threads and got a little discouraged as I had nowhere to go with the threads I had. So I joined The FB Stitchalong Long dog Samplers SAL (1 Feb 2014 – 31 Jan 2015) to get this one out and started on again.
Topic: Show us your favorite places to stitch.
I have two favourite places to stitch. One is here – my favourite comfy lounge chair, with lamp and footstool. Facing the TV and in the perfect places for the heater and air-conditioner. One of the benefits of living on your own is that you can have the perfect space. The cats share my lap or choose from other spots 🙂
My other favourite stitching spot is the lounge at Julie’s place. Julie has a perfect stitching set up for herself and a guest stitcher – usually me 🙂
