WIPocalypse update for May

Some reasonable stitching effort put in over the last month due to being off work with ongoing illness, what between a dreadful head cold/flu, followed by pneumonia, and finishing with a cortisone injection in my heel … I may have felt like crap for weeks, but it’s the most stitching I’ve managed to do in an awfully long time, and I loved every single second of it!!!  The last month saw the following updates take place (the only exception is that I had a Prairie Schooler exchange ornie included at the beginning of last month, but can’t show it yet as it’s only just left here on the journey to its new home):

  • Tiger Reflection by Dimensions – this was 100% finished
  • Walking in a Winter Snapperland by Bent Creek – got halfway through another block, taking it to approx 60% completion

I also started some new projects, which have to be added to the WIP list until I receive some missing silk threads:

  • 20 Flowers by Just Nan – 70% completed
  • Into the Night by Shepherd’s Bush – 90% completed

As a visual reminder, here are the projects I worked on during the last month, and their state as we go into the month of May:

During the next month I hope to get more stitching done on “Walking in a Winter Snapperland”, and also work on at least one more older WIP/UFO – I’m leaning towards Mirabilia’s “Enchanted Mermaid”, Ruth Schmuff’s “Flight of the Bumblebee” or Just Cross Stitch’s “Le Jardin Silk Sampler” … although I can’t guarantee what the final pieces will be ‘cos I change my mind 20 times a day!  Seeing as I’ve mislaid my stitching mojo for a while, I just want to stitch whatever takes my fancy at the time, and whatever builds my stitching enthusiasm up once again 🙂

  1. Hi Anne! I have been a lurker on your blog for several years now and I just love seeing all the beautiful stitching you do. You do quite a variety of styles and I love that. I have recently started a blog of my own and would love it if you had a chance to stop by. OneXataTime.wordpress.com

  2. Lots of work done for just a month, I envy you! Good luck with your other WIPs I look forward to seeing more of these pieces come together as you work on them. You’ve got quite an impressive selection judging by your WIP/UFO list on the side there.

  3. You’re early for the WiPocalypse update ^.^ Beautiful WiPs. All of them. I always admire your work. Your stitching is lovely. Hope you find your stitching mojo again soon.
