Belatedly adding my update for October, although it’s the first WIP update I’ve made for quite some time. I’ve gone crazy stitching quite a bit since my return home – it’s helped me to take my mind off Dad’s passing and Mum coping on her own. So without further ado, here are my WIP updates and some other finishes.
Just Cross Stitch ornament SAL
I managed to finish all the remaining ornaments for a 12-month long ornament challenge using the 2018 Just Cross Stitch ornament issue – I used my two wild cards to change out two of the ornaments where I didn’t like one or didn’t have all the required threads and nothing to substitute with. The ornies I finished in October were:
Works in Progress / UFOs
I dragged out a few older WIPs/UFOs that were in my to-do-list for the year but that I hadn’t touched yet … I’ve failed my goals this year miserably, but at least I’ve managed some progress on a few projects for the year, even if it’s really small progress …
When I first came home I decided to start a new canvaswork project – I managed great progress until my fingers got too sore to keep yanking the threads through the canvas, so it’s been put into time out for a while, and I’ll probably pick it up again in 2020 to finish it off, if not before.
After I finished my JCS ornie SAL challenge, I decided to pick up a quick project that’s been kitted up for years – and finished it in a couple of days.
Question of the Month: Do you prefer to stitch on a rotation or one project at a time?
It depends on my mood at the time, to be honest – I work well with a rotation when I’m in the mood, it helps me to progress through projects quickly as long as I have them all set up together ready for me to work through the order of projects without having to hunt for items, or frames, or threads etc. I’ve been doing a screaming rotation of sorts for a while now – just stitching on what I feel like stitching on and not counting the hours at all. I’d like to get back to a formal rotation again, but I think I’ll wait until the new year for that.

ok, so now I can see your Halloween progress 🙂 Love the Jim Shore. I’ve just ordered it! Whoops. we’re over in 15 days, keep the good weather coming!
Thanks lovely – yell out if you need anything here xx
Probably patience! Si is frustrated as there aren’t hire cars available lol, so no road trip
Oh no 😦 how long did you want it for? There could be some smaller hire care places too – like hire a dent etc
I’m leaving it up to him. I’m content with public transportation. Silly us for booking the weekend U2 are in town! But we’re doing family Christmas this weekend (medical advice) then Pink Star walk next. Si badly needs to escape for a few days. He’s got too much swimming around in his mind.
Well done on finishing so many ornaments this last month!
Condolences on the loss of your Dad too, It just throws your whole world into disarray.
