And now for the progress report:
I have worked on 4 out of 16 projects since my last WIPocalypse, plus 2 from my series list.
1. Jannlynn - Gathering Honey
2. Teresa Wenztler - You Were Hatched
11. Scarlet Letter - Elizabeth Shephard
16. Just Nan - Counting Bats
And for the series:
1. Primitive Hare - Christmas Cubes A
6. Brooke's Books Stitcher's Alphabet L
Before I go on to discuss this month's topic, shall we just rewind to item number 11. Scarlet Letter - Elizabeth Shephard which looks suspiciously complete?
Challenge 1 - The Pentathlon (5 events). This will be my four weekend projects plus the evening stitching project (currently Ghostly Mandala)
Medals - I will award myself a Gold Medal for each completed project in the Pentathlon, a Silver for any WIPs and a Bronze for any additional projects started in that category (if I finish the Ghostly Mandala for example)
Challenge 2 - The Marathon. This will be my focus piece. Which will either be Gathering Honey or Little Snap Dragon, depending on how I feel!
Medals - I will award myself a Gold Medal for any completed piece, a Silver Medal for 8 days of stitching (Mon-Thur for the Olympic weeks) and a Bronze Medal for any additional projects started in this category (if I finish the first one)
Challenge 3 - The Olympic Rings - Blue, Yellow, Black, Green and Red. I'll showcase those colours as and when they appear in my stitching
Medals - I will award myself a Gold Medal for five colours, a Silver Medal for four colours and a Bronze Medal for three colours. They must form a substantial part of the focus area, not just two stitches in the corner!
Obviously the Pentathalon will have to start this weekend or I won't get the five events in but the other two challenges will run from the 5th to the next WIPocalypse post which is on the 18th August.
edit - Measi has amended the posting date to the 22nd to cover the end of the Olympics.
Nice and easy, no need to send me anything, just post around about that day and link-up. If it's a success there may be more. You only have yourselves to blame then.
