A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
The main focus of my WIPocalypse this year is my "14 in '14" a list of 14 projects I wanted to complete in 2014. In the last month I have worked on four of the list. Here is the current stitching status of each one:
6. Primitive Hare - Spooky Countdown, the bottom half of a cat!
7. The Little Stitcher - 12 Days of Christmas
9. Just Nan - Winter Typography
12. A Mon Ami Pierre - Noel Blanc
Look, a lovely alphabet after all that long border!
Measi also gives us a topic to discuss:
It’s halfway to Christmas. Do you start your holiday stitching this
early? If so, what do you hope to accomplish this year?
Well, I think the pictures speak for themselves this month! I don't usually start stitching for Christmas until after Hallowe'en which is my favourite stitching holiday. But when I started stitching Noel Blanc for last year's WIPocalypse it became obvious that unless I stitched it during the year I would not complete it for many Christmasses to come. So I started my habit of stitching on it each day when my younger son is in the bath. So just one or two threads an evening and it's gone from here:
Not bad for six months. Slow and steady does it.
As well as Noel Blanc I will have the 12 Days of Christmas by The Little Stitcher completed. I am unsure how I will finish them. I am leaning towards a 12 apeture multi-frame with some nice wintery mounts for each one.
The rest of my festive stitching will be based upon whatever grabs me from the JCS Christmas Ornie issue. I try not to plan too much in case something grabs me and demands to be stitched! I've just looked back at last Decemeber's blog posts and discovered the only seasonal piece I stitched was the Advent Calendar by The Little Stitcher. Here's a reminder of my Advent Tree:
Finally, back to Summer! The Summer Postcard Blog Hop is underway. To take part just email me a photo of something you have stitched on the theme Gardens with a nice message, plus an optional photo of your own garden. For more details click on the Garden photo to the right.
