Q: What is WIPGO?
A: It's like Bingo for your WIPs.
The idea is to make a board with 25 squares, add a goal to each square, each month the Admin call 2 numbers and you try reach those two goals.
When you complete a row or column, you can reward yourself with something nice. A new start? A new chart? An uninterrupted afternoon of stitching? Your choice.
This is my board:
The numbers called for January were 6, 13 and 18. Now, some people have 13 as a free space so the Admin calls an extra number for the month that it appears. Hence 3 numbers for January. Which is good for me because 18 isn't going to be ticked off until May! You don't have to meet the goal in the month called, but you can't tick the box off until it is met.
I worked on number 13 first. This is my Hands On Design Scary Apothecary series. I stitched 3 last year and have 3 on my list for this year. Here's where I got to on Cackle Lozenges:
Week 1 - Hands on Design OR CCN Village
Week 2 - WIPGO project 1
Week 3 - WIPGO project 2
Week 4 - Tiny Decisions App chooses
I did consider buying fabrics in the six different background colours and stitching them without the background as ornaments. But it became clear it was going to be difficult to find all the colours in the same fabric count and type so I dropped that idea.
Finally, I will be running the Secret Stitching Sweetheart Blog Hop on Valentine's Day.
It's really very simple, all you have to do is email me a picture of something you have stitched which is suitable for a stitching friend on Valentine's Day. It could be a heart, or a pair of cute creatures, or the word "love" or anything which warms your heart. Really anything you think a fellow stitcher would like to receive in her email Inbox. It can be something you've stitched in the past or something you've made especially for this year. It could also be quilted or sewn this year as I know some of my followers do other crafts too.
Send me the email by 10th February.
When I have all the emails I will randomise them and send one to each participant on 13th February. Then on 14th February you must post the picture you receive onto your blog under the heading
There will be a list on my blog of everyone joining in, so check out all the blogs and find out who got your picture and identify yourself in their comments as their
Does that make sense to everyone? I hope so!
If you'd like to be involved then leave a comment on this post or send me an email if you are "no-reply". I'll be putting little reminders up from time to time and will email on 9th February to make sure you send the pic in time.
