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 was my board at the start of the month:
You can see that I am starting to get some blocks coloured in as I complete the projects. For March the numbers called were 10 and 24. 24 is my Just Nan Summer Sampler which won't happen until the Summer (funny that) so I can't do anything there. It has made me rethink about putting seasonal goals such as Maynia and the Longest Day Marathon. Next year I will just include one and make it the Free Space.
The other number was Hallowe'en at Hawk Run Hollow and I was so pleased to get a block finish. I started in the centre for this one which is a double block. Rather than have a line down the centre I have stitched over to block 6 in some places.
Here's where I was at the start of WIPGO Weekend last week:
Finally, it's time to sign up for the Annual Easter Treasure Hunt. If you would like to take part this year, just leave a comment here. The week before Easter I will send you a letter of the alphabet which will form part of the mystery phrase. On Good Friday you will post that letter along with a photo of something seasonal that you have stitched (could be Easter or Spring or just something cheerful and sunny or floral). We all hop around like little bunnies to find the Mystery Phrase!
