November WIPocalypse Ornament Finishing


WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi's Musings

Each month we have to share the projects we want to complete before the End Of The World.  Since 2011 I have chosen a number of projects to focus on that year, starting with my "11 in '11" and increasing to "23 in '23" for this year.  This month I only stitched on 2 of my WIPs.

3. Chatelaine Gardens of London

So much detail in those little guardsmen!

18. Circle Cross Blackwork Tarot


The full list can be seen here - WIPocalypse and "23 in '23"

Finally, Measi always gives us a topic to discuss too:

November – What is your favourite way to finish ornaments and/or smalls?

You mean apart from "popping them in a folder to be finished later"?  I call this The Ron Method.  Because they will be finished Later Ron hahaha.

A lot of my Smalls have been scrapbooked as I simply don't have space for loads of smalls everywhere.  I do try finish my Christmas Ornaments and have a lovely garland I put up each year with some of my ornaments and some gifted by my lovely friends.

Here's a couple of photos from last Christmas:

Mostly simple pillows.  Although I do like a 3D finish and here's my festive bookshop from Living on the Rainbow:

Haha, I think all stitchers are guilty of Ron-ing! Stitching's too much fun to be spending time on finishing things off!
Love your ornie garland. Maybe, just maybe a couple more Just Nan ornies might get added to this year's.

Gardens of London is looking fantastic! Your garland with ornaments is just lovely.

Yep I have a lot of Ron's too unfortunately. The tarot piece is so neat. Love them.

I hadn't heard the term 'Ron Method' before but I'm totally stealing it! Great progress on the Zodiacs again, they are really coming together nicely.
