WIPocalypse Update 02/28/18

It is WIPocalypse time!

That means it is time for a monthly recap of your stitching and a chance to participate in a discussion with other stitchers through our blogs. I think that this month I made some good stitching progress.

First I stitched a Valentine for my Grandson

You Have A Pizza My Heart

Then I stitched a little on a WIP

I stitched and finished two tags and started another way back in 2016 

Now I finished that one and started another

Next up was a new start, something else for Jacob (he is one lucky kid)

This month's WIPocalypse discussion is...
Gadgets!  Show us your favorite stitching gadgets! 

I have a few things that I can NOT stitch without but I will only list a few here. LOL

First up I need my LAMP (the more light the better, especially when your eyes are getting older.

Next up is my TEA CUP! I use this to keep all my stuff rounded up in the same place. I used to spend so much time wondering where did I put the needle threader this time, or the bobbin of floss or my magnifying glass and so on and so forth! LOL This helps me a lot!

Next is my q-snaps and the occasional hoop. I HAVE to have my fabric pulled tight when I stitch so these are serious necessities.

Then I LOVE my NEEDLE MINDERS! I always need someplace to put my needle or else they end up on the floor, in my keyboard, chair, clothes and who knows where else... some have just been lost forever!

These are just some of my minders! 
Others are on projects or stuck to other things around the house.

Well now I will be looking around to see what everyone else's gadgets are! If you posted your favorites make sure you let me know so I won't miss seeing yours!

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next time!

You do love your gadgets! That teacup is a brilliant idea; I’m going to have to start something like that. And you do have one lucky grandson! I’d love to hear more about the tags. Are they luggage tags? Gift tags?

Linda said...

Lovely stitching Faith. I don't use needleminders and only stitch in hand.


Deb said...

Well done on your stitching!! Your penguin is adorable! Wow, thats a great collection of needle minders!

Katie said...

I forgot to mention needle minders. I'm addicted to them too but you are a lot worse than me haha. I love them though. Just gotta have bling ya know. Beautiful progress on your projects.

RJ said...

Your projects are all great Faith but I really, really love the penguin for Jacob. That is so adorable!!! I need light too. I bought a lightbulb that goes on your regular lamp that is suppose to give you daylight. I also like my fabric tight and have lots of q snaps. But I only have one needle minder that I got for Christmas. I have a long way to catch up with you. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

You did great on February, wonderful stitching!

You have so cute needleminders! :)

I have some q-snaps, hoops, but I prefer to stitch in hand!
Your lamp looks so great!

Have a wonderful weekend! Happy March!

A very productive month, Faith. And I'd say you love your gadgets, don't you? I only use my magnifier lamp but without it I wouldn't be able to stitch. So I have to admit that I love my only gadget dearly :)))

Justine said...

That is a serious needleminder collection! I love your "pizza" Valentine for Jacob, it's so cute.

Jaret said...

Jacob does sound like one lucky kid. Hope he appreciates it. LOL. Love your needleminder collection!
