April WIPocalypse Check-in

Hello Friends!

This week I can't not show my stitching piece as it is a gift for someone and I don't want them to see it. 😊

So instead I will be posting about the WIPocalypse!

You can see everyone that checked in this month here!

I stitch with a rotation where I stitch a piece for a week then it goes in the back of the WIP box. When that one goes in, I pick up the next piece from the front of the WIP box to stitch on. This way everybody gets a turn eventually at getting some Xs put in.

First up, my monthly recap!  This month I stitched on the following pieces...

Nintendo SAL
Designer - Armada Designs
New Start 03/26/18
Progress as of 04/01/18

Scary Night Halloween
Designer - Stoney Creek
First Stitch 02/26/18
Progress as of 03/04/18

Progress as of 04/08/18

Christmas Rules
Designer - Lizzie*Kate
First Stitch 01/12/18
Progress as of 03/11/18

Progress as of 04/15/18

From My Heart To Yours
Designer - Carla Rizzie
First Stitch sometime in 2011
Progress as of 2011

Finished 04/21/18

Then I designed a small piece for the other half of the biscornu

Hearts All Around
Designer - Faithfully Stitching Designs
New Start 04/22/18
Progress as of 04/22/18

and I have the gift piece that I finished up yesterday!
I will show it next time

Now for this month's topic - Talk to us about your longest-running WIP or UFO.

Well my two very longest running pieces are:

Beaded Elegance Ornaments
First Stitch 11/01/04
Progress as of 12/21/04

Don't really know why Beaded Elegance is still languishing in the WIP Box because I REALLY like the designs that are in this kit. Hopefully it will be finished by some Christmas in the future, it just won't be this one!

Flowers of the Month
Designer - EMS
First Stitch February 2011
Progress as of 07/15/12

This one was part of a group SAL. The group kinda lost interest in it and "broke up" and that ended my stitching on it. It is all on one piece of fabric and I think all the box outlines are already stitched and just waiting for the flowers. Guess I need to get busy!!

Thanks for stopping by,
see ya next month for
another WIPocalypse update!

Hi Faith: I do wish I could have more then one design going at a time, I have OCD over stitching.
You have some beautiful designs going.


Manuela said...

Happy Stitchng.

Great progress this month Faith. If I only worked on 1 a week it would take me 14 years and 22 months to get through all of them. lol


Katie said...

Beautiful work on everything. Keep it up!

A lovely round-up of your stitching for the month. Of course, the Stoney Creek is my favourite, but they're all great and all so different. Do you think your longest WIPs will ever be stitched on again? :)

The Dimensions ornaments are adorable!

Carol said...
