May 2018 WIPocalypse Check-in

Welcome All!

It is time for the May WIPocalypse Check-in.

The goal of the WIPocalypse is to make progress on your stitching projects before the world ends! We show our progress monthly and answer a question so that we can all get to know each other a little better.

Question of the Month for May is:

Where do you love to shop for stash?

When I lived in Illinois I was LUCKY enough to have three cross stitch shops within about an hours drive from my home. When I had to have needed something I could just jump in the car and go shopping! 

I would shop at either Inspired Needle, House of Stitches or Maddie Max which is now closed down. I never realized how fortunate I was to be able to go into one of these stores and shop for stash until I moved here to Tucson. Let me tell you... there is NOTHING here! To shop for needlework supplies now I would have to either drive over two hours (which I plan on doing one day) or settle for either Joann's, Michaels or Hobby Lobby and we all know how that is. Now I mostly shop online. I do a bunch of shopping at Stoney Creek and of course Etsy is a very dangerous place to browse when you are bored.

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

You can see everyone that checked in this month here!
Now if you'll excuse me I need to go see what everyone is up to!

Faith: Oh my goodness you have some great progress going on here.
I am lucky to have a shop about an hour away Stitchville USA is a full stash store with a big and I mean big back room for clearance which is a lot of yummy stuff on sale.
I am sad you have to drive so far.
