2012 WIPocalypse-The January Edition

WIPocalypse-January Edition

2012 has gotten off to a very slow start for me, at least in the needleworking/crafting portion of my life. But my mojo has finally kicked in and I found myself working on Sarah Elizabeth Brooke from The Scarlett House. My intentions had been for this project to my last finish for 2011 and as you can see I was no where close on December 31st. I had also thought that my needlework would be less wrinkledy in 2012 but my iron has gone missing so I stretched and flattened as much as I could. I am stitching Sarah Elizabeth using DMC and the Crescent Colours conversion for the grass area.

DMC & Crescent Colours


36ct Vintage Light Examplar


A new start for 2012, in an attempt to get more seasonal stitching accomplished, is Prairie Schooler's February:

DMC


32ct Lambswool




Not much progress but I still have a good bit of time before February 1st.




I hope everyone has a very successful year of stitching and success can mean finishing that BAP or squeezing in a few stitches whenever there's a quiet moment.


Thanks to Measi and Measi's Musings » WIPocalypse: Basic Info I hope to make significant progress on many older projects and add some new into the mix. I also hope the challenge encourages me to blog a bit more in 2012.




Keep your fingers crossed that my iron shows up between now and my next post which hopefully won't be a month away.

Good for you making some progress on your WIPocolypse projects. I need to do my progress posting tonite. Your brick house is looking good, I see many people are stitching this design.

Hope you find your iron soon!

It's so good to see you posting again, Melissa! Your WIPs are beautiful!! Love Sarah Lizzie, and that PS February is one of my all time favorites of their monthly series.

Don't feel bad--I have my iron, I iron my stitching, and still it looks like it was pulled out of the back end of a cat!

Sarah Elizabeth Brooke is such a beautiful sampler and so is your progress!

Great start of the PS piece, as well.

Sarah is looking pretty gorgeous! And I really like the February design and look forward seeing it finished!

Ironing. Yuck. I ironed my pieces before my last post but you'd never know it! A few wrinkles hurt anything/anyone.

Michelle said...
