I love it all: embroidery, canvaswork, quilting, crochet. So much to do, so little time.

WIPocalypse 2012 - July Report

Hey Blog Buddies,

The year is half over, but am I half done with my WIPocalypse list?  Uhhh, no.  Here's what I accomplished last month:

This was a quick start and finish.
(And see, it did get framed!)
I have had this Lizzie*Kate chart for several years.

Here is another start of a chart that I've had for a while.
(Raise the Roof's Crabby All Year)
The finish on this one won't be quite as speedy.
If I can complete two squares per month,
it should get done this year.

Rainforest Revisited got a tiny bit of love.
Here's where I was at last month:

And here's where I'm at now:

I stitched the three squares in the current top row,
which is actually the second row of the piece.

I also recently started Plum Street Sampler's Boris.
That didn't turn out too well (see previous post).
But here is the new and improved Boris:

He looks so much better (IMO).
The area of the fabric that I frogged
almost looks like aida cloth now (heheh)!
But those puny-looking letters have to be redone, too!

Will everything on my list be completed
before the end of the year?
Realistically, no.
I have a fair amount of commitment stitching
staring me in the face.
And there are two or three recently-purchased (cough, cough) charts
that are just begging to be stitched.

But I'm pretty certain Rainforest will get done.
And there will be other finishes from the list, too.
Stay tuned...

Hope your month has been productive.
Thanks for visiting!

I guess I should be halfway done too, lol. I think you're making good progress, it looks like you've gotten a lot done anyway.

Chris said...

What a great line-up! You've done tremendously well on your WIPs. I'm particularly fond of the Crabby project, it's one I want to stitch too :-)

Rainforest Revisited is really beautiful, can't wait to see more! I like your smalls, too, it's always gratifying to have finishes.
