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

WIPocalypse 2012 - First August Report

Hey Blog Buddies,

First, I'd like to thank everyone for all your kind comments.  They warm the cockles of my heart.  I love you guys!

This might be my shortest WIPocalypse post ever!  It's not that I haven't been making stuff--it just that the stuff I've been working on hasn't been on my list, and "my" rule is that it has to be on the list you see in the sidebar to be featured in a WIPocalypse update!

So, as for Boris, the poor fellow saw no action since the last full moon.

I did have a big finish about a week or two ago, Rainforest Revisited, which many people saw, so I won't bore you with redundant photos.  It's still at the framers.  If you missed the post about it, click here.

And last, I did manage to stitch July from Crabby All Year:

This one is very appropriate for a lot of us this year!

All of the months have their own buttons,
but I won't be sewing them on until all the stitching is done.
July actually has four buttons: two large white and two small gold.
Stacked, they give the appearance of a fried egg.
I couldn't resist putting them on there to show what it will look like.

I did start another month, but won't show it until it's done,
hopefully by the time that the blue moon appears
at the end of this month!

Until next time, hope you get lots of time to stitch!
And thanks for visiting!

Could the crabby all year for July be any more accurate?! I don't know what's coming for August, but maybe you should think before stitching it!

Too funny!
I am so over the heat, all I do is wish for October.

From what I'm feeling outside today, you could restitch the same chart for August. Thank the Lord for air conditioning.
