Easter Wipocalypse Report

I almost forgot to write and publish this month's report.  I started the weekend out thinking that I could show you not only some stitching finishes, but also some finished finishes, but that is not to be.  Life got in the way.  I do want to show you a quick pix of my framed  BAP project.  I really like the way the mat looks and the framing turned out.  Now I just have to hope that DGS  likes it whenever he gets it.  That isn't on the calendar yet, but hopefully soon.

This month I did start on another of my old time WIP's but I really didn't get very far with it.  I have come to understand the term confetti

Welcome Friends as of 04/09/12

Welcome Friends as of 01/01/2012
stitches with stitching this piece.  I also was "forced" to stitch on a couple of other pieces - explanation  to follow updated pix of the old WIP:
The progress on the letters of Welcome are obvious, but there was some other stitching done on the border flowered vine that is not so easy to see.  I hope to work on this a little more this  month, but I am going to be going to Myrtle Beach to stitch with some PALS in two weeks and we will be stitching on some other projects while there.

Sew Rabbit I Stitch
Started 03/27/12
Finished 04/05/12
On to the other projects that I was "forced" to do LOL.  Michele of Just Another Stitching Blog RAK'd me the I Stitch chart Sew Rabbit.  I felt it only right to try and get it stitched up.  So here it is, stitched on sixteen count scrap Silkweaver aida of which I forgot the name.  The chart called for the entire piece to be stitched with an overdyed white floss, but I wanted it to be a little more colorful, so I used some DMC.  The letters are in DMC 503, the pink was DMC 3727.  The brown bunnies are GAST Cidermill Brown.  I really like the color combinations, and I have some great plans for finishing it - hopefully soon.

The second piece I was "forced" to work on was Easter Bunny by Victorian Motto which I won in one of her amazing giveaways.  I have started it, but I don't have it finished yet, so it will go into the WIPocalypse report next time.  Oh!  I almost forgot I did do another piece which could be used as my monthly seasonal piece.  The picture is pretty dark, but it is Lizzie Kate's March Block.  It is stitched on pale yellow 14ct aida with the called for overdyed floss except for the black which is DMC 310.  For some reason overdyed
black flosses and me don't get along.  They seem to shred on me.

Well, this is my WIP ocalypse post for April.  I hope  everyone is still having as much fun and getting as much out of this SAl as I am. 

I want to thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving such lovely comments.  They really do give me a boost and more motivation to keep on stitching! Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time.

Your 'Southpark' piece looks great all matted and framed. Your new WIP looks awesome and you made a lot of progress. Your other finished stitched pieces are very pretty. Wish I was able to come play at the beach with y'all, have fun.
