Well, my WIPocalypse report is going to be pretty different. I have not worked on any of the original list of WIP's this month, so I guess I am in trouble for that. And, I really haven't gotten too far on most everything I worked on because I got really ADD this month and worked on many different things. Before I get to the stitching I have done this month, I thought you all would like to see how my Autumn Leaves needlepoint piece looks now that it has been framed. I really like the frame, and this is one of the pieces I am going to put in the State Fair next week.
Now to what I have been stitching. I have spent the most time working on this Halloween piece. I can not say that it has been a pleasure to stitch. As a matter of fact, I have decided that I will not stitch on 18ct dark fabric anymore after this. I am having a good bit of difficulty seeing it. I am not sure whether this will be a piece for MB yet or not. I really want to get this one finished because I have picked out a bunch more for the exchanges I really have to get to. Wish me luck!
The other project that has taken up a bit of my month is another needlepoint piece. I know, I really shouldn't be stitching on this when I have so many other pieces I should be doing, but this one is so much fun, and MUCH easier to see. This one is called Liberty Star, and I did think (rationalize) that it was appropriate for me to be stitching it in July. It is also a Nancy Needles chart. I am not sure you can really see this, but I love the way the pearl cotton floss shines!
Lastly, I am taking a big trial step on this piece. I found some scrap fabric in my stash, that I believe is 28ct Jobelan, and it is so soft and lovely to feel, that I decided that I had to try one more time to stitch on something other than aida. I can't work on it very long at a sitting, because it is very hard for me to see, and I have to take out stitches all the time because I have put the needle in the wrong spot, but I do think it is coming along. I think it will take me a long time to decide if I want to put out this much effort on anything else, but we'll see.
I am not sure what I will be able to show you on the next WIPocalypse report, because I am going to be working more hours for the next two weeks, and then I will be out of town for the next week. Doesn't look too good for stitching time.
Again, I want to thank you for visiting my blog and for leaving such lovely comments. It really does make my day to see them!
Until next time, have a happy, healthy, stitchy time!
