WIPocalypse 2015-January

I’m Angie. I’m 38, married 15 years, with a nearly 5 yr old son. I stitch about 1-2 hours a day.mNow that my son is older I sometimes stitch evenings I don’t work as well. I started stitching when I was 10ish, then took many years off until I was around 30.

Although I have participated in the past, I sat out last year. I am participating in WIPocalypse this year. You can learn all about WIPocalypse as well as sign up here.

My goals this year are to complete as many of the following as I can. Most of these will be new starts. I am proud to say missing from my list is Japanese garden, my chatelaine, which I finished. You can see pics a few entries back.

I stitch on a rotation. Currently one week Earthdancer, one week HAED, one week a small. As this first full moon came 5 days into the year the only one I have worked on is Earthdancer.
Here is my current progress. Stitched on Silkweaver’s fairyland 32 ct. Wexford linen
Here is a list of my goals for the year.

Crabby all year-may-raise the roof (Rabbits). I am stitching each month separate.

Cirque page finish

I finished page 2 of cirque des  couers. I am excited because 2 pages meets my yearly goal for this piece. WOOHOO.  Looks great too IMO.


Sorry the photo isn’t better. It wasn’t a great day for taking pictures.



Garden Party FINISHED

I simply couldn’t wait until my weekly sunday update. So here it is, just finished this morning.   I’m so excited by how it looks.   It was a fun stitch, though the border did get tiring by the fourth time.

I still like the dragonfly best, but then I do have a thing for dragonflies so……

The ladybug is my next favorite. So cute!

I love the blue flowers around the bumblebee

I had to frog twice on the butterfly. Those antenna, what a pain. Beginner mistake! 

Are you out of patience yet??

Garden Party- CCN- 28ct white evenweave. 1/1/11-8/5/11

I already have a spot picked out for it. I will start shopping goodwill for a frame. 

Now to decide what to put in it’s spot………………. you will have to wait until sunday to find out.


2011 Stitchy goals

I didn’t have goals for 2010.  I was 7 months pregnant this time last year and very large.

This year though, I’d like to set some goals.

1.  3 pages on Mistress
2.  finish Garden Series CCN
3   start and finish 1 additional small
4   do 2 ornaments
5   Participate in 4 exchanges
6.  Finish 1 page of Japanese Garden

I have NO idea if this is doable or reasonable even. We’ll see……..
