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.

I was stitching away on Garden Bugs. My next color is the one I am out of. I thought of skipping it and moving to the next color. There is so much counting though that I am afraid if I skip it i will end up miscounting.   I think I am going to move onto the next design.  I wanted to stitch each design before moving on, but so much for plans. At least this way I get to keep stitching on it. I don’t want to put it aside as I have a spot for it in the bathroom that is waiting. 

After taking it up to iron to reposition in my qsnaps, I discovered a dirty spot. *Sigh* can’t win today.  I tried to clean it off. Hopefully I will be able to put it back on the qsnaps tonight.

Tomorrow is the last day of this rotation, so I hope to get to stitch a bit more on it before I go back to JG.  Then I will stitch a week on my HAED.
