Last day of May and I finally have time to post my WIPocalypse update.
I mostly worked on the Mira RR and a little on a band sampler RR which returned to me a couple months ago. I did some knitting but most of my time was taken up with moving to a new house and unpacking. Not alot of stitching but progress was made.

Here is the Christmas Reindeer themed Mira RR which I worked on for Sophia.

I stitched “Vixen”. Could not take a picture of the entire RR because my husband had the camera and he was in Vancouver,BC with my son. This image is a scan of what I stitched. I did not do the borders just the reindeer.


A bit late on my update for the WIPocalypse, but I think I have a good excuse. We moved into a new house about 2 1/2 weeks ago. So the last 4 -5 weeks we have been packing, cleaning and moving.

I do have a few things that I worked on this last month. First I finished a pair of baby booties

which will be given to a friend along with a blanket and toy. The blanket is coming along and the toy is knit but not put together yet.

These are my current knitting adventures.

My stitching adventures include:

1. a few more letters finished on my Medieval Sampler

2. a small amount done on one of my Crazy January Challenges, the Letter R for my daughter Rachel

3. more set up stitching for the Band Sampler RR which begins next month

4. a little more stitching on a mystery sampler that I started a couple months ago

5. the only stitching thing I finished this last month just before the move was my part in the Mira RR that I am currently working on

That is my update for the WIPocalypse.

My TUSAL is pitiful, mostly some yarn tails.

Lots more boxes to unpack and I can’t find all my stitching stuff yet, slowly but surely it will all get done.

Have a happy stitching day.

I am posting this a couple days late but work got in the way. I did not have a lot of progress on my project that I chose for this last month. I had decided to focus on a sampler I designed back in 2004 and of course it has been sitting unfinished since then. I was able to do a few more letters on my breaks at work. Even though I was not able to spend much time on it I still have a little progress and that is what this year is all about.

The other stitching projects I have been working on are a Mira RR and my set up for a Band Sampler RR that begins in May. I stitched a Santa from Christmas Wishes for Kathy’s Christmas themed Mira and now I am stitching the lady from Rose of Sharon for Catherine’s Rose themed Mira RR. My Band Sampler RR starting in May is based on Indigo Rose band sampler patterns. Whenever I do a band sampler I organize it to the nth degree. I usually have all the spaces planned out for all the stitchers. This is what I have done so far:

The other project I have been working on is a knitted baby blanket and booties for a lady at work who is due in May.

So a lot of stitching and knitting going on just not a lot on my designated WIPocalypse project.

Several stitching projects in this post. They have all come together on the first full moon of the year.

1. WIPocalypse 2012 – a group created by a fellow stitcher to work on the multitudes of WIP’s that most of us have. I have totes full. So I decided to join and here is my work on Aunt Ina by Indigo Rose so far. I was able to get some of the satin stitching done on the center motif.



At least it is a start at completing some of my WIP’s.
Thanks Measi for giving me a jump start on finishing up my numerous WIP’s.

2. Day 8 and Day 9 Crazy January 2012 Challenge.

Day 8 is Peach Tree Cottage, I did half of the roof of the cottage.

Day 9 is Live,Love,Laugh and Be Thankful

Pretty good starts for this weekend stitching.

3. 2011 Band Sampler with the TWWRR group
This is my contribution to Sophia’s TW border Band Sampler. I decided to do the top border of Holly and Ivy Sampler since it was Christmas time when I received the RR. I love Teresa Wentzler band samplers because the borders are gorgeous.

Lots of stitching this last week and weekend.
