She's got legs!

The girl that is, not the bird.  The bird has a body though so that’s something.

I’d really like to get this finished soon before I start too many other things. J
At any rate my WIPocalypse projects need attention so maybe that will keep the starting bug at bay.  Till the next full moon at least.

Happy stitching World.

IHSW February

Every time I look at Be Hippie I think it’s close to being finished.  If I was stitching on it every time I looked at it, it probably would be. J

Still it’s coming along.  A little more done on the top and the bottom.  I changed the flower in her hair from white to variegated and was pleased (?) to find the white in the bird doesn’t show up any better.  They both get backstitched so that should help.
Nothing else new to report.  Have a great week.
Happy stitching World.

Stitch, Rip, Repeat

That was my yesterday.  Stitch the part, notice it didn’t line up, rip it out and try again.  Now I finally notice that the reason it still wasn’t right was because the first part wasn’t right. Sigh.  There was only one thing to do – move on to something else. J
So I added some to Be Hippie.  I only had to redo one ray on the sun.  The bottom of her top (?) and the flower were variegated.  Apparently one stitch at a time was easier for me to follow.  Did I have the headband in last time?  I liked the colors in the word hippie so much I blended them together.

Today I went back to what I was working on yesterday.  I took out the offending section (scissors are my friend) and started over.  Then I kept going.  You’ll never guess what happened next.  I finished!

That’s all for now.
Happy stitching World.

WIPocalypse - Feb - Tiki Stitches

Project 1 – Ballroom
There are two things about this that are hard to believe.  One is that after all those years of sitting around it’s become twice as large as it was.  The second is that I’ve messed it up already.  Actually that part I believe.  For the sake of progress those two stitches will just have to stay the way they are.

Project 2 – Mythical Dragon
I thought I could move this out in two directions.  Quickly learning the error of my ways I settled for one.  So now we have the top of one wing.  Part of it anyway.  Very soon I should be able to answer the question of which is more annoying – confetti stitches or half stitches in 3 or 4 strands.

Project 3 – Do Not Disturb
It looks like I took the title a little too seriously.  Still there’s some sand on the bottom.  If I need a different color I can start on the green flip flops.

That’s all for this month.
Happy stitching World.

Love is in the air.

Actually around here it was snow.  Snow that led to a spontaneous stitching weekend. This gave me a chance to finish that last word and add some pink hearts.  I should keep going and complete that one side.  Which means the next part will be the headband and the sun rays. J

See you for the WIPocalypse check in.

Happy stitching World.
