WIPocalypse August - Part 2

My serial starting ways were in remission this month (for the most part).  I did of course find enough other things to distract myself with to make sure I didn’t get too far with the Summer Ball.

The good thing is when I make it through the confetti in this little section I’ll be into blocks of longer lines.  Those are much better for my sense of progress. J

 Happy stitching World.

IHSW Monday

Not bad!  I filled in the face on Betty.  Little weird at the moment but its coming along nicely I think.

Happy stitching World!

IHSW - Friday night

It’s time for this month’s International Hermitage and Stitch Weekend.  I have great stitching plans, as always.  All that remains to be seen is how much stitching time I actually get.

To get the weekend off to a good start, I thought I’d just show off some recent progress. J

First – Betty - she has hair!!
Next I want to fill in her face.

Last month I decided as one of my many starts to do a Christmas piece.  Of course the idea was to finish it in July, which didn’t happen. So I turned it into my Olympic stitching and managed to finish it last Sunday.  It being Lizzie Kate’s 2009: Santa “I’ll get my elves on that!”

All I need to do is turn it into – something.  I’m thinking flat fold but I’ve come across two different ways to do that (so far).  Good thing there’s still time to decide.

Here’s to a great weekend!

Happy stitching World.

WIPocalypse August Part 1

Stunning things would happen to this – if I worked on it more. J

That might be considered a side effect of starting too many things.  But I’m pretty sure there’s no cure for that except to just keep stitching!

Happy stitching World!
