2012 WIPocalypse - First Full Moon

Hi, fellow WIP stitchers, as well as stitchers of Smalls and Cottages.  It has really been fun checking in to see all the progress and finishes already this year, partly as a result of the different online groups that everyone has joined. 

I have pictures of the meager progress I have made thus far this year, including some stitching on two of my WIPs and the start of one project that I included on my WIPocalypse list to try to complete this year.

Blackbird Designs - Loose Feathers 2011 - Autumn
 I managed to do a little stitching on this piece in the short time since I last posted a picture.  I still have that enormous (seems like) bird and branch to go.  Then I can move onto Winter.  I really would like to have this finished before whatever Loose Feathers are coming in 2012 show up.
Shakespeare's Peddler - A Weary World Rejoices
 I spent most of my time on this piece.  The color is terrible...I took the picture after dark.  You probably can't see, but I have inserted some snowflakes above the moose instead of some critters that Theresa had charted.  I plan to have some snowflakes on the other side of the house, too.  As already noted, I am using my own color choices on this project.
Jeanette Douglas - My Story
I had included this piece on my WIP list even though it was not started on January 1.  I really hope to finished it this year.  I just totally fell in love with this design and the fibers used.  I am using the fabric and fibers called for on this.

I'll spend a little while tonight scouting around to see progress reports.  Too, too, too many fun projects and ideas, too little time!


  1. Beautiful progress on your pieces. Loose Feathers is looking amazing.

  2. Super starts on you WIPs. It is fun to look at all the projects on all the different challenges. I'll post tomorrow night. BBD Loose Feathers is lovely. I would really like to stitch this, but, like you said....too little time. I love your wooden thread holder. It's beautiful!

  3. Beautiful progress on your WIPs!! I need to get going on my Loose Feathers before BBD announces what they're doing this year! LOL Nice start on the Jeannette Douglas piece, too!

  4. well done on your progress
    I love your thread sorter ^^

  5. I adore the Loose Feathers! I have those in the ever-growing pile, and every time someone posts their progress, I want to drop everything. Love the snowflake touch on Christmas piece..every winter piece should be adorned with snow flakes.

  6. What beautiful projects you have in the works! Good luck on that giant bird in the middle section--he really is an imposing looking fellow :)
