As the song from Gilmore Girls says “So welcome to my little corner of the world”. It’s all about me and my crafting – focusing around my love for stitching and sewing along with anything else that catches my eye. So welcome, grab a coffee and happy reading.

Wipocalypse 2014 - the first post

Wipocalypse is hosted by Measi at Measi's Musings and is a monthly SAL to try and get some of those wips in check. I've never been much of a serial starter but I took part in March madness last year as part of Theme-a-licious and this resulted in a basket full of wips that I've not done much with.

Each month has a topic and this month is introduce yourself and your wips. So I'm not really sure what to say that's not in my side bar biog. I love stitching florals and blackwork and quite a few dragons as hubby loves them. I like taking part in swaps especially ones like the travelling box I do with a small group of crafty friends. I'm more of a smalls stitcher than big projects although I have bigger projects planned for this year. I don't expect to finish the HAED on the list but progress would be good as it's been untouched for at least 3 years now.

So here are the projects in the WIP basket...
1. Big Bang Theory by Wee Little Stitches
2. Game of Thrones by xstitch my heart
3. Scissors biscornu
4. Donald Duck by Anchor
5. Keep calm bookmark
6. Toddlers sheep by Mouseloft
7. After the bath by Mouseloft
8. Traditional sampler by Anchor
9. Mother's Day garden by Mouseloft
10. QS Iris (HAED) by J Wall

As you can see the sampler, Iris and BBT are not in the pic as BBT is on my frame, the sampler you saw in my last post and the HAED is under the bed...somewhere! 

11. Fabric fan brooch
12. Chinese fabric cushion cover
13. Hexagon Christmas wreaths x4
14. Hexagon quilt
15. Felt Christmas lights garland
16. Prick and stitch bookmarks x 3 
17. Cushion cover for free motion embroidery panel
18. Do something with fabric fusion panel

Probable starts for 2014
1. Lizzie Kate stitcher in residence
2. Lizzie Kate work, pray, trust
3. Mouseloft dragon
4. Mouseloft giraffe
5. Giraffe silhouette 
6. Blackwork lady (WOXS)
7. Mother and baby Giraffes
8. Chinese dragon from latest cross stitcher. 
9. Scooby Doo by Wee Little Stitches

Some of the to do's are in pic below

There are also the 24 cover kits I plan on doing and the 12 Christmas ornaments from the Needlecraft Haven SAL 

I'm exhausted just thinking about it all!
