I'm a bit late with this month's wipocalypse post. It's been a crazy busy week as my eldest has left primary school today. We've had various leavers events this week so I've been dishing out drinks at the inflatables party on Wednesday, leavers disco and parents drinks in the pub last night and tonight we've had a family movie. We watched Ant Man, I did find some bits rather amusing but for the most it seemed rather predictable.
Any hoo, back on to wipocalypse. I've not done a huge amount on the sampler this week with everything that's been going on but I did finish the butterflies.
They were a cover kit from Crazy. I managed to squeeze a 4th butterfly on the fabric and my daughter picked greens for the final one.
So on to next month's wipocalypse:
So here are my plans:
Plum street sampler 12 days - finish days 5 to 8
That blimmin' winter biscornu - finish the thing!!
Bunny card - finish
Blackwork seasons - finish summer and any more progress I can make.
My plan is to do 3 days on 12 days and then rotate daily through the rest and then back to the start. Theoretically this will cover points 1 and 2. I love the idea of the Olympic Rings challenge - 12 days covers red and green, biscornu is stitched on blue fabric and of course black work covers the black! I've nothing yellow so I'll shoehorn something in somewhere!
I might even pinch Jo's medal idea and award myself gold medals if I complete any of the above, plus bonus medals for anything I make significant progress on during that period if I reach my targets.
This challenge runs 5th - 21st August so I shall carry on with the anchor sampler until the 5th and then see how things are doing. I've a few new kits in the basket calling me rather loudly...
Have a great weekend.
