September WIPocalypse New Starts


WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi's Musings

Each month we have to share the projects we want to complete before the End Of The World.  Since 2011 I have chosen a number of projects to focus on that year, starting with my "11 in '11" and increasing to "21 in '21" for this year.  This month I stitched on 6 of them and met 2 WIPGO Goals.  

5. Nora Corbett Gathering Eggs - a finish!

Measi always gives us a topic to discuss too:

September  – List five projects you have unstarted in your stash that you’d like to start something in the (relatively) near future.

Only five?  That's so difficult!  But I dived into the box next to me and pulled out these four (technically seven because of the seasons!)

First up, Princess Elliana by Mirabilia.  I have an idea for a conversion for this one.
Next, the Seasons from Cricket Collection.  I'd like to stitch these as cubes with one letter per cube.
I've not stitched a Blue Flower design yet and I love Night Walked Down.
Next to her is The Halloween Sampler by Cottage Garden.  I even have the thread for that one!

The fifth design set is one I saw on Rachel and Tiff's blogs as part of their Para-Olympic Stitching.  These will be a series of 12 Dragons.  Even better, the fabric was a gift from Rachel!  It's a piece of 32 count Autumnal Woodland by Crafty Kitten which was wrong for the project Rachel bought it for.  I used it to stitch an Ink Circles' Mandala and have enough left for these dragons.

Here are three pieces cut to size for three of the dragons:

And here are the colours used for all the designs:

Finally, there will be a Hallowe'en Trick or Treat Blog Hop as usual this year. I am sure you all know how it works but for those who need a reminder - here's a link to last year's

If you want to take part, just leave a comment here or email me if you are a "no reply" person. I need an email address for you to take part in this hop.
