WIPocalypse Update for May
I'm still here and stitching for the WIPocalypse. This stitch along features works in progress that I hope to finish before the world ends.
This month I managed to put stitches into several projects. Shown above is my "Spring Sampler". I stitched the Lily of the Valley section, and a bit of the frame to the right of that.
I always enjoy stitching on this sampler during the Spring! *Bonus: the Lily of the Valley is my birth flower.
Continuing on ... I also stitched a bit on my "Summer Sampler". I stitched the cream background behind the "camp" section and added the "Wish you were here" cursive text.
I finished most of the butterfly in the top left of "Butterfly Forest". I have a bit more color to stitch and then the back stitching to complete the butterfly.
I also stitched on my "Bothy Threads cut thru' Pirate Ship". I added more of the ship.
Finally, I have been working on "Hummingbird and Fuchsias". This is a printed piece. I have such a hard time getting the stitches even as I stitch on the printed areas of the cotton fabric. I am having to let it be "not perfect" and it seems to be looking fine despite my "not perfect" stitching.
I made quite a bit of progress with the leaves - but do have lots of back stitching to add.
Question of the Month: Tell us about a piece that you absolutely loved stitching.
Such a hard question. I have so many projects that I loved stitching. (I really love stitching the bothy threads cut thru' kits!)
I will just post a couple of my favorites.
Nature's Alphabet by Sandy Orton. This kit had only about a dozen colors. Simple and straight forward. No blended colors, no fractional stitches, no back stitching. It was fun and easy to stitch.
I also enjoyed stitching "Simple Blessings" by Sandy Orton. I opted to stitch it in red and black. It was another simple stitch with no blending or fractional stitching. Easy to follow and a lovely finish.
That's all I have for my update this month.
