September WIPocalypse Update

Alright for once I have many pictures to show which is rather exciting haha! It’s time once again to update on the WIPocalypse pieces I’ve been working on the past month. First up is my progress on Blue Moon:

The confetti was starting to drive me a bit bonkers so I found a nice block of color to work on- her arm! There are still a couple different shades in that bit, but on this piece it was nice to be able to do more than one stitch at a time J.

To combat the confetti I’ve got Snow White to help me out.

I’m continuing down the left side of her skirt for now, but it’s actually coming along quicker than I expected.

Next, I finally have a completed figure on my Sailor Moon project!

This is Hawk’s-Eye and he is the first villain of the piece and the second character overall. Based on my current speed I can tell this project is going to take longer than initially planned but I’m having fun so I don’t mind J.

Now for something I haven’t shown for a while, here’s my London project:

Yes, I actually completed another square this month yay! Who knows I may finish this one yet haha! (Maybe I’ll just concentrate on getting halfway first though. Baby steps).

Finally I thought I’d end with showing my progress on the picture I’m making for my mom.

This is one I haven’t shown on here yet as for the longest time I was stitching it in secret for her. Well, I’m not very good at keeping secrets from her and after being good for nearly a year (!) I finally caved and showed her. Now though I can post updates here so it’s all good haha! This is the first HAED piece I started about a year and a half ago. It’s a tiny treasure, the sampler letter D (obviously J) by Selena Fenech. I’m hoping to finish it up by Christmas, but I’ve heard that one before!

Have a great stitching week!

Oops, was it the Hermitage?

Looks like I let this one get by me this time. I do have a little bit of progress to report but lately I’ve been reading more than stitching. One of my favorite authors was in town on tour doing a reading and signing books so I’ve been madly trying to get through a bunch.J The event was a lot of fun, but I don’t get much stitching in when I’m reading all the time.J

So, on the stitching front now that David is finished I’ve been working on a couple different things trying to decide which one is the next closest to being complete. One of those is Snow White so here is where she is at now:
I started her skirt finally after not working on her for nearly a year. Looks like more giant blocks of color are in my future though, haha!

Have a great stitching week!
