WIPocalypse October

 Faces of Faery 90 I just finished my week on this one
 Little Fairies at Play.  Still pushing to finish page 9 before the end of the year.

Summer Sensation made an unexpected appearance.

We are almost done remodeling the bedroom.  Just need a new curtain and some bedside lamps.

Tomorrow we are moving my father from assisted living into the Health Care Center.  (Nursing Home.)  I  guess Health Care Center sounds better.

Little Fairies at Play slowly getting page 9 finished.  Still hope to have this page done before the end of the year and start page 10 before 2017 starts.

I have Monday off as we are moving my Dad from assisted living to nursing home side.  Maybe later in the day I will get some extra stitching time.

Last week I worked on Summer Sensation.  I was supposed to be working on Faces of Faery 90 but everything from my bedroom was stacked into the spare bedroom and I could not get to it.

I now have new carpet in the bedroom, it is painted and I am just needing a bed.  Once I get my bedroom done I will work on turning the spare bedroom into my craft room.

This week I am working on Little Fairies at Play and then next week I will get back on track with Faces of Faery 90.

WIPocalypse September

 Little Fairies at Play.  I moved the scroll rods to work on the bottom of the page.  I think page 9 will be done before the end of the year as there are large blocks of color left on this page.
 Freedom.  Still working on the D.
Butterfly Fairy Night. I am struggling to see the holes on this even weave. Time for another visit to the eye doctor.

Skipping the question of the month as I can't think of a story.  Each of my projects are picked for a reason especially since most will take a long time to complete.  Some I am attracted to the bright happy colors, some the subject matter.

WIPocalypse August

 Little Fairies at Play.  I haven't taken an updated picture of this one in awhile but I do work on it every other week.
 Garden of Faith Hope and Love.  Took this on my vacation to Pigeon Forge and did not touch it.  So I worked on it this past week.
 We also went to the Smokey Mountain National Park.
 Hiked back to this waterfall.  Temperatures were in the mid 90's  plus humid all week.  We also spent a day at Dollywood and a day walking around Gatlinburg.  We had a good relaxing time which is  what vacation is all about.
Summer Sensation was worked on since last month's posting.

I have watched snippets of the Olympics.  Seems like it was always track and Bolt was running/winning.

I am also re-doing my bedroom.  It is almost empty and the painting can begin.  Then new carpet and some new furniture.

I worked on Summer Sensation this past week.  Finished another flower.

It has been so hot here I have not mowed my lawn in 3 weeks.  I have been waiting for a cool day and have not found one yet.

My daughter gave us free tickets to the Brickyard 400.  So we spent last Sunday at the Indianapolis Speedway. Tempatures were 92 but with humidity it felt like 108.  I wish all of the sweating led to weight loss.  But it didn't.

One more week of work (and lots of overtime) and then I leave on vacation.  I will pick one of my smaller projects to take with me.

WIPocalypse July

 I worked on 3 projects this month.  Freedom by Joan Elliott. Finished the E and started the D.
 Still plugging away on page 9 of Little Fairies at Play with the goal of finishing this page before the end of the year.
Closing in our my first page finish for Faces of Faery 90.

One more week then I leave on vacation.  Taking a project with me.  In the past I have taken Summer Sensation and gotten sick on both trips that I had it packed as my travel project.  So I will be leaving it at home and taking Garden of Faith Hope Love.
