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.

 Fourth of July week saw me working on Little Fairies at Play.  Still on page 9. But I am switching back to this project tonight.
I worked on Faces of Faery 90 this past week.  I made alot of progress.  Closing in on a page finish.

 The week before last I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  Moving right along on page 9.
And this past week I worked on Freedom.  Finished the E and made a good start on the letter D.

I am back to working on Little Fairies at Play.  My goal is to finish page 9 before the end of the year.

WIPocalypse June

 This month I worked on 3 projects.  Little Fairies at Play  page 9
 Garden of Faith Hope and Love
Butterfly Fairies Night.  A little progress made on each one.

This month's question is do you stitch more in the Summer or Winter.  I was just thinking about this as I looked at my meager progress.  I do stitch more in the Winter as I am trapped more inside.  The Summer brings yardwork, trips and other outside activities.

I will be watching the Summer Olympics as much as I can and stitching while watching.  But I will not be participating in the stitch a-alongs.  Of course I might change my mind.  If I do participate it will be on the one where I go for distance on one project.
