 Put my orts from 2016 into an ornament and my jar is empty again.  Ready for another year of stitching.
I have begun the year stitching on Faces of Faery 90.  I am close to finishing the first page. One of my goals for 2017 was to stitch every day.  Well I only stitched for 4 days this week.  Hoping to do better this next week.  Back to stitching on Little Fairies at Play.

WIPocalypse Introduction

I have 5 projects in my rotation.  I work on a weekly rotation switching projects every Sunday.  My main focus piece is Little Fairies at Play.  I work on this one every other week.  Because of that my other projects do not get worked on very often.  Here pictures of my starting points for 2017.  You can look at my WIPocalypse 2016 page to see my progress for last year.

 Little Fairies at Play I am halfway done with page 10.  14 more pages to go.
 Butterfly Fairy Night.  This one is slow going as it is on 28ct evenweave.  I have already finished Butterfly Fairy Day.
 Faces of Faery 90.  This is another HAED.
 Summer Sensation.  I need to  rip out the blue/purple flower that is touching the blue circle.  I am off by a whole row which will throw the circle off later.
 Freedom  Still a long way to go
A Garden of Faith Hope and Love.


I had no finishes in 2016 which hasn't happened in a long time.  My plan for 2017 is to try to stitch every day.  It may not be much but I want to get a few stitches in every day.  I plan on keeping a small piece - probably Summer Sensation - by my bed.  Since I need to unstitch quite a bit of it I hope that counts as stitching.

I don't have any new starts planned for 2017 unless I actually finish something.

A little about me.  I work full time, spend time with my father at the nursing home, working on re-doing my house, losing weight and spending time with my future husband.  I just need to find more time to stitch or stitch faster.

December WIPocalypse

I managed to work on three projects this month:

 Freedom by Joan Elliott

 Little Fairies at Play page 10
Butterfly Fairies Night


This month we are to talk about our progress on the projects that were on our WIP list.  Well I did stitch on each of my projects quite regularly.  But this is the first year that I have not had any finishes. I really thought I would finish the Garden of Faith Hope and Love as it is not a large project.  But I have been working every other week on Little Fairies at Play in the hopes I can get it finished sooner rather than later.

I am going to re-look at my rotation for 2017 and see how I can re-vamp it to get more finishes.

I will not update my WIPocalypse 2016 page until December is over as I still have 2 weeks to work on projects.

I also have purchased my empty ornament to put my 2016 orts in.

Little Fairies at Play moving right along on page 10. Large blocks of color in this section are moving this quickly.

Looking forward to the winter and no yardwork for a while. Hope to get more stitching in.

Butterfly Fairy Night.  I just got into the groove on this one and it is time to switch. This is my only project on even weave and it takes a while to get used to stitching on it.

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.
