WIPocalypse April

 At the end of March I finished page 8 of Little Fairies at Play.  Five months for a page finish.  I am hoping to finish another page before the end of the year.
 So I made a start on page 9.  This is as of today.  Stitching time has been limited.  Too many other activities.
And I did work on Freedom this past month  I have almost finished this letter.  I plan on getting back into my rotation.

I did buy 5 more HAED charts during the past 2 sales.  So I need to get it in gear if I have any hope of finishing anything.

This month we were to talk about what we listen to while stitching.  Most of the time I am watching tv  Occasionally when I am home alone I do put on the radio and stitch away.  I do get more done with the radio on.

I have finished page 8 of Little Fairies at Play.  59,023 stitches complete which is 40%.  I worked on this piece exclusively for 3 weeks with the goal of finishing the page by the end of March.  Just made it.  It took me 5 months to complete this page.  I am not the fastest stitcher.

I am getting back into my rotation with this being my focus project so it will get worked on every other week.

WIPocalypse March

 Somehow this picture jumped onto my blog.We spent a day at the Auburn Cord Duesenburg Museum in Auburn IN last week.
 I worked on Summer Sensation since the last WIPocalypse.  Love the colors in this one.
And I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  I am much farther along than this but I have not taken an updated picture.  My goal is to finish this page by the end of the month  I have about 1200 stitches left.

This week we celebrated my Dad's 82nd birthday. Here  he is with my kids and they are all smiling.
 Last week I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  I moved my scroll rods so I can finish the top of page 8.  This is my focus piece and I work on it every other week.  I am getting it back out tonight after I finish this posting.
And I spent this past week working on Summer Senstation. Starting another flower. I love the colors in this one.

The weather is warming up and my tulips are poking their heads out.  I am looking forward to getting outside more.

WIPocalypse February

 This past month I worked on Little Fairies at Play.  Still working away on page8.  I am about half way done and will need to move my scroll rods after a few more blocks  I do work on this one every other week so it gets lots of attention.  I hope to get page 8 finished in under 10 months.  So far this page has not had alot of confetti.
 Garden of Faith, Hope and Love also got worked on.  Good thing this one moves quick as it doesn't come up in my rotation very often.
Butterfly Fairy Night was also worked on.  I only got to work on it for 3 days last week and none of those days was a weekend.

This month the question we are to answer is "If you have any pieces on display in your house which gets the most comments".  I only have 5 pieces framed and on display.  A small train picture in the living room, a larger train picture in my son's bedroom, a soccer picture in my daughter's bedroom and two in my bedroom - Angel of Cross Stitch by Joan Elliott and Summer by Cathy Livingston.  No one really comes in my house so I have not had any comments on any of them.

 Little Fairies at Play was worked on during this past week's rotation.  Didn't get to stitch on it on the weekends but did get a few hours in every night during the week.
Garden of Faith, Hope and Love was worked on the week before.  I just need to find more stitching time.

This week I will be working on Butterfly Fairy Night and hope to make some good progress.  Maybe I need to take a day off work and just sit and stitch.  A snow day would be nice.  lol
