January WIPocalypse

 This month I worked on 3 of my projects Faces of Faery 90.Almost have page 1 done.
 Little Fairies at Play.  Close to finishing page 10.  I had hoped to have it done before the end of January but that is not going to happen.  Maybe I will get it finished in February.
Garden of Faith Hope and Love.  I took this one to Rochester NY earlier in the month.  I got alot done on it during my hotel stay.

This month we are to talk about the SAL's we participate in.  WIPocalypse is the only stitch along I participate in.  I am a slow stitcher and doubt I could keep up on any other stitch alongs.

 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.
