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.

All of your projects are nice. It is fun to see one's progress. With all you do you have some great works in progress to share. Look forward to see added stitches in 2107. Happy New Year. I am just starting my cross stitching blog (again), I had in the past and want to try again. I look forward to sharing my works in progress as well as my finishes.
