WIPocalypse Intro 2018

Hi I am Cathy from Ft Wayne IN.  I have been doing counted cross stitch since the late 1980's. I have been participating in WIPocalypse since 2012.  I am attracted to full coverage pieces.  I am not the fastest stitcher but do keep plugging.  I do like finishes so I try to keep some smaller pieces in my WIP pile.  I am currently not doing a rotation.

The projects I will be working on for 2018 are listed on the WIPocalypse 2018 tab. 

My goals for 2018 are to:

1) Finish Summer Sensation.  I am really close on this one.  A few more leaves to stitch and alot of back stitching and it will be done.  I do stitch on this one almost every night for at least an hour.

2) I have joined the Full Coverage Facebook group and their challenge of doing 1200 stitches a month.  I am doing this on Little Fairies at Play.  I have never counted my daily stitches before.  Progress always looks slim.  I figured I needed 40 stitches a day which didn't seem bad as long as I stitch on this one every day.  Well life happens and I do not get to it every day.  But I have had some long stitching sessions on it this year and I am halfway to 1200 stitches for the month of January.  I hope to keep this up all year so I can see some real progress on this one.

3)While digging thru my stash I found some cute small owls to stitch.  I am going to try stitching one for each family group and make them into ornaments for Christmas 2018.

4) Once Summer Sensation is done I will focus on Faces of Faery 90 and hope to get that one completed or close to done by the end of the year.

Good luck with your goals. I like your idea of mixing in the owl ornies with the bigger projects.
