2019 Intro

Hi I am Cathy and I have been participating in WIPocalypse since 2012.  I currently have 6 active WIPs in my rotation.  I tend to do larger full coverage pieces so I do not get too many finishes.

My WIPs for 2019 are listed in the WIPocalypse 2019 tab.  My goals for 2019 are to stitch on all of my projects at least twice this year.  I am participating in 1200 stitches a month with the facebook group Full Coverage Fanactics.  I participated in this stitch a long in 2018 and made alot of progress on Little Fairies at Play.

 I have added 2 pages to this picture since I moved the scroll rods.

My rotation for 2019 looks like:

January - Faces of Faery 90 during the week and Little Fairies at Play on the weekends.
February - Butterfly Fairy Night during the week and Little Fairies at Play on the weekends
March - Little Fairies at Play all month until I finish page 15.  If it finish the page before the month ends I will stitch on Bless Our Harvest until the month ends.

My goal is to finish 4 pages on Little Fairies at Play this year. I have my eye on a finish on this piece in 2020.

I do not know if I will start any new pieces.  I do have one kitted up ready to start.  I have so many beautiful patterns in my stash that I will not need to buy any.  I also have a large tub of finished pieces that need finished off.

I am working on turning a spare bedroom into my craftroom/office.  As that progresses I might be able to work on framing or finishing some of the pieces in the finished tub.

Thanks to Melissa for hosting WIPocalypse.   I always enjoy seeing what everyone is working on.

December WIPocalypse

This is the final post for 2018 WIPocalypse (I am late).  2018 was a good stitching year for me.  I stitched o all of my WIPs twice, I had one finish and 2 new starts.  December was the first time that I had stitched every day!

Here is what I stitched on in December:

 Little Fairies at Play I worked on it all month as I wanted to finish page 14 before the year ended.  I finished the page on 12/22/18.  That is 4 page finishes in 2018.  I had a goal of 1,200 stitches each month as part of the Full Coverage Stitch by the Numbers Challenge.  In January 2018 I was not sure I could make that many stitches a month.  But I set up my new rotation stitching on this project on the weekends and a different WIP during the week.  So I worked on one project for a Month before moving on to the next WIP.  I did make good progress on all of my projects this way.

 Since I finished my page on Little Fairies at Play with still days to go in December, I decided on a new start.  I had this one kitted up.  It is Bless Our Harvest from Cross Country Stitching October 2013.  I started it on 12/23/18.  Slow going on black.  I will be leaving off the words and maybe making a few other changes.  Here is what it looks like:

For 2019 I will once again be going for 1,200 stitches on Little Fairies at Play with every 3rd month working just on that project to finish the page.  So  in March if I finish off page 15 with days left I will work on the Owl project.

I have updated my 2018 Wipocalypse page with the progress pictures for all of my WIPs.

Here is a look at my Orts for 2018 and I have them in their ornament.  My jar is empty and ready of a new year of stitching.
