WIPocalypse September

This month I concentrated on Little Fairies at Play so I could finish up page 17.  I had half a page to go as previous months I didn't get alot done.  I did get at least 1,200 stitches in July and August but not alot extra.  So in September it worked all month to finish page 17.  I just finished up today with a total of 3,097 stitches this month.  I did have a week of not stitching as I was on vacation.

I also had a new start the end of August.  Jingle Pals.  There are 3 ornaments from Cross Stitching & Needlework January 2009.

 And here is what it will look when done.

 And here are my Orts.  I will tamp them down and keep on stitching.

This month we are to answer the question What Finishing Techniques would we like to try.  I need to learn some new finishing techniques.  I  have a tub of finished stitching and framing gets expensive.  I did buy a frame at an antique mall and hope to try framing one myself.  Since most of my stitching are large full coverage pieces I do want to frame those.

I have been thinking how I will revamp my  rotation for 2020.  I have 2 large projects I am close to finishing and a few more kitted up.  As 2020 gets closer I will get m rotation set up.
