WIPocalypse February

This was another good stitching month for me.  Here is what I worked on:

 Dandelion Fairy Kingdom I did 2,112 stitches towards my 20,000 stitch challenge. 
 Little Fairies at Play I finished page 20 which was 2,926 stitches
 Orts for the month of February
I started a new project in January from the Home for the Holidays leaflet by Sue Hillis.  I have been working on it again this last week of February.  I might get it finished up tonight as there is not much left to stitch.

Question of the Month: In honor of “Leap Year,” tell the story of a time you had to make some sort of a “leap” in stitching – taking the chance on a new style of stitching, attending a meetup or class, etc. I was in my local EGA chapter and the group did a class piece that was a sampler with lots of different techniques.  I forged ahead with it and sent it off to the class teacher for evaluation.  I did ok but it was not my cup of tea.

I did get some stash this month from my local lns.

 A small Jim Shore kit- Frog Egg. 
 Another Sue Hillis pattern Hello Autumn
 An Owl ornament that I have had my eye on.
 Two pieces of fabric.  The one on the left I am going to use for Hello Autumn
And some floss for different projects.

March will be a challenge as I will be gone for a week visiting the in-laws.  I will not be taking my two big projects with me - Dandelion Fairy Kingdom or Little Fairies at Play.  So I will have to hustle to get my stitches in them.  I will pick one of my smaller projects to take with me.
