WIPocalypse February

This month's question is what do you listen/watch when stitching.  I have just discovered Flosstube.  I tend to watch that when my husband is at work.  Otherwise whatever he is watching.  The less interested in it the more stitching I get done.

We spent a week in Florida visiting my in-laws.  So I did not stitch every day this month.  My weekly project was Butterfly Night which is stitched on evenweave.  I struggle to stitch on evenweave.  My stitches are a mess so I hate to work on this project.  I worked on filling in the moon.  Glad to put this one away and switch to another project a few days early.

On the weekends I worked on Little Fairies at Play and completed 2,787 stitches.  I almost have page 15 done and should finish it up in March.  To make sure I get my page finished and at least 1,200 stitches in I will work on this project on weekends and during the week until page 15 is done and 1,200 stitches completed.

Bless our Harvest will be back out for the few remaining days of February and as soon as I have page 15 and 1,200 stitches done on Little Fairies at Play I will work on it for the rest of the month.

I did manage to read 4 books this month (3 while on vacation in Florida).

Looking forward to some warmer weather for March.

January WIPocalypse

January was an excellent stitching month.  I had 29 days of stitching.  I stitched for a total of 91 hours.  I had 3 separate days off in January so that added to my stitching time.  I will not do as good in February as we will be gone to visit my inlaws in Florida for a week.

 Faces of Faery 90 was my project for the month of January.  I stitched on her during the week.  I almost have page 2 finished.  Need to fill in the confetti stitches and I will be on to page 3.
 Little Fairies at Play is my weekend project.  My goal is 1,200 stitches a month with the aim of finishing a page every three months.  So I really have to do more than 1,200 stitches a month for a page finish.  In January I did 3,347 stitches.  I am at the half way point of page 15.
And here are my Orts for January.

 The question for this month is what SAL are you participating in for 2019.  I am in the Full Coverage Facebook group 1,200 stitches a month and WIPocalypse.  Both motivate me to make progress on my projects.
