Soooooo, I was just going about my business last Friday. It was actually both a fun and productive day. At some point in the evening I looked at my watch and saw the number "1" in the little date box. I am not kidding. This is when I realized that it was September. And on top of that, it hit me that I forgot the August WIPocalypse last week!
Better late than never, right? For those of you who aren't familiar with the WIPocalypse, please go to the Measi's Musings blog to find out about it. Today I'll update you on my stitching progress during the month of August.
I'll tell you right off that I didn't work on Rainbow Row or Joyful World November calendar piece at all. I won't even post photos of those this month. I plan to bring both of those to the front of the stitching line during September.
I continued to work on Tulip's Praise, and bought a new gadget to make stitching this one easier.
The Twisted Stitcher's video showing the how-to's of loading fabric onto the Rolaframe. To find out more about Rolaframe, visit their page on Facebook.
I started a new project last month as well.
Another start for me was "The Light Upon The Lawn" by Blackbird Designs.
fabric that I dyed using coffee and tea.
And here's big finish for me! I completed "But First Tea" by Zindagi Designs on Etsy.
Question of the month: How do you get yourself out of a stitching drought?
This is easy. I watch Flosstube videos, go to the stitching pages I joined on Facebook, and read stitching blogs! Without fail, I always get inspired by doing these things. Warning! These inspiring places can also be enabling!
By the way, both the "I love cross stitch" and the Munsters needle minders are from the SandbarMermadeShop on Etsy. Take a look! Besides needle minders, Sarah makes scissor fobs and earrings.
Well, that's about it for this month. Looking back, I really have made some good stitching progress! Please consider visiting me on Flosstube where my channel is CraftyCat Stitcher. I have also caved and joined Instagram. You can find me there at craftycat_stitcher.
