This year I am once again participating in the WIPocalypse, a cross stitch project rotation SAL organized by Melissa at her blog, Measi's Musings. I found this SAL so helpful last year for staying on course with all of my cross stitch projects that I knew I wanted to join in the fun again.
I have managed to get some stitching in however, and have even done a bit of project rotation. A bit. You'll see.
Some stitches were placed into a new project, Country Cottage Needleworks' Forest Snowfall.
Next, I got started on the Frosty Forest series, also by Country Cottage Needleworks. So cute.
I made some progress on Christmas Sentiments by Stoney Creek.
Oh, now I see a place on the left tree that I missed. I am still enjoying stitching this chart.
And finally, I started on my Linen and Thread Mystery Sampler (2017).
That's a pretty good start, but that January section is big. I'm sticking with it though and am very pleased with myself for my color selection.
The needle minders are new to my collection and are from SewMuch2Luv on Etsy. Aren't they adorable?
And that is all that I've accomplished this month. You know, I should be very happy with what I've done considering all of my complaining about my reduced stitching time!
Question of the month: What SALs are you participating in this year? And if you are participating in the Olympic stitching challenge (see Measi's Musings January Check-In for info.), what challenge are you accepting? What are your goals?The WIPocalypse is the only SAL I'll be participating in this year. I've decided that I'm not a traditional SAL kind of stitcher. I stitch very slowly and will never be able to keep up with anyone else. I do like to hear about SALs though because I have found some very cute things to put on my stitching wish list. But anything that has an ending date is not for me. I do like the idea of the Olympic challenge however, but haven't decided which I'd like to do. I will be watching the Olympics and I will be stitching, so I'll probably choose one of them (most likely the Rotation Relay) and see what happens.
As always, thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope to get more stitching in before I check in at the end of February and I even think I may have a new start before then! Do I need that? Ha ha ha! No, but I want to stitch all the things!
