Well I have been stitching away through WIPocalypse even though I keep forgetting to update for it. First up is Confetti of Hardanger by Abi Gurden. I had so many problems with part 3 that I left that and did part 4 instead. I went back to Part 3 a few days ago and managed to work out where I was going wrong and correct it. I am also trying a new technique for the eyelets where instead of a controlled pull I just give a sharp tug. This has really helped to open up the hole in the centre and I really like the look of them. There is a close up of the eyelets and then a view of the piece as a whole.
I know I only posted this a few days ago and strictly speaking it wasn't a WIP but it's cute so you can see it again...lol.
And then is a giraffe that I started about 3 1/2 years ago. I am going to try to stitch one or two lengths of thread on this each day. I really hate the fabric. It's a very stiff aida and splitting the fabric for quarter stitches requires a pneumatic drill not a needle.
I did a little bit more on the Flip It's series but have run out some of the threads or didn't buy them to start with so it will have to wait. I might move onto February whilst I wait for them.
The final project to get some love was Sunflower Fairy. I have no idea why but I just had an urge to work on her one night and in that time stitched everything except the green.
At the moment I am working on a RR and I have a Christmas Exchange to decide on too. I am thinking of doing a rotation to try and stop my butterfly tendencies which show no sign of abating at the moment. I have roughed out a plan and posted it on a separate page. Have a look if you like.
And finally....don't forget to enter the giveaway on the previous post if you would like to.
