WIPocalypse - February


It's been a fun month of stitching and I am on track with my plans, I have stitched 12 projects so far this year.

I'm really enjoying doing the 12 Days of Christmas, I shared my finished pieces in my FFO February post. These are my Two Turtle Doves, the first is Jardin Prive and the second Plum Street Samplers. I enjoyed stitching them although the Plum Street had three frog visits, not nice as it's stitched over one. 

Every season at Needlecraft Haven we have two challenges. Christine sets the challenges finding free online designs, one Christmas and one on any theme. The Christmas one was by Gazette 94 and was a selection of designs. The snow gnomes were so cute I couldn't resist. 

The other challenge I have made into a gift for a friend's birthday later in the year so I'll have to keep it secret until then.

Needlecraft Haven also had a Valentine's Exchange for which we could stitch anything for our secret partner. I made this Love ornament for Julie and I received a lovely ornament from Christine which I posted about in GG February 

I've finished the Just Cross Stitch 2020 Christmas Ornament Challenge for February, I'm stitching this as a SAL with Jo on Facebook. I also used it as a Theme Three finish for Katie's blog Christmas Ornie SAL.

I did finish my daughter's gift in time for her birthday, I'll be showing it in my Gifted Gorgeousness for March. 

I haven't done any more on my FLIP ITs but hopefully I'll have time this month. My March stitching will be: 

  • French Hens by Jardin Prive and Plum Street Samplers 
  • JCS ornament 
  • Easter Exchange with Needlecraft Haven 
  • Spring Challenges with Needlecraft Haven 
  • A gift for April

I hope everyone has had a good February, I cannot believe spring starts tomorrow and it's the third month of 2021 already..... stay safe, stay well.
