WIPocalypse - March

 


WIPocalypse is all about stitching we want to do before the End of the World. Measi hosts this great idea at Measi's Musings. As well as sharing our stitching Measi asks month there is a question too, you'll find my answer later on in my post.

So how did my March stitching go? Here were my plans: 

  • French Hens by Jardin Prive and Plum Street Samplers 
  • JCS ornament 
  • Easter Exchange with Needlecraft Haven 
  • Spring Challenges with Needlecraft Haven 
  • A gift for Apri
I have stitched both my French Hens pieces, they're not yet finished. I am trying to finish them each month in time for FFO the following month, so far so good. 



I have stitched my JCS ornament for March, it's Snoelle by Linda Jeanne Jenkins. I'll be finishing this tomorrow so I can post up on the Facebook SAL before the month end. This photo was taken straight from finishing so it's not ironed.


My Easter Exchange for Needlecraft Haven has been completed and is with my partner ready for opening day next Sunday. I have not yet started any of the spring challenges for Needlecraft Haven's Seasonal Challenge but I know what I will be making them into so I'll be starting them soon.

I have finished the gift for April, it's wrapped and waiting to be given but as that will not be until nearer the end of the month I will not be able to share for a while.

This month's question is: What is your process for working on WIPs? Are you a one-at-a-time stitcher, a rotation stitcher, or something else?

I'm a one at a time stitcher. I like to complete a piece before moving on to the next, that said these days I tend to stitch small items. In the past I have stitched large pieces and have then used a rotation so all my projects were completed.

For me my stitching has to have a purpose, I need to know why I am stitching it and kit up the finishing items when I sort my fabric and threads. This is partly so my lovely Hubby doesn't have to get my stash boxes out from under the stairs too often. Imdomsee many many charts I'd like to stitch, or other people's stitching that I am tempted to do but I find that once I have sorted my planned stitching I don't actually have time to add in any more. I do however have a few items stitched not finished .... but that is another story! 

All told I'm very pleased with my March stitching. I keep a record of my finishes on a separate page, you'll find the tab at the top of my blog. I'm amazed that I have already stitched 18 items this year so far, and even more amazed that most of them are fully finished.

My April plans are: 
  • 12 Days of Christmas - Calling Birds by Jardin Prive and Plum Street Samplers 
  • JCS ornament SAL - Rejoicing Reindeer by Blue Ribbon Designs
  • Rainbow name tags for a friend
  • Spring Challenges with Needlecraft Haven 
  • December Flip It

  3. Lovely work meeting your goals this month. I also like having a plan and fixing my rotation at the start of the year to focus on the things I really want to stitch. I'm still in BAP territory for a few more years LOL
