WIPocalypse - April

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 April stitching go? Here were my plans:

  • 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
I managed to stitch my Plum Street Sampler Day 4 but I'm only half way with my Jardin Prive piece.

I have stitched this month's JCS challenge however I forgot to take a photo and we're on holiday just now.

Yes that's right ... holiday ... the first time away from home in over a year. We've booked a caravan for a werk in the north east of England and so far the sun has been shining. We've had a drink at a pub, in the garden as indoor hospitality is still not allowed. No real plans, it's just nice to have a change of scene.

Back to WIPocalypse and I have finished the name tags for my friend's sister's wedding. We'll meet up once we're home.

I have not yet done any stitching on the Needlecraft Haven challenges and December Flip It is still in my to do pile ... oh well! 

Here's my May plans: 
  • 12 Days of Christmas - Five Gold Rings by Jardin Prive and Plum Street Samplers 
  • JCS ornament SAL - Ursula Michael Designs My Friendly Gnome
  • Starting a wedding gift
  • Spring Challenges with Needlecraft Haven 
  • December Flip It
This month's question is - 

Have you found yourself to be more or less productive in your stitching during the Covid-19 pandemic?

For me the Covid-19 lockdowns have coincided with a health shock, all last year I was undergoing treatments for breast cancer and broke my right humerous ball. I am very very pleased that last week I had the results of my latest scan and the results show 'no abnormality'. My arm has mended but I do not have full movement, mainly lifting upwards, reaching behind me and stretching to reach something. 

So thinking about the last 12 months my stitching did slow down but I still managed to complete many projects including finishing all the lovely flowers my blog friends sent for my Bouquet of Flowers. 


  1. The Four Days design is great, I loved that each crown was slightly different.
    2020 was not a good year for anyone but you did have a lot of extra worry, you certainly deserve that little break this week.

  2. Nice to hear you are on a holiday, enjoy!!!!
    Hats off to you for managing to complete the bouquet of flowers all between so many health problems.
    Stay safe

  3. So glad to hear you are on vacation, Claire--it must feel wonderful after this year of Covid and the health challenges you faced. Great to hear you are doing well now though and I hope your health just keeps getting better and better!
