February Stitchery Accomplishments and Plans

Today is the Themalicious End of Month Wrap Up.  I'd just posted my stitchery progress a couple days ago, and can't see repeating it again today - no further progress on either of the two WIPs since then, but I did do one additional ornament - this one for the Ornament SAL:

Got Luck?
Plum Street Samplers 
tan 28ct linen
DMC and Gentle Art threads

This was a lot of fun to stitch, and fast, too. Yesterday was full of doctor's appointments and meetings, and this was just right to tuck into my bad and take along while I sat in various waiting rooms.

My plans for March are many - let's see how far I get, eh?

- The Themalicious Challenge for Mar is to try to work on a different WIP everyday!  I don't know that I can manage every day, but I am going to pull out my many WIPs and take a look at  them, figure out which I want to move forward on right now, and put at least a little time into the ones I select.

- the WIPocalypse themes are these: 
1) Designer: Chatelaine
2) Style: Springtime
3) Colors: Yellow & Green
I'm sure that, since I'll be working on numerous WIPs, at least a couple will qualify!

 - The Themalicious Ornament mini-challenge is to create a 3-D ornament - I've not picked a design yet, but I'm thinking either a Christmas themed biscornu or humbug.

- I will also be making an ornament for the Ornament SAL that will have something to do with spring, Ostara, Easter... a rabbit of some sort, maybe?

 New Starts
- I've agreed to donate two needlework pieces to our UU congregation's annual fundraising auction.  I want to look over finished but not yet framed projects I have to see if any of those might be a good fit, before selecting new starts.  The auction is in April, so I need to get my entries done.

- I also plan to donate a piece on behalf of my Druid Grove, for a festival  that is happening that same weekend, for their auction. We'll be attending there, so we'll have to miss the UU auction, which is a big shame, but I guess that's the way it goes sometimes.  I'm also going to take my inventory before deciding what to offer for this.

I'll post my WIPs and items  that are done being stitched, but need final completion soon.

Non Stitching Projects
- to get some of  those finished bits of stitchery actually completely done.  I don't actually enjoy  this part so much, but it's got to be done if I want to display my work.

- I signed up for an intro drop-spindle spinning class this month at the Accokeek Foundation.  I'm very excited to try my hand at this!

So, that's what's going to keep me craft in March - how about you?
