I did manage to do well at working through a lot of my WIPs during the first half of the month and worried less about switching around during these last couple of weeks. I got two items finished, and a third nearly done:
A Quaker Seasonal: Summer
from A Gift of Stitching, May 2007
variagated floss: DMC
Peforated Paper Red & Green Tree
my own design (such as it is)
Threadworx, Mill Hill Beads
Trinkets & Trifles Perforated Shapes
and finally - the one that was meant to be my 3-D themed ornament and ALMOST got finished:
Christmas with a Twist Christmas Cracker
from Just CrossStitch 2009 Christmas Ornament Issue
40 x 59
Threadworks and Ecru DMC
As for my April plans:
For my Ornament SAL, I want to do a floral blackwork piece from The Gift of Stitching (July 2011) called Tudor Rose Bouquet, by Nancy Pederson.
The theme for April's WIPacalypse is Samples, and Blue & Orange (also Mirabilia as the designer, but I'm not working on any of those). The Theme-a-licious theme is big projects, so I am going to focus on these, because they fit both themes:
My pastel Quaker sampler (from an online freebie chart)
Elizabeth Taylor reproduction sampler
Lizzie Kate ABCs
and for the blue and old color scheme:
Celestial Sampler Kit
Finally, the Theme-alicious ornament challenge is Santa or Elves - I've not picked one yet, but I'll have it figured out by mid-month.
