Joining the WIPocalypse

Towards the end of the 2012, my mind started going thinking of stitching projects I would like to work on. As you can see from the long and varied list below, it's a lot.  I have started several,  but only have a few stitches in as my project ADD kicked in and I moved on to another pattern.. Some are BAP's and I know I will not finish in 2013 but I would like to make significant progress on them. You also see a few by The Primitive Needle, I love Lisa's patterns and now I need to finish some!  The ones with asterisks are the ones I have started.  So I will begin and we will see how far I get with this. Hopefully, by participating in the WIPocalypse I will be motivated to get more stitching done!

If you would like to join the WIPocalypse you can find the info here.   Another great thing about the WIPocalypse is finding new blogs, getting to know new people and having someone  to cheer you on! Of course to add to my project distraction ,I have signed up for a couple of clubs. Bad Sharon! I signed up for the Ladies Prim Society with Dyeing 2 Stitch and The Prim Sister' Girls Club from Country Sampler.

This crazy list is in no particular order and I just added to it as things hit my brain:

There are some more I haven't purchased yet that I hope to eventually add to this list and they are
Christmas Garden by Blackbird Designs
Christmastide at Holly House  by  Scarlett House
Christmas at Hollyberry Farm by Stacy Nash
Summer at Hollyberry Farm by Stacy Nash

Ambitious aren't I? Well where would we be without a little or a lot of that? LOL I could go and add Frances Pool and that new one Red Cottage by Plum Street Samplers but I will try to control myself!  So much to stitch and sew little time to do it! Wish me luck my friends!

Last but not least is a finish that I did some time ago and forgot about!  This  is Purple Heart by Ewe and Eye and Friends/ I stitched it on 32 count purple iris linen with Anchor threads. This will probably be finished as an ornament. I bought an extra pattern and if anyone would like to have it, leave your name on this post and I will draw  a name on Monday, if more than one is interested. Thanks and thanks too if you have made it to the end of this post and have not laughed yourself silly at any of the aforementioned words. I am off to bed...xoxo

Edited to add: Southpaw Stitcher wins the pattern

That's a long list there, but joining the WIPocalypse does help to keep you focused, especially if you put your list up on your sidebar like I did last year! The heart is really adorable, and I love the purple linen! Please throw my name into the hat, too. Thanks for the opportunity!

I did that purple heart when it first came out, but I have yet to finish it. I don't know how it should be finished! I just don't want to choose the wrong thing...

Brigitte said...

I love your list, it's just so me. And I can fully understand you with your list - I also love BAPs and will establish a BAP list myself for this year - not for finishing the projects but for starting them, lol. Isn't it great to have a lot of WIPs on the go?

Carol said...

Wow! Looks like lots of lovely stitching awaits you this year, Sharon!! Looking forward to following along on your WIPs... And that is a very cute finish, too :)
