I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

WIPocalypse 2019 - Kick Off Post

WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi's Musings
The object of the WIPocalypse is to stitch on projects that you want to complete before the end of the world, or the end of the year - whichever might come first! WIPocalypse is run by Melissa over at Measi's Musings and is now in it's 8th year.  

For 2019 I am going to try and work on 19 projects (ie 19 in 2019!).  The full list of my projects can be found on my WIPocalypse 2019 page.

Okay.... yes I know I failed dismally last year with posting about my chosen 18 in 18, and I can't make promises about this year but I will try harder to post regularly on my chosen 19 in 19!

So what have I chosen this year?  There are a couple of favourites still in the list because they didn't get finished last year, but there are also some newbies in the list.  I have tried to be a bit more strategic in my thinking this year and have picked projects that have been around a long time but are also very close to being finished.  I have also picked a couple of bigger projects in the hope that I will get some progress on them during the year and they then might also become close to being finished!

So here we go - welcome to my "19 in 19" 😃

 12 Days of Christmas - Little House Needleworks

12 Days of Christmas - Maria Diaz

Quaker a Halloween - Jardin Prive

Pink Sparrow Sampler - With Thy Needle & Thread

Orchid (Flower Pixie Fairy) - Nora Corbett

Peace on Earth - Cottage Garden Samplings

Deer & Grapes Mystery Sampler - Jean Farish

Snow Love (Snow Story) - Lizzie Kate

Pumpkins 4 Sale - Little House Needleworks

Henry VIII - Cloudsfactory

Dog Park - Satsuma Street

Autumn Bird - Satsuma Street

Shimmering Mermaid - Mirabilia

Spring Bouquet - Margaret Sherry

Tulip Time - Just Nan

Mini Mandala II "C" - Chatelaine

Eightsome Reel - Papillon Creations

Peacock Lady - Joan Elliott

Coffee Saves Lives - Heartstring Samplery

My goal for 2019 is to try and get at least 50% of these finished (ie 8 or 9 out of 19 WIP's finished).  A stretch goal would be to get either the Mira or the Nora Corbett design also finished in 2019!

Wish me luck.... I will need buckets of it!! 😊

Til next time, happy stitching

Hugs xx

Those are some great choices! Good luck with your goal!

Some great choices this year - I like the idea of progress on 19 in 19 ... I might have to add that to mine too, as if I don't already have too much on with aims for 19 new starts and 19 finishes :P

Great variety of projects! They are all gorgeous. Half is a good goal, it's the same with Melanie's YOW on FB. Good luck!

Julie said...

Nice choices, lovely to see Deer and Grapes in there, that's lovely, I've missed seeing that one grow.

Bethan said...

Lots of lovely pieces - I think my favourite is the Eightsome Reel. I look forward to cheering you along x

Great choices! There are certainly some big projects on this year's list but also quite a few close to completion. I look forward to following your progress.
