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!

June & July WIPocalypse Update

WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi's Musings
WIPocalypse is run by Melissa over at Measi's Musings and is now in it's 6th year (amazing!).  The object of the WIPocalypse is to stitch on projects that you want to complete before the end of the world! 

At the beginning of January I picked out 17 WIPocalypse projects to work on in 2017.  The full list of my 17 projects can be found on my WIPocalypse 2017 page.

Well, here's a thing.... I am woefully late with my June & July update... oh well, I'm here now!! Better late than never!! 😌

Fabric: 28ct Jobelan "Gold Digger" - Colour Cascade Fabrics
Threads: Jodyri Designs (Wuthering Heights, Sense & Sensibility, The Olde Curiousity Shoppe, Midnight Hour)
Stitched on Day 6 and Day 7.... and managed to finish both!

Halloween Happiness (Sandra Cozzolino)

I haven't answered the questions this time around... but if you would like to see my stitching spot have a look at my last video... I did a quick video while sitting in stitching spot - complete with stitching buddies!!  Link is here

Sometime in the near future I am planning on doing a WIP parade video so I will link that here as well and you will see my oldest WIP... A couple of years ago I did find some old WIPs which technically you could say are my oldest WIPs... but they are resting!  If you want to look at that post the link is here.

So there you go.... a little bit of an update on my stitching throughout the month of June & July.  The next check in is on Sunday 27th August 2017. If you want to see what everyone else has posted over the last couple of months, drop into Measi's blog and check out the June link up & July link up pages.

Til next time, happy stitching!
Hugs xx
