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!

August 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.

12 Days of Christmas (Plum Street Samplers)
Fabric: 28ct Jobelan "Gold Digger" - Colour Cascade Fabrics
Threads: Jodyri Designs (Wuthering Heights, Sense & Sensibility, The Olde Curiousity Shoppe, Midnight Hour)

July 2017:

August 2017:
The target for August was to finish Day 8 - well... guess what! I managed to finish it last night (that's the good thing about posting late I can show you a finished block!)

Halloween Happiness (Sandra Cozzolino)
Fabric: 28ct plain purple fabric
Threads: all DMC

July 2017:

August 2017:
Finished the creepy "L" tree in August.
Working on the creepy "H" tree... didn't quite get this finished in the month of August.. but it will be done by the end of this week!

Deer & Grapes Mystery Sampler (Jean Farish)
Fabric: 32ct Lugana "Autumn Glade" - Stitches and Spice

Continued to stitch on the deer during August...



Question of the Month: How do you get yourself out of a stitching drought?

A stitching drought (or a missing stitching bug) is something that I haven't experienced for quite some time.... luckily!  I do sometimes have the odd day when I can't decided what to stitch from my many WIPs - on those days I will look for something that is either close to a finish or something that might be related to a SAL challenge that I want to get ticked off the list.  Or if that fails... a new start also gets the stitching juices flowing again!! 😃

Next posting date: September 24, 2017
Topic for next time: Which floss (or color of floss) do you absolutely adore and want to stash constantly?

So there you go.... a little bit of an update on my stitching throughout the month of August.

If you want to see what everyone else has posted this month, drop into Measi's blog and check out the August link up page and if you're on Facebook, remember to also check out the Facebook Group for updates as well.

Thanks for dropping by... til next time, happy stitching
Lots of stitchy hugs xx

Great work, there's a lot of stitching in that deer!
Hopefully you'll finish the Halloween by Halloween, the words don't take long.
