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!

Posting dates and Topics for 2018 - as I post each month I will add the post link to the relevant date below

7 January: Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!

27 January: What SAL’s are you participating in this year? and If you are participating in the Olympic Stitching Challenge, what challenge are you accepting?  What are your goals?

28 February: Gadgets!  Show us your favourite stitching gadgets!  Plus how did you do with Olympic Stitching, and what goals did you achieve? – Note:  This post is postponed to Tuesday include any stitching through the end of the Olympics.

25 March: What newer designers and product creators (fabric or floss dyeing, etc) out there have you discovered and recommend?

29 April: Talk to us about your longest-running WIP or UFO.

29 July: Half-year recap:  How are you doing with your goals so far this year?

26 August: Which is more satisfying to you and why – the process of stitching a piece, or the finish?

30 September: How do you keep your stitching stash organized?

28 October: Do you prefer to stitch on a rotation or one project at a time?

25 November: What new stitches or techniques did you learn this year?

30 December: Recap your accomplishments for the year! (Your finishes, your final before/after photos, etc).

Other options for this year's WIPocalypse:

Year of WIPs (aka “Stitch from Stash”): Year of WIPs challenge.. This is completely optional but is a good opportunity for me to save some money and get some finishes done!

Stitching Olympics Challenge
The Stitching Olympics will again be held during the 2018 Winter Olympics.  This is, of course, an optional challenge.  There are three challenges you can choose from (or mix up):

Rotation Relay: rotate through as many projects as you can during the Olympics (for those who like to work on a bunch of different pieces)

Endurance Race: stick to ONE piece for the Olympics, and see how far you can push that one piece toward finishing (for those one at a time stitchers, or anyone else who wants to do some serious focusing on a particular piece)

Celebrate the Nations: stitch only in the colors of the Olympic rings on your WIP pieces, OR… your nation’s flag, OR… on some sort of piece that is reflective of where you live

Remember to also check out the Facebook Group for updates as well.
