WIPocalypse - January 2013

Well I've decided to join in the WIPocalypse fun again this year, it's hosted by Measi and is a great motivator for finishing those long abandoned projects!

For those of you who don't know me I'm Flossy, I'm 33 and I live in South Wales with my partner and two dogs Montie and Minnie

Montie <3

Minnie <3

I've been stitching since my early teens and one or two of my WIPs are that old! I also love reading sci-fi and fantasy, sewing, crochet and playing MMOs.

So I emptied my WIP drawer and photographed everything as it is now and I'm looking forward to getting stuck in, I'm sure there'll be a few new starts along the way too so I'll add those in as and when I get around to them :)

My current WIPs:

This has to be the oldest, I don't stitch anything like this anymore but it was in there so I dutifully photographed it! I think it's called Eeyore's Seasons:

Angel of Summer (L&L), another really old one

This is what I've been working on most of January, Above the Clouds which is a Teresa Wentzler design, here's where I am with it today

My latest new start, the Dessert of the Month SAL from last year by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery

This is a free pattern I got from the Anchor website, it will be a tea cosy and was meant for a Christmas present to my Nan 2 years ago *hangs head in shame*

Another old one :) I gave up on this ages ago because the metallic threads were annoying me, I've kept hold of it though so it might get finished!

A pattern I made of my two favourite pokemon :D

My Mario sampler! My brother has requested this one when it's finished so I should really get it done

The HAED SAL from last year, or maybe it was the year before? Blue Rose Fairy

The first HAED chart I ever bought, Hmpf!

The other HAED SAL I joined, around the time that things got hectic for me last year and so this was all I got done, it's an SK, Rapunzel by Jasmine Becket-Griffith

A pincushion design I started from Cross Stitcher magazine

A Beatrix Potter height chart I bought to stitch for a friend's little girl, again I don't particularly enjoy cute and cuddly anymore so it got put back in the drawer shortly after starting. I would love to get it finished though

The 2012 Chatelaine Mystery - I love working on this, the threads and colours are gorgeous!

And last but not least Owlscornu by Barbara Ana

Well as you can see I've got my work cut out for 2013, we'll see how far I get! Looking forward to catching up on everyone's January WIPocalypse posts :)

Flossy x
