My first WIPocalypse update for 2013!

The apocalypse didn't happen on December 21, 2012, after all, so we still have time to finish all our WIPs.  You can sign up for the WIPocalypse on Measi's blog and then post progress photos on your blog on the Full Moon of each month.

I started 2013 with 49 WIPs and have added 26 more, since I'm starting a new one every day in January for the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge.  A picture of every WIP is on my WIPocalypse page.

I finally made some progress on Universal Unity, a Dimensions Gold Collection kit that I started in 1998.  I stitched the grass under the deer.  This kit is on eBay right now! You can buy it HERE.

I also stitched some black outlines on Stained Glass Nativity, a needlepoint kit that I started in 1980.

I did the backstitching on the leaves and flowers of Hummingbird by Teresa Wentzler.

I stitched the letters Q-Y on Singing the Blues, a Monday SAL with Linda.

I stitched the outline for Santa's 12 Days of Christmas (Day 4), a Sunday SAL with Linda and Kaye.

I stitched more green on the roof of Halloween House, a Friday SAL with Linda and 10 others.

Since the last WIPocalypse post, I finished So Many Tools and the first part of Lizzie-Kate's Boo! Club (Spooky).
So Many Tools - FINISHED!

Boo! Club (Spooky) - FINISHED!
Now you can see that I'm still trying to keep up with all my WIPs and not just starting something new everyday!

I bought all my Q-Snap huggies from Christine's Q-Snap Huggies.

Happy Stitching, everyone!

Great progress on everything!

Such beautiful, colorful projects. Universal Unity is stunning, and congratulations on your So Many Tools finish!

Linda said...

Great progress on everything Debbie.
I can't believe that Universal Unity is selling for $90. Yikes!! I love that one, but won't pay that much for the kit.


Katy said...

Everything looks great, Halloween House is still a favorite, it's great to see the progress!

I'm so far behind on my blog reading with all the hours I've been working. I had to make sure I took a moment to stop by yours and check out your pics from the past several weeks. You're making great progress on your pieces and you have so many I like. Can't wait to see them all finished. :)

Great progress on all of these, but I really really love the nativity scene... it's something about the framing with the black windows and then the colours. So many tools looks really great now it's finished too.
