June WIPocalypse update and a finish!

It's another full moon (did you see the super moon?) and time for the WIPocalypse SAL update!  The focus colors this month are black and green. You can see current pics of all my WIPs on my WIPocalypse page.

I finished Quaker Moon during the GTG (get-together) on Saturday with seven women in the SoCal Cross Stitchers Yahoo group.  We stitched at the food court in the mall for almost 8 hours!
Quaker Moon - FINISHED!
"Quaker Moon"
Bent Creek
Started 1/28/2013, Finished 6/22/2013

I'll pass this chart onto another stitcher (worldwide) and hopefully the winner will give it away when she's finished, too!  Just mention in the comment if you're interested.  I'll draw a name on Sunday, June 30.

I started the next part (7 of 12) of Boo! Club by Lizzie Kate by stitching the word Pumpkin in green.
Boo! Club (Pumpkin)
I stitched the black jaw line on the Day of the Dead skull from the Twisted Stitches book.
Day of the Dead update #7
I stitched the black letter P and some of the border on Picnic Area by The Prairie Schooler.
Picnic Area update #3
I finally started stitching again on Santa Hang-Up, which I started for the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge and haven't touched it since the first day.  I'm stitching on sparkly 20 ct Valerie fabric, 2 over 2, so the X's are pretty big (10 ct size).  This is an every other weekend SAL with Linda.
Santa Hang-Up update #1
Remember to check in on Measi's blog with a link to your WIPocalypse update, too!  Next month's theme is Designer - Glendon Place, Project Theme - Animals, and Focus Colors - Red and Yellow.  I'll try to do some stitching in those categories, too!

Love your finish Debbie! It was great stitching with you on Saturday :) Maybe we should reserve a room at a library or something so we can all hear each other while we stitch *lol*

That is such a good use of a food court at a mall! Love your finish and natch I want to be counted in for the Travelling Pattern. It is so cute!

Great stitching, wish I could have joined you all, had so much fun last month. Hopefully I'll make the July, if not August for sure!! I've not stitched a stitch since the end of May.

Congrats on your finish! I've been reading your back posts and enjoy seeing all your finished projects. It's inspired me to turn some UFO's into WIP's. It must be lovely to get together with other stitchers. I'm convinced I'm the only cross stitcher left in Northern Illinois!

I would love to stitch Quaker Moon and pass it along.

Miamina said...

Wow! I love the finish, Quaker Moon is adorable! Well done :)

Great progress on the rest of your designs, they are really coming along!

What a lovely thought to pass the chart on, please don't include me as whilst I love it, I have so much to stitch I wouldn't get around to it for a while!

It sounds like you had a really fun meet up :)

Karen said...

Oh my have you ever been busy! I would love to have a chance to do the Bent Creek Quaker Moon, so please enter my name in the draw. It's a really cute design.

I can't believe you stitched in the food court for 8 hours! That's awesome! :)

Marcy said...
