August WIPocalypse update

It's time for the WIPocalypse SAL update!  I really do want to finish all my starts (some day), but I'm still enjoying stitching everything.  You can see current pics of all of my WIPs on my WIPocalypse page.  Check in on Measi's blog with your WIPocalypse update, too!  This month the theme is Designer - Long Dog, Project Theme - Smalls, and Focus Colors - Blue and Red.

I don't have any charts by Long Dog, but I have some smalls to work on, and some blue and red stitching, too.

Here's a brand new start and finish!  I made this bookmark for my daughter, who knows some French but wants to learn more.  "J'aime lire" means "I love to read." This is a freebie from a French blog, Les petits bonheurs de Miss T (The Simple Pleasures of Miss T).

I stitched more blue on Red Cat, a freebie from Cross-Stitchers-Club (I think the website died), using Victoria Clayton silk HDF on 28 ct antique white Jobelan.  I think the color is Aquamarine.  This is for a cat quilt by World of Charity Stitching.
Red Cat update #2
I stitched more dark red on Santa Hang-Up.  This is a SAL with Linda.
Santa Hang-Up update #4
Picnic Area by The Prairie Schooler has more border stitched.
Picnic Area update #4
I started stitching the spooky tree on Halloween House.  You can also buy this chart in PDF download HERE on Crosstitch.com, so you can have it instantly and not have to worry about postage!  Linda finished hers and Joyce and I are close behind!
Halloween House update #39
I posted a pic of my Cut Thru' Igloo progress on the Cut Thru' SAL page and the Facebook group last week but not in a blog post.  I finished the snow on the left side under the penguin and more water.  I think this will be done in a few more weeks. Then I'll start stitching on my Cut Thru' North Pole House or Pirate Ship next.
Cut Thru' Igloo update #19
Happy Happy Stitching, everyone!

Wow Debbie. The Igloo looks fantastic. I'm sure you'll be done in a few more weeks. I do hope your going to work on North Pole House with me.
Great progress on all the others. HH is getting there also. But, the backstitch border took me forever.
I need to work on Santa hang up and Picnic Area so I don't get to far behind.
Great update.

Everything looks great Debbie. Boy, I miss doing WIPacolypse stitching. I hardly get the time anymore when I'm in school. It's one of the few things I don't like about it. I especially love your HH and Cut Through Igloo. Both are darling!!! (I finally posted to my blog this week too, but I only had one little stitchy update. Sad, lol.)
