Since the last WIPocalypse post, I've had 3 more finishes; the Best Witches Halloween ornament, the first Advent Animals ornament, Katie Kitty, and another Santa!
On the 5th day of Christmas, Santa brought to me.... Five Golden Rings!

I made good progress on Fall Welcome, my Saturday SAL with Linda.
|Fall Welcome update #9|
I've also been stitching on Alice from Resident Evil. Does she look like Milla Jovovich yet?
|Alice from Resident Evil update #3|
This is how she will look when she is done:

I also stitched more on The Sorcerer's cloak. When I finish him, I'll stitch The Sorceress next! These are gifts for my best friend who loves wizards and castles and dragons!

My idea is to get them framed together, and my framer friend suggested that I find some charms so she could include them in separate cut-out parts of the mat, so I bought these pewter pendants on eBay:
The topic for this month is, "How do you keep your stash organized?" I don't use bobbins and keep the floss skeins in small 3"x4" ziploc baggies in these plastic photo cases:
I keep all my WIPs in gallon size Ziploc bags with the fabric, chart, and floss for each project. I put all my Ultimate Crazy January Challenge starts for 2012 in this sewing basket, and I have another sewing basket full of starts from the UCJC 2013. The new starts from UCJC 2014 are just in a pile on top of my Rubbermaid tote where I keep all my future kits and charts.
Then I have about 6 fabric tote bags with several WIPs in each one on Q-Snaps, so I can easily grab a tote bag when I meet my friends to stitch or to take in the car if I leave home. I always say, you never know if there will be an earthquake and the ground will crack open and I won't be able to get home for awhile, so at least I'll have something to stitch!
I bought a pink plastic drawer cart like this one to store my cross stitch fabric, but it's still empty and all the fabric is in 2 cardboard boxes instead.
