June WIPocalypse and a finish!

Happy Friday the 13th and it's a Full Moon so time for the WIPocalypse update!  The topic this time is:  "Have you ever been to a stitch gathering such as a retreat or a festival?"  No, I haven't but I would love to go!  Our Southern California Cross Stitchers Yahoo group is trying to plan one, but in the meantime, we are happy to meet at the food court in the mall or outside on the patio or at a restaurant or a member's house to sit and stitch together about once a month!

Since the last WIPocalypse update, I have had three more finishes, but two of them were new starts, so my WIPocalypse page is slowly shrinking down to only 93 WIPs now.  I finished Frank-N-Stein, Peter Polar Bear, and The Sorcerer!
The Sorcerer - FINISHED!
"The Sorcerer"
Dimensions #6689
14 ct Ivory Aida
Started 1/13/2011, Finished 6/12/2014

My plan is to get him framed together with The Sorceress before July!
The Sorceress update #1
I've also stitched more background on Alice from Resident Evil and hope to finish her by July, too!
Alice from Resident Evil update #6
I only work on this one during our stitching GTG (get-togethers).  I did the acorn tops on Very Scary Mystery Sampler, almost done with part 1.
Very Scary update #12
On Cut Thru' North Pole House, I stitched the mailbox and pole down to the water.
Cut Thru' North Pole House update #11
For my Sunday SAL with Linda and Kaye, I started stitching Santa's red sleeve and the green branches on Santa's 12 Days of Christmas by The Prairie Schooler.

Qué lindos tus trabajos! me han gustado todos.
Me llama la atención que empieces a bordar por el centro. Yo siempre lo hago por arriba y a la izquierda. Será costumbre, supongo.
