Wipocalypse 2014 get your needles started and let's go.....

This year instead of having monthly stitching themes Measi is having monthly topics to go along with stitchy up-dates.  You can check out my wipocalypse tab for the topics or use the button on my side menu, it will take you directly to Measi's info and sign-up page.


January 16 - Topic: Introduce yourself, your projects, and any goals you have for the year!

My name is Jan.  As of October 2013 I am an unemployed (still job hunting) electronics stockroom clerk and homeless.  I'm 56 years old and currently living under my parent's roof.  I'm single (aka spinster) and have no kids or pets.  My projects, it seems, have been forever listed on the side menu of my blog page. 

My goal for the year would be to finish at least three projects that have a significant amount done already; That being:

1) Camelot Sampler - by Teresa Wentzler (TWDesignworks)
2) The Twelve Days of Christmas - by Teresa Wentzler (TWDesignworks)
3) Musical Bell Pull - by Donna Vermillion Giampa (Vermillion Stitchery)

The problem I'm having with several WiPs is that my tastes have changed over the years and I don't know if I will ever finish them.  I'm hoping that if I do a rotational system I can get 'em done.  If by some miracle I finish all three before the end of the year I will pick three more to continue on with.

And without further a-do here is what all three projects looked like from the last time I touched them.

I will be starting my stitching rotation with Musical Bell Pull.  Bravo!!!  If you made it all the way to the end of this post.  For it has to be the longest one I've ever made. [LOL]

Happy Stitching and thanks for stopping by........

One last note:  I've added "A Vikings World" chart to my For Sale page.

Wishing you all the best in reaching your goals this year. You have done so much on them so far it would be a shame not to see them completed. I

Take care and happy stitching!!!!

Wow, when I looked at your progress photos for Camelot, I didn't realize how much you had stitched. Good luck on reaching your goals. Maybe we'll both finish a TWDesignworks this year =D

Rachel said...

Your TW pieces are STUNNING - looking forward to seeing more!

I love the two TW designs, you have stitched so much of Camelot, I really hope you finish that one this year, I'll be cheering you on!
I have that design and the twelve days too.
