February WIPocalypse


I can't believe February 3rd nearly slipped by me without remembering to post my WIPocalypse update.  This will be short and sweet...  but first my answer to this months topic question.

Topic: How do you overcome that feeling that you’re in a rut with a particular project?

Well my only solution is to simply rotate to the next project in my WIPs list.  Then there's the extreme of stitcher's burnout where I can't look at anything stitching related and I have to box up everything and put it away.  That can be from a couple of months to over a year.  That's why I have a lot of long term WIPs.   I can guess that at least 3 on my sidebar list were started between 1998 and 2001.

And now for the before and after updates of  Camelot Sampler.

Before (at the end of 2014):

Your answer to the topic question and mine are nearly identical, including the long term WIP dates! LOL This is one of my favorite TW pieces, and your work on it is gorgeous!

Great work. Those TW borders certainly take some stamina but there's a great feeling when you finish one.

This is such a gorgeous piece. You are good stitching the border as you go instead of leaving it to last!

I've only ever had one stitching slump although my rate did slow down following the births of both my boys!
