I haven't forgotten...

No I haven't forgotten about you blog readers, life sometimes gets busy and something has to be pushed back. I have a lot to share since my last post. In May I participated in a SAL from Facebook called "Stitch Maynia", when originally stated in 2015 you were to start 15 new charts in the first 15 days of the month. Now the SAL has evolved to starting as many new starts as your want for as many days as you want, some start 15, some 18 for 2018, some even start 31 for the entire month of May.  I counted and I had twenty something wips already in my wip bag so I didn't go too crazy. I only started 8 for the first eight days of May and I went back and worked on some of them for the rest of the month. I even finished a few! Here they are:
M is for Mermaid

All Souls Verlanen

Stitch Always

Stitch Witch

Halloween Cat

Count Your Blessings

My Heart Belongs to the Sea

Dorothy's Discivery
I loved stitching on each one of these so much it was hard to move to the next one the next day. As I said after these eight days I went back and worked on them again I finished five of the eight:

May was a busy month, I also FFOed some small items:
I even made a few grime guards:

June has gotten off to a good start I worked on all of my Maynia starts and even started another chart:

I even tried my hand at another project bag.  Well I'll be back soon with an update from the upcoming Stitch Con Retreat. xxs!

Wipocalypse April 2018

Again better late than never.  For some strange reason my calendar is off or maybe I'm the one that is off, but anyway here are my wips.
Vintage Cat

This is the only active wip that I have and still am working on since my last Wipocalypse update. I have not touched anything in my wip bag but I have been stitching.  This is Vintage Cat by Alice Alan from Etsy. 

Michelle Obama

As if you needed to be told who this is... I started this chart thinking that it would be another for my wip bag but it was so amazing watching the image come to life I just couldn't put in it down so instead of being a wip it became a finish. I got this design from 

He Is Risen

This was another piece that I started and couldn't put down so it became a finish too. It is He Is Risen from Little House Needleworks.

The Wipocalypse question for this month was "What do you listen to while stitching?"  Well most of the time I am listening to the TV and when there are new flosstube videos I listen to them.  Well that's about all for this post see you soon and happy stitching.
