Wipocalypse Feb 2013

I did it again I almost forgot to add my post for Wipocalypse.  I had just sat down with a plate of over easy eggs, fried potatoes, bacon, toast (actually it's a bowl of oatmeal, but I like to dream) and coffee to do a little light blog hopping and it hit me. So here I am... First to answer your question, What is Wipocalypse? If you click here everything will be made crystal clear.  Well I didn't work on a lot of things this month, here's what I have done:
At last Wednesday's Stitch Night at my LNS I stitched on my "Rose Sampler" it went from this:

to this:

Not very much but every stitch counts.  Since the last Wipocalypse post where I mentioned starting a project by Joan Elliott I have stitched a week long SAL called a SWAT, an IHSW and a in-spirit Stitch & Bitch( I wasn't physically there) and it has all been on this beauty.

I know I've showed it before but I just love these little angels so here they are again.
 I also received the 10th installment of "Around the World in 80 Stitches" and it has gone from this:
to this
This is the part that I am working on now, I have lots more details to add before it's done. I love these stitches the orange is called a tied windmill stitch, the dk seagreen ones are satin stitch flowers, the light purple is a Amadeus stitch, the red and pink are called Indian herringbone  the vines with the yellow lazy daisies with the dk purple ray stitches on them is the Pekinese stitch and last but not least the center square is Ceylon stitches worked with DMC jewel effects as my metallic for this piece. You will see this one again once the details are done.
 Because most of those stitches are new to me and take lots of concentration I couldn't work on them as I watched last nights episode of the "Walking Dead" so I started another set of Angel Wings (kind of a weird combination when you think about it, but it worked).
That is it for this months Wipocalypse maybe I'll get more done by next month. 

Oh yes I mentioned in my last post that I was thinking about starting some Amish Friendship Bread, well I did.  This is now day 3 and this is what the batter looks like.
It looks just like pancake batter but when you open the bag and smell the yeasty aroma you know it's not just pancake batter. Stay tuned for the updates on the bread and if it turns out right I'll share a slice or three.  Thanks everyone for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your stay. So look around and leave a comment and I'm off to listen to an audio book and make some beautiful little xxs.

Your stitching looks wonderful. Our bags look the same. When you mentioned wanting to make Amish friendship bread I also went looking and found the instructions. The nice thing about this bread is that there are so many veriations that can be made with the base.

Beautiful stitching. I'm so envious of your progress on Papillon. I've got completely behind even on the printing the charts off! Your version is gorgeous.

Nice update on your stitching. Amish Friendship Bread! My I haven't heard about that in sometime. A group of us did this (a long long time ago) and it was so interesting to start from scratch and share it. Can't wait to see the bread in it's final form.

Hi Minnie, you have some really pretty designs on the go. It is good to have one piece that challenges with new stitches. It gives a great sense of achievement when you master them.

Your bread intrigues me, I do not think we have anything like that in the UK.

Kasey said...

Love that you made so much progress. Can't wait to see how the bread turns out!
