WIPOCALYPSE JUNE 2014



I will start this post by answering the question for this month, which is “Have you ever been to a stitching gathering such as a retreat or a festival? And I am to tell you about it. Well unfortunately I have never attended a retreat or stitching festival, but I do go to a stitch night at my local needlework store. It’s on the first and third Wednesday nights.  We have lock-ins about 3 times a year where stitchers from all over the area come and we stitch, we eat, there are drawings and special discounts on charts and fabric.  Well that’s my answer for this month now for some progress pictures.  
This month "Africa" got a little attention, there is only one corner of border and the last basket to finish and then the back stitching and beading fun can begin.

I completed the 21st part of AW80S, WOW! surprisingly I am still up to date on this one.

Here is my June birthday cake, compared to the others this one is really plain, I may have to bling it up a little.

I started this project for my sister (name pillows for her 4 Persians),Lucky is the first, three more to go. I can't remember where I got this chart for the cat letters, but I think it is so cute.

I just today finished up the first part of a Facebook based Joan Elliott Mystery SAL. I can hardly wait for the next part.

I now have about two weeks to start and finish my LHN June Calendar Girl, so I best get started making those wonderful little xxs.  Thanks for stopping by.

I have the utmost respect for you keeping up with Around the World, I wish I'd managed it too!

I do recognise that cake though, I added beads to mine, the pink stitches that criss-cross the cake body.

And the JE SAL is looking good too.

Africa is gorgeous! It looks so close to a finish, but you'll be adding beads too! Good for you for keeping up with ATW. It's amazing. I love the little cat letters!

I love that cat alphabet, how cute! Africa is so pretty, love the colour pallette in it. Not long until you get a finish on her.

I am loving you Around the World. Sadly I am only on part 7 or 8 so quite a way behind. It is a lovely design though and close to a finish.

Love all your beautiful work Minnie. Excellent stitching and the colors are out of this world on "Africa".

I don't think you have caught up with me on my new blog. I was at Cross'N My Stitches and for some reason couldn't get into it. So I started a new one at http://lovenmystitches.blogspot.com/

Hope you'll come and be my follower once again.

Oh Minnie, I love Africa! Looks awesome and you don't have much more to go on that one right?
