Late January Wipocalypse

 Actually the full moon was on Sunday night which is when you are supposed to share your wips (works in progress) report, part of the SAL my Measi.
However as you all probably already know the east coast of the US was hit with a blizzard over the weekend, well I live in one of the hardest hit areas and spent most of Sunday trying to dig our way out, well needless to say this old girl was not mentally or physically up to the task of writing a post after what a friend of mine called "cardio" (snow shoveling). Here are just a few pictures of the aftermath of that snow storm.

Now back to the Wipocalypse, click on "Measi" above for a real explanation and if you want to join in on the fun. This month being the first of the year we are asked to make an introduction and give a list of our goals for this year, so here goes.

These are the wips I have carried over from last year that I fully plan to finish stitching this year (2016).

Prairie Moon - Thine is the Trick and The Treat
Brook Nolan - Advent Animals

Joan Elliott - Sea Goddess
Silver Creek Samplers - Dare to Be Daniel
Connie Gee's - Diamond SAL

Joan Elliott - Three Kimonos
Gloria & Pat - Dollar Bill
The Primitive Hare- On Wednesday We Stitch Black
This one is a new start for this year and hopefully will be finished this year.

Ursula Micheal - Let's Love Our Family
I had another start during the storm and it stitched up so fast, it's another finish for this year.

Well that's my intro to my wips so far this year. I hope you enjoyed seeing them. Just a reminder to enter my LHN Calendar Girl Gift-Away.

Thank you for stopping by now off to make some more wonderful little xxs.

Minnie I was thinking of you. Snow shoveling is quite the work out!! Did you make a snow angel? ;)

Jaret said...

Hopefully you're doing well other than the extreme cardio workout. Love all the projects. I'm jealous that you have a finish already! It was a cute, quick stitch.

ANGIE said...

Hi Minnie, you have many lovely projects! Happy stitching!

Heather said...

Great list I hope you're on your way to melting :). I think it's definitely possible to finish all of these!

Brigitte said...

Your friend is right, shoveling snow is good to steady your blood pressure and so is good for your heart. And when I shovel snow I needn't go for my morning walks. Two weeks ago we were also having a snow storm and I had to shovel my way through the 20" that were dumped on us, lol.

All these projects are so great. With this variety you will not be bored this year.

Julie said...

A great selection to help pass the time whilst you endure the snowy weather. Not sure I would like to be doing the snow shovelling.

Sherry said...

You have a great list of goals for the year. I will look forward to watching your progress!

Katie said...

Wow that's a lot of snow! Love all your pieces and I look forward to watching them grow. Congrats on the too cute mermaid finish!!

Glad to know you've survived the storm :) We were lucky it didn't come up north. Happy stitching year!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

What a lot of snow and exercise too!
You have some great designs on your WIPocalypse list this year, lots of variety so you won't get bored!

We were in the midst of it too, but it sure was pretty!
Looks like you're going to have a busy year, everything looks great so far.
