Wipocalypse Jan 2017

As usual I am a date late but better late than never.  I know I should be working on all of my wips but two of the ones  I did work on became finishes.  This one is "Pretty Little Washington DC" and I loved stitching on it.
I loved the pastel colors, it is stitched on 14ct Aida from Charles Craft it is the Golden Stardust. The next wip I worked on that became a finish was "February" from  Snowflower Diaries SAL from last year.
After finishing January last year this SAL got put aside and I decided that I would start it again this year and I'm determined to finish it. I will be starting March very soon.  This is another of my SALs that put aside it is "2015-2016 Mystery SAL" from my friend Connie Gee.
So far I have completed the simple border and started filling in the gold motifs. This is a good chart to stitch while watching flosstube videos, once I start the motifs for inside the diamonds I'll really have to concentrate, they are all different. I've been selecting random DMC variegated threads.
Our topic for discussion this month is "What SALs are you participating in this year?" The two above are the only ones so far, there is another one I am thinking about starting. It is the 2017 Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler SAL.

The mystery sampler piece is very nice. How big is it going to be when finished?

I love the Pretty Little Washington design, the colours are so delicate compared to some of the brighter ones in this series.
The Connie Gee is a great project too, as are the monthly designs.

Oh yes, spring in Washington is beautiful and this piece is so lovely! Where did you get it?
I got as far as August in the SF Diaries, so I guess you could say I'm ahead this year!
Your Mystery SAL looks great so far, I love the colours you've chosen.
