Wipocalypse February 2017

Here we meet again, it is time for my Wipocalypse Report for this balmy month of February. Yes, I say balmy because we have had no record-able snowfall this month and usually at least one week in February looks like this.
Instead this is what I see. Sunshine and blue sky, by no means am I complaining but I am so ready for SUMMER!
Okay, I know you all didn't come for a weather report so I'll get on with the stitchy-stuff.   This  month our Wipocalypse question is "What is your favorite stitch other than standard cross stitch?" Well I have two and they are Algerian Eye and Smyrna Stitch and for the bonus points here are some how-to diagrams

Now I will show you what I have worked on this month first I started on the March design for the Snowflower Diaries "Joyful World SAL" from 2016.  I was trying to get ahead of the designs this year, maybe I can get them finished.

Next I worked on the Cloudsfactory "Game of Thrones Houses & Banners", eventually it will be given to my daughter. I have only to finish the last section and then it's ready to be framed.
Last but not least, the project that has consumed me is the Linen & Threads "Mystery Sampler".
I started my version of this design after the actual SAL start date and have been trying to get caught up, I'm not sure if I'll make it before the March band comes out, I am still working on January. February's bands are shorter so once I get them started they should go quickly. Well that is the end of my report, going to make some wonderful little xxs. Thanks for stopping by!
