I only picked 6 of my projects to be part of the WIPocolypse project - old UFO's that have been years in the works. Only worked on the one this month so far but hope to maybe get another out later in January. Other projects I worked on this month below are recent starts but I made some progress on them too. Hoping to get most of them done this month so I can do some more new starts in February!
This is Blackbird Designs' Home of the Brave. I'm not enjoying this one very much....like the pattern but having a tough time for some reason with the 40-ct stitching even though it's over-2 threads. I'll be glad to put this one behind me but I'm only about halfway.
I bought the supplies for a lovely hornbook years ago and finally got working on it this month - this is Quaker Hornbook by With My Needle. It's a shame I let this sit in my stash so long! I have a row of numbers to do under the alphabet and then can work on the little Quaker motifs which will be more fun. This is being stitched over-1 on 32-ct linen and it's giving me less trouble than Home of the Brave for some reason - go figure!
Lastly I'm still working on Lizzie Kate's Dog Rules for People that I started the end of December. This is a gift for our nephew so I'd like to get it to the framer by February. It's a quick stitch for the most part, just juggling it while I work on all the other projects.
I joined up to the 2012 Year of Smalls blog that Laura is running and looking forward to starting the February project as soon as they announce it and I get it ordered. I picked out an ornament to get started on too as I want to do one per month this year.
Being back at work after the holidays is such a drag! All I want to do is sit home and stitch! I'm loving seeing all the new starts and what everyone is working on. I did some January organizing in my sewing room this past weekend, I always seem to be needing more room so was shifting things around and sorting out a few things for a craft yard sale later this year.
