WIPocalypse and Theme-a-licious Updates

So this is going to be pretty easy….

WIPocalypse was a big fat ZERO for this full moon.  That’s right, I didn’t touch a single item on my original list.


Theme-a-licious was a bit more productive.  Here was the Olympic plan:

Flying Needles (Knitting)

Bronze:  Finish Matthias Scarf  – Yes!
Silver: Finish Multnomah Shawl – Yes!
Gold: Finish K’s socks  – Progressed to about 8″ on the first sock…

Flashing Needles (Stitching)

Bronze: Finish one Retreat Project  – Yup!
Silver: Caught up on Lizzie*Kate Halloween Mystery  – Finished part 1 and started 2.
Gold: Finish three items from WIPocalypse List – HA!

Speedy Needles (Quilting)

Bronze: Cut/Assemble background for first Sweetheart House block – Shouldn’t left this at “cut”
Silver:  Finish first Sweetheart block (appliqué) – ummm…no
Gold: Bind Witchie Quilt – HA!  Oh sometimes I crack myself up…

Based on the above, I’ve earned two Bronze and one Silver (see previous post for details).

  • Bronze: Finish Matthias Scarf
  • Silver: Finish Multnomah Shawl
  • Bronze: Finish one Retreat project (I finished two, but I’m only counting for one medal ;))

According to the last Olympics, I can proudly fly the Belgium Flag with these results 🙂

September plans…

September Smalls

We all love gadgets, and none better than the teensy tools and holders we make ourselves. Let’s stitch some smalls–needlebooks, fobs, biscornus, scissors keeps, pincushions–or knit some teensy things–amigurumi, jewelry, sachets….

Woot!  I got this one covered!  The next retreat project I’m working on is a scissor fob and pincushion and I will pull out a couple of the smaller items from the WIPocalypse list 🙂  And if I am very ambitious, I’ll get the L*K Mystery Sampler done.  Here’s where I’m at…

Totally doable, right??

  1. I’m sorry you didn’t get anything done for the full moon, but it sounds like you’ve been busy with your theme-a-licious, and working on smalls for September will be good!
