Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

March WIPocalypse

Another full moon come and gone and that means another update on my WIPocalypse progress.

I’m happy to report that not only do I have one finish (Liberty Lane) I have kept faithfully to projects on the WIP list (with a very short detour due to an unexpected Travelling Pattern finish)!  I must admit that I continue to marvel at my ability to stay on task each month 😉

In addition to hours on Ink Circles Masquerade and TW’s Dragon Ride, I have spent time on Sea to Shining Sea…

Apologies for the more-than-usual craptastic photo on this.  I finished the words, bottom border, white “box” border and started on the far right house.

 

And today I finished off another ten hours on Rosemarkie (again, an unusually craptastic picture)

This is using McAulvey Manor from Needle Necessities (not sure what the Threadworx conversion is) on cream Belfast.

For this stint I did all the backstitching in the upper left quadrant there, add the first box (lower center) and started filling in the North “arm.”  I will finish off the first page of the four page chart next time – and it’s definitely the largest of the four.  Woot!

Next I’m returning to the Mill Hill piece and I’ve got my eye on a third WIPocalypse finish for the year!

In other news… my kitchen, dining area, pantry, laundry and both bathrooms now have gorgeous porcelain tile installed.  In fact, we liked it so much we’ve decided to do the same in the remainder of the house.  That will start again tomorrow, so another hectic week here.

Last weekend, we rehung most of my stitching and there’s a suspiciously large space in the living room that we’ve earmarked for Spring Queen.  I suspect she’ll be added to the rotation shortly as that space continues to remind me of her less-than-finished state!

    Nice progress on your pieces. The colour for Rosemarkie is beautiful.

  4. I can’t wait to see the home improvement photos. I was telling DH about your tile. He wants to see, too. 🙂

    Yay for the WIP progresses and staying on track! It’s a good feeling to make progress on things, isn’t it. I can really see the beauty in Rosemarkie!

  5. Your pieces look wonderful, but Rosemarkie? That’s going to be a showstopper for sure.
