August WIPocalypse

It's time for the August WIPocalypse check in. I looked back and realized I missed the July one. So I'll cover what I've worked on since my last check in which is the June WIPocalypse post. I've been very busy in that time span but let's see what I've worked on...

Year of Whimsy Leaflet -- 6 Days Worth of Work -- So far I've stuck with my goal of finishing them in the month they are due. Here is June and July all finished up...
 
I started the August Whimsy yesterday. Here is my 1st day of progress...
Elshire Family Crest -- 19 Days of Work -- The last check in I told my readers about doing a family crest for my Grandpa. It was a horrible pattern. I stopped after 1 day of work. I found a fantastic lady to do a new chart and it's PERFECT. I'm trying to focus on this one so I can get it finished and to my Grandpa. It's a big piece like a HAED with 20 pages. Here is where I am right now with it...
While working on it I need little breaks. So I picked up some DUCJC pieces too.

Tour Postcard from Summer House Stitche Workes -- 2 Days of Work and was able to finish it up...
Beach Postcard from Summer House Stitche Workes -- 1 Day of Work to finish up...
Halloween Mini's -- 2 Days to finish up the Pumpkin Face...
Christmas Treasures -- 2 Days put into the 2nd one of the 4...
Spring Bell Pull -- 3 Days of Work during the IHSW I was here on the R block last check in...
Now I got to here...
So I've been working on a little bit of this and that. 26 Days of no stitching in there too. So I can tell I'm still busy with camping trips and fun things. There is also a question with the check in's August – Topic:  Have you ever read any fictional books that involve embroidery?  If so, give us some recommendations? No I have not. I've heard there are some out there. I used to LOVE reading but that was before I found cross stitching. Now I spend my time crossing X's instead. Thanks for checking out what I've been up to. See ya in September!

  2. Twenty-six days of no stitching? Hard to believe with all the show n tell you have, plus finishes!! I'm envious. I think I have a fiction paperback on stitching. You're welcome to it, if you'd like.

  3. You've stitched lots even if you haven't been stitching every day! I love the Pumpkin Face. Can't believe we're only a couple of months away from Halloween.
