November WIPocalypse

Hey look it's time for a WIPocalypse and I'm posting. I even posted on the last one on time. I know I know you're shocked...so am I haha. The idea for WIPocalypse was to stitch all our projects before the end of the world. I doubt I will come close to finishing mine but I like to say I'll try. It would really help if I stop starting new things but what fun would that be. I have decided to use this SAL to keep track of what I've worked on and how many days. I love looking back and seeing what progress I've made each check in. So let's see what I've been working on since October 30th...

Christmas Jar Ornaments -- 10 Days. This fun kit is from Dimensions. I fell in love with it the first time I seen it and then had a hard time finding the kit to purchase. It even sold out a few times now at 123stitch. When I finally got the kit I just had to start them. I've finished the first one and started on the 2nd jar Friday. I will post the progress on the 2nd one on Monday. Here is the first one completed...
Monthly Snapshots -- 6 Days. I've been doing these monthly. I missed July, August, September, and October because of being so busy. I decided to skip and do November. In the 6 days I was able to start and finish November...
Under the Sea SAL -- 7 Days. My other SAL that I am behind on. I did June for the 3 days of the November IHSW (International Hermit Stitch Weekend)...
Then I had to stick with it to finish up July because the mermaid was just too cute...
Here is the whole piece now...
Just 5 more sections to go with this one.

I've only had 3 no stitching days. So I'm definitely back to my stitching time of the year.

We also get fun questions to answer. This month's question is: What finishing style have you never tried but would love to do? Right now I would answer with ANY. I've only FFO (fully finished off) 2 pieces this year of the 13 I've completed the stitching on!! I got into a fight with my sewing machine and I've been scared to try it again. I HAVE to do something to finish off my beautiful projects just thrown into a tote. Soon....I mean it.

This next month is full of shopping, wrapping, and typical holiday things but I will work in stitching to save my sanity. Next post is December 31st. Wonder what I will have worked on by then?
