April WIPocalypse

Yesterday was time for another WIPocalypse post. This fun blog SAL has one main goal... for us to finish our WIPs before the end of the world. Since we all keep adding to our lists I doubt this will ever happen. I know for me it's not possible by any means haha. I like using this SAL as an excuse to keep track of what I've worked on and how many days since the last post which was March 25th. So let's see what I've been up to...

Ocean in a Bottle -- 7 Days. I had just started this one for my last post. I had only 4 days into it. Here is what it looked like...
Here it is now...

Ocean of Wisdom -- 2 Days. I was able to get this one finished up after that 2 days. Here is the before and after...

To The Beach 2013 PALs Hands on Design Pillow -- 2 Days. I was able to finish this one off too. Here is the before and after...
 

Durene Jones April Calendar Piece -- 2 Days. I started and finished this one...

You Are Loved -- 2 Days. Went from here to here...

Myrtle Beach Postcard from Erica Michaels -- 3 Days. Started this one and got to here...
Got the back panel complete other than the postage stamp but it is done on a separate piece of silk gauze and attached to this panel.

14 days with no stitching. 

We are also given a question to answer...April 29 – Talk to us about your longest-running WIP or UFO. You know I honestly don't know. I don't really keep track in a way that's easy to answer that one. I know sometimes when I look through old blog posts I say Oh wow I never finished that one. Most the time it's not something I want to finish though. Luckily there are quite a few that I have finished. Like my two HAEDs. I did see a finished piece from 2007 that I need to finish finish so that's embarrassing enough to report. See ya on May 27.

Lots of nice stitching! I definitely see the beach theme! I'd have trouble figuring out my oldest WIP/UFO too--I didn't keep track until a few years ago, but I've been stitching since the mid/late 70's so I know it's old.

Katie: You have some wonderful designs you are stitching, the Ocean In A Bottle is stunning, I love the blues.
Your April Mouse is adorable.
All your work is lovely.

Blessings

It's so interesting to see how many of us tend to stitch special motifs or pattern sizes or designers. It's always great to see the maritime motifs you love so much. And you made great progress last month.

Terri said...

Did you ever finish the heron piece? I remember hearing about it at retreat once or twice :-)
Your stitching is beautiful, as always!

Justine said...

You got a lot done considering you only stitched on half of the days in the month! I love your Ocean in a Bottle - it's so exciting now the sea creatures are starting to appear.

That is not a bad amount of stitching for how much time you actually stitched. Everything looks great!!

Carol said...

I'm really impressed with how much stitching you accomplished, Katie! I am such a slow stitcher these days even though I'm retired and have more time. You really do slow down in everything as you age--ha ha!

Cathy said...

Great work on all your Beachy projects. I adore that little sandcastle and Ocean in a Bottle is great too.
