For the first WIP Wednesday of the new year I thought it might be a good idea to review my stitching projects in progress and remind myself where I am at. I have updates on three WIPs right now.
First up is the “Evergreen” chart by The Prairie Schooler. I completed four of these and finished them as ornaments, and since then I have stitched one more and have almost completed stitching a sixth ornament. The squirrel is nearly done, but not quite.
I enjoy stitching this one in my downtime because of its simple shapes and limited color palette. It is a great easy project to work on while watching TV or listening to a podcast.
Next up is the boutis scissors case. I wish I was farther along on this. I even brought this project along with me on a recent trip over the holidays to visit my husband’s family with every intention of sewing on the plane, but it just didn’t happen. I was so tired on our flights that I ended up falling asleep both on the way to California and home again. So, I did not make any progress on this over the holidays. However, I did buy a thimble, which you can see in the photo. So, that will save me some pain when I do get back to stitching this project.
I would like to finish the stitching the innermost border line and make a good start on the inner stitches before the next guild meeting.
Finally, here is how far I have gotten with the “12 Days of Christmas” chart by Satsuma Street. I had high hopes of finishing this by this Christmas past, but instead this project landed in UFO territory. I love stitching it, but it is more complicated than it first appears. Maybe I will get it done this year, but I’m afraid the fabric wrinkles will be difficult to get out at this point.
Three days of Christmas down and nine to go!
In other news, I am enjoying seeing other blogger’s stitching and crafty goals. I especially love the “18 in 18” lists — what a great idea. It’s nice to have time to catch up with other blogs. Thanks for reading!
