October WIPocalypse

WIPocalypse time again! Hard to believe we're almost at the end of this year (and perhaps the end of the world)!  :P

A good amount of progress got done this month.

Austrian I by Bleu des Chines (found in JCS Jan/Feb 2010) would have been finished, but I ran out of floss. Just waiting on an order to come in Carrie's Creations and then I'll return to it.


I also put some time into Rules for Life by Kincavel Krosses. I'm liking this one more and more as I stitch it. The border is tedious, but I try to intersperse border stitching and word stitching to make it more fun.


The unfinished pieces on my UCJC list are almost all large projects, and so it feels like a big commitment to choose and work on any of those pieces. I feel like I owe time to all of the pieces I haven't touched since I started them in January. Really I should just pick one and finish it, but that likely won't happen.

I feel ansy - I don't know what I feel like stitching on. I even picked up my UFO Home Sweet Home (HAED) for an hour yesterday, but it couldn't keep my attention. Mostly I just got annoyed like I did before with the colours. (They look NOTHING like what I think they should. It does not do the original artwork justice.)

However, I did pick up SK Oriental Courage (HAED) last night and put in a few stitches. No pics for that one just yet, since there's no noticeable difference.

  2. Oh, it's a shame you ran out of floss before finishing your heart. It's lovely! I have plenty of pieces from the UCJC that I haven't touched since January, but I still love them all!
