WIPocalypse March Update 2012


I have two finishes for this WIP update.  I finished Bent Creek's Spring Snapperland.  It is stitched on 32ct Waterlily with suggested WDW and GAST floss.  It is now at the framers and I can't wait to put it on display. 


The next finish is Grandma's Sewing Roll by Stitching Treasures.  It is from a class I took last year at Celebration of Needlework.  I vowed to have it finished before I signed up for any more classes.  This year Celebration is at the end of April so that gives me plenty of time to assemble this sweet project.  Because the project was kitted I am not sure of the fabric but the threads are Crescent Colours and DMC. Anyone going to Celebrations??  Taking any classes??




Ends for the sewing roll

I am currently finishing up a model and working on an exchange piece.  I can't show you the exchange piece but I can tell you it is a Blackbird Design.  I have also been working on counting pins.  I hope to have them out to the winners soon.  I hope you have a wonderful afternoon, I am off to look at everyones WIP update.
Happy Stitching!

Bent Creek is such a fun piece to look at.

Two lovely finishes.

Very pretty finishes! I like how some fabrics give the stitching more "pop" like in the Bent Creek design. Those daisies seem to pop off the fabric.

Congrats on your finishes! They both look great.

I've never been to Celebration, although I've always wanted to go. The timing never seems quite right though. One of these days, I'm gonna make it! I'm glad you got your project finished in time to make it this year.
