WIPocalypse Update- April

Well, my attention span hasn't been great this month.  I have been jumping around from project to project and can't seem to stay focused on any of them.  I worked on these three WIPs this month.  None of it lead to a finish but maybe if I keep jumping around by the end of the year I might have them all finished. Yeah, right.  The first pic is Petit Etui - Block one is finished. The second picture is the appliqued part of the biscornu with some of the top stitched. The biggest challenge for me was attaching the applique. With that out of the way I can push forward with the rest of the stitching.  By the way, does anyone know what happened to this wonderful designer, Catherine Stickler??  She is an amazingly talented individual and I haven't seen her at Celebration in a couple of years.

This last photo has the most work done.  I finished 2 blocks and I am half way through the 3 block.  I love the colors and it has lots of springtime motifs so it has been enjoyable to work on.  I hope that by next months WIP check in it will be on the finish list.  Here's hoping.

On the kitten front, we have found homes for 2 out of 3.  Jewel and Eva went to their forever homes yesterday and poor little Rio meowed ALL night long and most of today.  I feel really bad so I have been keeping her close and trying to reassure her that everything is okay.  She is a love and I am sure we will have her placed in a forever home soon.  Thanks for stopping by and I wish all of you a Happy Passover and Happy Easter or just plain Happy Spring.  Whatever you have planned for the weekend I hope you enjoy yourselves.

Your acorn pincushion is so different. I have never seen something like that. Happy Passover to you Nataly. :)

Oh, the poor kitty--I wish I could take him, Nataly, but my husband's allergies are just too bad for us to have another cat. I sure hope he finds a home soon.

Wonderful projects you have going on--to me it looks like you accomplished a lot!!

Happy Passover to you :)

Hi Nataly!
It looks like you have made some great progress. I have been wondering too about Indigo Rose. I loved taking classes with her.
Have a wonderful weekend.
