WIPocalypse 2012

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Wow, we're almost at the end of another month. I'll have to get on the July goals pretty soon:) Speaking of goals, I was looking at my 101 in 1001 and realized that I've completed another one- #66 which was to lose 5 pounds. I'm happy to say the scale confirmed that this morning and hopefully I'll be celebrating #67 with another 5 pound loss soon:)

Not enough stitching done for another pic yet but I do have some SBQ's to catch up on today.

6/6/07: What has been your most challenging project and why?

I think the most challenging piece I've done so far was Teresa Wentzler's Tea Scene because it was one of my first TW projects and it was my very first project with hardanger. I dove right in and it turned out beautifully with only one small snafu so I'm pretty proud of it even though I was scared to death of cutting the wrong threads at the time.

6/14/07: How do you store your WIPs and other projects that you have kitted up?

I normally store my WIPs in zippered mesh bags with all the floss sorted in a floss box and a working copy of the pattern along with all the other materials and whatever color highlighter I'm using for each particular project.

6/22/07: When you start a new work do you look for something small, do you look for another huge project or do you consider your UFOs?

Depending on my mood, I do a little of all 3 although I don't have too many UFOs so I can't pick those up too often. I am a sucker for the huge projects though so I'd have to say that they are probably my fist pick when starting something new.

Oohh goals!! I haven't done mine in ages. Will try and set some for next month. TW designs are very intricate. I have a book of hers but havent done one yet - the fractionals are putting me off. xx

Oooh I don't know the book I have is her fantasy collection and has pegasus and unicorns and castles. I think there is one with a minstrel in that I like. Tons of fractionals and backstitch - both I hate!! xx

Tea Scene is so lovely. Good for you for tackling that one!
