June WIPocalypse check in

Time once again for a WIPocalypse post. Haven't heard of the WIPocalypse? Click on the colorful dragon over on my sidebar to see what you've been missing. I actually have 3 projects to show off this time. Sorry in advance for any spacing issues, I'm posting from the iPad today and sometimes it has opinions on how things should be spaced. They sometimes agree with mine. Anyway, the fish of Fish City are steadily multiplying...

Watergarden got a little more fence and part of a gate...

Sorry for the shadowy pic on that last one, lighting was not my friend that day. And finally, I have a new start to show you. I've been so good working on old WIPs for the most part this year that I decided to treat myself to a new start. In my defense it has actually been kitted and ready to go for awhile and it was on my list of WIPs-to-be so it wasn't totally impulsive. I've wanted to have TW's Fantasy Triptych for our bedroom for a long time so here we go, I estimate a finish sometime before I retire...

Fantasy Triptych 6/5/12


I'm stitching on 32 count antique white Lugana and am remembering just how much TW likes confetti. I know it will be worth it in the end but for now let's just not look at the back. The plan for now is to keep on this one until TUSAL time and then switch back to the fishes. We'll see what I can accomplish with the limited Summer stitching time I have. Back soon with pics from our recent trip. We had a great time but it's nice to be back too.

Great progress. And, since it was already on your list, the new start does not sound like cheating to me.

Your WIPs look wonderful. I love seeing Fish City appear one fishie at a time. And, you KNOW I love Watergarden. As for the TW, I will never judge ANYONE for the back of their work. I mean, once finished, no one will see anything but the front anyway. And that will be gorgeous. So no worries!

Oooh, Fantasy Triptych, one of my favourites. Despite the huge amount of confetti and gallons of green I truly loved stitching it! All 3 WIPs are looking fabulous.
