January WIPocalypse and a pre-IHSW pic

First of all, welcome to the new followers since I've acquired several of you lately. I'm glad you found me and I look forward to exploring your blogs as well. I'm especially excited to see that some of you are located in Poland as my family has quite a bit of Polish heritage (all of my great great grandparents on my mother's side were born there). I love how the internet can bring the stitching community so close together even though we live so far apart.

Since I'm running a bit behind as usual I'm going for a WIPocalypse/pre-IHSW combo post today. It's been busy and snowy here, winter is definitely in full swing with no Spring in sight. I don't mind much except when I have to be out driving in it and I've been out more than in lately. Oh well, I'll thaw eventually!

The WIPocalypse topic of the month was an intro and goal listing for the year. I pretty much covered goals under the WIPocalypse tab at the top of the blog and in a previous post so I won't repeat that but if you don't already know me I'm Sara and I'm a stitcher. I live in northern Indiana in the United States and I'm married to a great guy named Erich. We have an awesome 5 year old son and an American Bulldog. I pay the bills as a retail pharmacist by day (sometimes evening too). When I'm not stitching I love to read, cook, and travel with family. Since the little guy is old enough we've recently gotten back into camping too though that hopefully will be off the table again soon as we hope Josh will not be an only child but what is meant to be will be.

On to the stitching- first up is my new start since last check-in, the blob that will someday in the distant future be HAED's Space Traveler...

Not much to look at now but I'm working my way toward some nice swirls so I should at least have some color changes coming up. I plan to focus on this one as soon as the birth announcements are done. Speaking of which...

Here's my progress as of Friday morning and my pre-IHSW pic. I can tell you there will be progress to show come Monday at the very least because I stayed up way too late last night stitching and watching tv. Hopefully I'll have more to show than the half of a baby head I got done last night though. We shall see.

Going to leave it at that for now since this is a quick post from the car on my phone (the hubby is driving, not me:) ). If you're unfamiliar with the two SALs I've mentioned please feel free to click on the links in my sidebar, normally I'd link in the post but it's a little tricky on the phone. As I said I've been spending a lot of time traveling lately and hope to be able to fill you in on the why soon. Happy stitching!
