WIPocalypse (August 20)

This month's themes were: Designer – Long Dog, Style – Smalls, Colors – Blue and Red.
  • I have never done a Long Dog design. Don't think I even own one.
  • I suppose my TAST, BJP and Purple Daisy could be considered "smalls" --- for me, they are, anyway.
  • As for blue and red --- not a stitch in either color!
So much for themes to keep me stitching!

My only completions during the past lunar cycles were TAST - Zig Zag Chain,
Woven Zig Zag Chain, Vandyke Stitch, and Woven Cross Stitches

I did bead a little on the June butterfly for BJP but it still is three wings short of being complete, and started on Laura J Perrin's Purple Daisy class - Lesson One is complete and lesson two is 25% complete:

Still works in progress (rapidly turning into UFOs) are "Midnight Garden" (which hasn't been touched since June), three BJP butterflies (June, July, and August), my August Crazy Quilt Journal Block, the InkCircles online "Roll Your Own" mandalas (there are six so far), Janet Perry's online class on stitching journals/background stitches (printed out but not read, let alone started) and Janet Perry's Stitch Guide practicum (which just arrived in yesterday's mail). What is more, there is a quilt block I really need to assemble for the Quilt Retreat Challenge in October and there is another that needs assembly of a quilt guild January challenge; I have the fabric for both and am awaiting some embellishments purchased online, but not gotten any further...

Not a good stitchery month for me. Too much traveling (a weekend at a stamping expo and a two night stint at the Stratford, Ontario Festival), too much prep for the fair (out of nine entries: 5 blues, two reds, one white and an honorable mention; also helped at Quilt Day set up) and a nasty cough/cold have held me back, I fear. Also, that stitching mojo seems to still be in hiding...
