And Then There Were More WIPs

Judy, please just look away.

Let’s resume the WIP review and see how many more projects are in that basket of shame.

#6 Dutch Beauty from Permin of Copenhagen. 40ct cream linen with DMC. This was one of those FOMO (fear of missing out) starts. I should be able to finish this in 100 years.


#7 Christmas Garden from Blackbird Designs. This is like the third time I’ve re-started this one. Don’t be surprised if I restart it again. The Attic’s model was beautiful and I want mine to look like theirs!


#8 Feliz Navidad, another from Blackbird Designs. I think the 40ct Picture This Plus linen got the best of me.


#9 Strawberry Fields Stitching Bag from Hillside Samplings - it’s a classic. I really should just finish it! Too bad that the rest of the stitching is all over one.


#10 His Eye is On the Sparrow from Heartstring Samplery.  I thought I had more finished than this. This is the second start on this one.it’s no wonder I can’t get things finished; I’m always starting projects over!


Don’t worry, the parade isn’t over yet. More WIPs to come.

You have some oh-so-lovely pieces in the works. I would never put them in that "basket of shame!" I am a bit prone to starting projects over, but then, as I tell myself, "If you can do it better, what are you waiting on?"

Love seeing your WIPS. Some gorgeous starts there.

Samplings from Spring Creek said...

Whew--those all are huge projects! I can relate to the starting over

We all have long standing wips. I recently finished a Blackbird design piece that I started last summer and put away. I am now doing (I don't know how many times I have picked this up again over the years) a Pollyanna Pickering design which I started when my youngest was in a pram and he is now 19. x

I don't have that many stitching WIPs, but I do feel better about all the others languishing around my house!

Are you using a magnifier for these small count fabrics? I could not see them at all!!

Love seeing all your beautiful WIPs...you have your work cut out for you, for sure. Laughed with you on the estimation of 100 years, cringed with you on the over one on that 40 ct. Thanks for making me feel like I can manage my WIPs.
