March WIPocalypse

Thursday, 8 March 2012
Well don't tell anyone but I pretty much threw my rotation out of the window this month in order to focus on Cirque.  There is a reason for this - I'm going to a craft show next Saturday and one of the stands is someone who I want to do some framing for me.  I want her to frame Cirque, Santa's Flight and Witchy Washy so I want to get them in a respectable state so I can discuss the framing with her.

She does have a bricks and mortar shop but it's about 4 hours drive from my house and I go there just once a year on the way up to my weekend away with my stitching friends so if I can organise the framing choices, finish the pieces and then post them to her I can pick up the finished items in June.

Anyway, that's the reason why I've not done much on the Be Attitudes Afghan but I have had some progress (Be Sweet and Be Nice are new progress):


I've also had progress on the first of the three pieces from Santa's Flight:


Plus I did have a new start which is 'Scissors by Any Other Name' from Cat's Whiskers:


And last but not least, here's Cirque:


So hopefully by the time the next WIPocalypse is due Cirque will be a finish as will Santa's Flight...

Isn't it nice to get things framed, for me it sometimes seems stitching the piece is the easy part. Your work is beautiful. Darlene

Oh gosh - you have been busy.
Loving everything you have shown here... especially Santa´s Flight and the SB Afghan...is that for Lia?
I seriously have to sort my life out if you can do these at night, after looking after two little ones during the day!!! I am going wrong somewhere!
They are all FABULOUS!!!

So many and so different from each other projects - they are all cool. However, I really admire you all that stitch those Cirque's they look way too hard to me.
