April WIPocalypse

Friday, 6 April 2012
Well it's another full moon and I have been busy!  I finished up Santa's Flight on 16th March so just in time to take it to a framer at the Olympia show.  I won't post the pics again because it's the previous post to this one but you can click to see them.

I haven't, despite my best intentions, finished up Cirque although I'm so close!  Here it is as of today:


I also had a finish and a new start this month. Get Scared from Shepherds Bush was my traveling piece but it as also a quick stitch so it's now waiting to be finished as a box top:


My new start is 'Alphabet Fun' from Bothy Threads. I saw a finished one on a stand at Olympia and fell in love so I bought the kit although I've swapped out the aida for evenweave. I've not done much but I think you can make out that A is for Alien...


That's my lot for the last 28 days but I'm more than happy with my progress. Cirque will get some more work tonight but we're away for a few days from tomorrow and I won't take it with me because I need really good light to stitch on it. I guess I'll have to look at next weekend for a finish now but definitely watch this space. I then have to pick up Witchy Washy to get it finished up for framing - I need that done by the next WIPocalypse post or it won't get sent in time to be ready for me to pick up.

Well done on getting sooo close to a finish ... it is coming out amazing. Pretty dramatic. The small completion has nice colours. Want to see the box when it is done. Good luck for next month and enjoy the trip.
