WIPocalypse - April to July

Yep, this year doesn't seem to be different from last  year....a group WIPocalypse blog post.  You will like it!

April's question:  What do you listen to while stitching?

Well, I LOVE audio books.  This is where I can do the two most favorite things at the same time and I don't need to be cloned!  While listening to Amazonia and the Divergent Series I was stitching Queen Bee.  While stitching the Cube of Oblique I was listening to the Mongoliad Series (that's ongoing still since those books are huge), and I have stitched so many things while listening to my beloved Hamish MacBeth Mysteries I cannot even begin to start that list!  

It is difficult for me to have the TV on while stitching unless I have seen a particular movie so many times I don't need to look, but I can stitch to any show on the ID channel.

May's question:  What were you stitching this time last year and have you finished it?

That is a great question!  So let's take a look....

I finished all of Magical's Ornament of the Month Series which is how I ended up with the beautiful biscornu...which ended up being a birthday present for a beloved friend.

I also finished the "Friends" quilt that Wendy had a BOF or Block of the Fortnight going.  This is hanging in my cubicle at work.

I started working on the Cead Mile Failte in earnest this year but still have not finished, so sadly it is still hanging around waiting it's turn for more stitching.

June's question:  Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in summer or winter?

I would have to say winter usually.  This year has been a bit strange as it hasn't mattered what the weather, I'm stitching all of the time. In the past, it has been January and February that see the most getting done.

July's question:  Olympic Challenge....oh boy!  I was excited about this idea months ago and it still gets me excited.  I'm going for the distance!  For the WIN!  So I have these WIPs.  As we all do.  I will have that WIP and go for the finish!  GOING FOR THE GOLD!  

Right now I have Stitching Pirates still on the go, but with the George Washington Group and the stitching events Lisa puts on, I've managed to get some serious stitching done on it.

I'm hoping to be done with this very soon so I can grab the next WIP and get that done as well.  August is coming!

There you have it!  Up to the minute WIPocalypse!

I hope you all are as busy as you look on stitching!

Until next time.....Keep on Stitchin'!
