February WIPocalypse

February 28 – Gadgets!  Show us your favorite stitching gadgets!  and How did you do with Olympic Stitching, and what goals did you achieve? 
Ink Circles "Tapestry"


And what do I have to show for myself for the Olympic Stitching?  Not much!  Somewhere at the beginning of the Olympics I finished losing my desire to stitch.



Ink Circles "Tapestry" was what I wanted to stitch.  That's as far as it was stitched.  Although I did manage to finish the March Neglected Floss SAL pattern at the beginning of the month, I had to accept the fact that I needed to work on other things. 



Gadgets!  Well now, I have some gadgets!  A book stand, biscornu, needleminder, homemade ripper, scissors, reading glasses, ort jar and floss pad.....these are the things I need when stitching comfortably.  I made the ORT jar, rippers, biscornu and floss pad.


For March I have a new start, but I will be stitching on my WIP Lizzie Kate Seasons "Spring" because March heralds the first day of spring!  Maybe these two projects will see the return of my urge to stitch?  Cannot wait to find out!


Until next time.....KEEP ON STITCHIN'!
