March WIPocalypse

Wait, has it really been another month already? Where is time going? Why I'm I making so little progress in that much time? Oh wait, I know the answer to the last one, that's because I keep being sidetracked by shiny new stuff. But seriously, I need to do some focusing - so she says while already planning ahead for at least two major new starts in March/April, sigh.

Okay, back o topic, it's the 16th of March, which is apperently a full moon and that means: WIPocalypse time! This month's topic is: Show us your favorite places to stitch.  (oh yes… photos, please!!) Well, I'm going to make this one easy for me and just reuse a photo I already posted a while ago, because my favourite place to stitch is exactly here:

Sitting on my bed/couch, preferably with the TV on, stitching happyly away. I also enjoy stitching outside when the weather is warm enough, but I usually don't have the time for it during the day, and in the evenings it get to dark, so bed it is. Once I move out I want to try and make myself a proper stitching/crafting/nerding corner/desk, but this still has to wait a little while.

So, onward to stitching progress! Sadly, I didn't get a lot done on Peacock Tapestry, I was trying to be really good today so I could show you another section on the border, but stuff kept coming in the way and so this is really all I've managed to do since the last WIPocalypse update:

Hopefully I can at least finish this section and maybe the next corner block before my next start pops up. The bright side is that I was sure by this time I'd be quite fed up with the border, but with all the other stuff that keeps coming up it's always a joy to get back to PT.

So, what were these things that kept me away from my soon-to-be-a-beautiful-bird...wll for one, I started the Game of Thrones bookmarks and I started and finished to little guniea pigs for my grandma's birthday.






And then, I'm proud to announce the The Little Mermaid is finally finished, thanks to Carly and Ashley who kept me well entertained during our pre-IHSW-hangout yesterday so I got the backstitching donw without ever getting sick of it! Still no luck concerning a meeting of Nancy and me, sadly, but I'm confident we will soon break this curse.


And that's that for stitching progress...we also watched Rise of the Guardians (I just love this kind of movie) and some more NCIS, and I did some long-overdue reading on Sherlock Holmes AND I red the Great Gatsby. Oh, and some gaming, that too...small wonder I can't get anything done, right? In any case, I'm off to bed now, so enjoy reading, and happy stitching!

  7. Congratulations on finishing the Little Mermaid and especially the guinea pigs which are adorable! No wonder you didn't get more done on Peacock Tapestry. I'm looking forward to your next WIPocalypse update in April!

    1. Thank you! Yeah, I guess all this other stuff explains the lack of Peacock stitching rather well. I'll try to get done more now, but as usual the next full moon will probably be upon me before I even know it!
