2012 WIPocalypse - March Full Moon

Right, this is going to be a very short post, because my regular update post is due tomorrow.

This is a late WIPocalypse post because my social life exploded this week - my only night in was Monday!  Tuesdays are my regular Pilates night which I do with Mum.  Wednesday I had a meal out with friends to celebrate the end of the second stage of a long running project - pizza and chocolate brownie sundae!  Thursday was the March meeting of the patchwork group that I belong to (even though I don't do patchwork), and last night I was out with old friends to celebrate the 40th birthday of the friend for whom the Beetle has been stitched - asian style noodles and sticky toffee pudding!

So as of first thing Friday morning, after an evening's stitching, gossiping and admiring each other's work, the Beetle looked like this:

As you can see, there was just a last smidgen to complete and then to sign it off.

Well, that is done - I finished the Beetle today after my two hour stint collecting for Marie Curie.  It then went through the wash in a pillow case before having the living daylights ironed out of it.  It is now at the framers and I have an appointment to pick it up next Saturday.  I just hope my friend likes it after all this.

I will post a picture of the finished article tomorrow, hopefully along with some progress on something else.  Now I am going to check in with Measi and have a look at other people's work.


  1. Well done on the Beetle!! Your freind is lucky and congratulations to you !
