2012 WIPocalypse - June Full Moon

It's difficult to believe that it's June already and time for another WIPocalypse post.  Where does the time go?  It is Jubilee weekend here and I'm very grateful for the extra day off.  Last week was extremely tiring as both my colleagues are on annual leave, so it has been non-stop just trying to stay within spitting distance of being on top of things.  I have another few days of this to look forward to before they come back from their holidays, by which time I will be in desperate need of a holiday myself!

However, we should be talking about stitching.  The second Delft piece has moved on, not as much as I would have liked, but nevertheless there has been progress.  I need to finish the inner border, stitch the outer border and another butterfly in the top left hand corner.  However it is now going to have to go on hold for obvious reasons.

The Cat is now slightly over a quarter complete, which definitely means that it will require some serious input over the next few weeks.  There are a few berries to go in at the top left and another leaf and some berries to go in at the centre bottom, and then they need to be joined up with backstitching.  Then I will concentrate on the Cat himself.

 Finally Carnation has had its regular three blocks of stitching, finishing off row 2 and moving on to row 3.  The next three blocks will include the very top of the little girl's head, and the rest of page 2 will be more flowers and lanterns.

My parents' road is supposed to be having a Street Party tomorrow afternoon, so I have to get up early tomorrow to prepare picnic food.  I shall also have to keep my fingers crossed as the weather is likely to be unreliable.  I also need to dye my hair, do a pot wash and get sorted for a return to work on Wednesday.  So I will leave you now and update you again next Sunday.   All the best.


  1. Your updates look great, with some beautiful projects on the go - I especially love the blues in the delft work piece, but then again I'm a sucker for blue!

  2. Hope you enjoyed your extra day this weekend. Your progress is wonderful and I look forward to seeing what you accomplish at next month's update.

  3. You're making great progress on your WIPs! Hope you get that holiday soon!

  4. Excellent progress. the delft piece is just delightful!
