Time for another WIPocalypse update. I have had a busy month ... I started 31 new projects in January and am working on my old WIPs (a different one each day) during February.
Shown above is the most recent project I stitched on. "Winter Sampler" by Sandy Orton. I made good progress yesterday - I did a lot of back stitching, and started the area to the left of the heart.
Here is a photo from the last time I worked on it (December):
On Feb 5th I stitched on "Summer Sampler" by Sandy Orton:
On Feb 4th I stitched on "BeeHive Sampler" also by Sandy Orton:
On Feb 3rd I worked on "Berry Patch Rooster":
While I really enjoyed starting a new project each day in January, it is hard to work just 1 day on a larger WIP and then put it away. Progress feels very slow. I am happy to make a little progress on all of my projects, though.
This months WIPocalypse question:
How do you overcome that feeling that you’re in a rut with a particular project?
I sure haven't had that problem in a long time! I think the cure is to switch projects. When I get tired of the endless back stitching on a project, I switch to a project that has no back stitching. When I get tired of confetti stitching, I switch to a project with lots of big blocks of color. I also alternate with other types of crafts - journals, latch hooking, doodling, etc ...
That's all for now!
