my WIPocalypse Update : April

Time for another WIPocalypse update. This month I had several small finishes, which brings me up to 7 finishes for the year.  Hooray!  My most recent finish is the Mary Engelbriet Puppy, a small ornament kit with its own frame.

I finished this little owl ornament for the Halloween Ornie SAL.  I used part of a candle band design by Elizabeth Spurlock that was featured in the JCS October 2014 issue.  I stitched the owl on 14 ct. plastic canvas and backed it with felt.

I finished the Stitchers Sampler which is a freebie design.  I tried to locate the designer, but had no luck.

I also finished stitching "Year of the Rabbit", a freebie by Gazette94 - which is shown in my previous post.

I stitched a bit on Nature's Alphabet, which I plan to spend more time on this month.  I really would love to finish one of my larger projects.

Here is my current progress:

This month's discussion topic:
Which specialty stitches do you love doing on projects? Which do you dread?
I enjoy using specialty stitches on projects - especially stitches I haven't yet tried.  I look forward to mixing things up once in awhileI haven't really run across any stitches that I dread.  My Grandma taught me to make French Knots as a child, so I have happy memories tied to those.  I used to hate back stitching, but I do love the way it makes a design "pop" ... so I have come to appreciate it.

That's all for my April update.  I hope you all are having beautiful weather.
Happy Stitching!
