Happy New Year WIPocalypse Kick Off

Dutch Sampler by Sandy Orton
Hi Everybody!  My name is Cheryl.  I live in Atlanta, Georgia USA and have been participating in the WIPocalypse stitch along since it began in 2012. (And still have many of the same WIPs as I did back then. lol.)

I am starting 2017 with 47 WIPs (all WIPs are shown here), which I hope to whittle down over the year.  Last year I began with 51 on my list, I finished 6 of those and added 2 new projects to the WIPs list - so I am making progress.  (I also finished 18 additional projects from start to finish, for a grand total of 24 finishes.)

Here are some of the WIPs that I hope to complete this year:

"Dutch Sampler" (progress shown above)

"To Everything a Season" Sampler:
my progress:

"Rambling Rose" miniature sampler:
my progress:

"Too Much Honey" sampler:
my progress:
I hope to finish the 4 projects shown above (at least), as well as make significant progress on my other WIPs.  I do have a couple of other new projects waiting in the wings, but will hold off for a bit and see how things develop.

I also have been participating in both the "Hallowe'en Ornie SAL" and the "Christmas Ornie SAL" for the past few years, which I hope to continue this year (for at least some of the months).

That sums up my stitching goals for 2017.  I look forward to seeing what all of you other stitchers are planning for the new year.

Happy Stitching!


  1. Happy new year! Great goals, I'm glad to see "Dutch Sampler" which is one of my favorite. Amitiés et bonne année 2017. xxx

  2. Those are lovely focus pieces and a nice variety of styles as well.

  3. Can't wait to see progress on the above as well as a few of the others you have on your list. I'm encouraged that I too can whittle down my WIP/UFO projects.

  4. That sounds a lot like my plans. I hope to finish off several WIPs this year too without starting too many new ones. Good luck and Happy New Year!

  5. Good luck! Nice choice of projects :)
