my June WIPocalypse Update

Multi-Coloured Alphabet by Gail Lawther
It's time for another WIPocalypse update (and past due for a Gifted Gorgeousness update)!  These are projects I hope to finish before the end of the world, as well as projects gifted to me & that I am stitching as gifts for others.

I have had a bit more stitching time the past couple of weeks, so I pulled out some of my neglected projects to stitch on.  Shown above is "Multi-Coloured Alphabet" by Gail Lawther, on which I made some pretty good progress.  I am following the shape of the pattern, but I am just using floss in variegated colors - placing them where they seem to fit.

Here is where I left off last time:
I also stitched on "Carousel Tiger" designed by Angela Pullen.  The hind legs and tail are taking shape.  This was a kit gifted to me by my sister (along with the matching "Carousel Zebra" and "Carousel Lion", both of which I have finished).  This kit had issues with floss and blending filament shortages - so it sat neglected for quite awhile.

Here is how the project looked when I last posted:

I did continue on a bit with my Dutch Sampler as well.  I stitched more on the windmill and finished the medallion next to it (lower right area).

I also stitched a bit more on my "Cow Sampler" ... but I will save that one for next time when I have more progress completed.

The topic of the month:  Show us your stitching space!  Where do you sit, and what is going on around you while you stitch (TV, audiobooks, etc)?

Honestly, I don't have a special stitching space.  I am often sitting at the computer in the kitchen stitching while I earn swagbucks (to use to buy more stitching supplies, lol), or I stitch in the front room while watching tv, or in the back room before I go to bed.  Wherever I can find some good light and a little bit of time.

That's all for this update.  I can't wait to see what everyone has been working on!  I don't comment very often, but I do make the rounds to get inspiration from all of you fellow stitchers.

Happy stitching!
