September WIPocalypse Update

"To Everything A Season" Sampler
I'm a bit late for my September WIPocalypse update, but here it is!  These are projects that are in progress, that I hope to finish before the world ends.  

I made some progress on "To Everything a Season" a sampler by Sandy Orton.  This is a fun stitch on 28 count evenweave.  I am working on the top right corner.  Here is where I left off last time:

 I also stitched on my "Spanish Sampler" by Sandy Orton.  

I was working the Horizontal Satin Stitch below the corner.  Unfortunately, a frog was sitting on my shoulder ... I miscounted which threw off 90% of the stitching I had accomplished.  I frogged it out & will restitch at a later time.  

Moving on to "Berry Patch Rooster".  I  managed quite a bit on this one.  (No frogs in sight!)

Here is where I left off last time:

I have chosen this project for my October "One Stitch Per Day" challenge and have been stitching (at least a few stitches) on it every day this month.  I am making great progress so far!

Question of the Month: What finishing style have you never tried but would love to do?  
Hmmm ... I think I would like to try the little houses I have seen, or perhaps one of those "Quaker balls".  Something a bit different than my typical finishing style.

That's all I have this time.
Happy Stitching!


  1. These are all great WIPocalypse projects, Cheryl - I am finding it hard to choose a favourite.

  2. Beautiful work this month. I love the colours and texture in the Spanish Sampler.
    I'd like to make a Quaker Ball too, one day!
