WIPocalypse 2016 – May


This month's theme is: What were you stitching this time last year and have you finished it? (via Jo) About this time last year, I was working on finishing up some of my smaller class projects from the Creative Festival. But I also worked on this Crewel piece which I later find out is not really Crewel at all since I wasn't stitching with wool thread. As you can see I did finish it :) It was my first attempt at transferring and stitching a pattern. Now that I see this again, I think I should frame this in a hoop. I wonder where it is...



By the time this gets posted I will be in Toronto attending the EAC Seminar. This also means that I didn't really progress on any of my WIPs. I promise it won't be like this when I come back :|

Nothing to see here either :P
No Update
Satin Stitches - Donna's Fantasy Lace

I haven't touched Fandango either, but since this is my class project for Seminar you can definitely bet that there will be progress on it. I just won't be able to share it until I get back at the end of May. I did take a better picture thought, last month's was really bad.

The two WIPs I added last month saw a lot of progress. I not only finished this mat, I managed to stitch a second one identical to it. I just have to figure out how to cleanly finish the edges of this really (frustratingly) thick fabric.

I also attended the second part of my Italian drawn thread class. This project received the bulk of my attention as I had homework to complete.

  6. The crewel work is lovely! And the drawn thread project is just neat.

    I hope the seminar is fun! I look forward to seeing your updated Fandango when you're back!
