WIPocalypse 2015 – June

This month's topic: Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in summer or winter? I try to stitch a few hours each day, but I will admit I get more done in the winter than I do summer. Living in Canada, we get a lot of snow in winter and more often you'll find me at home staying out of the cold. I really dislike snow, so no winter sports for me. In the summer, I try to go out when it's nice outside even if all I feel like doing is staying at home and stitching.

Still nothing on Bramble and the Rose.

Very small update on Tree of Hope again. I've tried to stitch on in a bit each week without success. For now I'd rather stitch on other things.

The dragons have still not made an appearance.

This is what I've been preferring to stitch. Fantasy Lace got a lot of attention this month. The cable stitching and satin stitched lines are all done. I'm now stitching the flowers that go under the cable stitches. I have half of them left to do and then I can move onto the button hole border.

A bit more stitching on Pretty Little San Francisco. This is my go to piece when I feel like cross stitching something simple. But again, I didn't spend that much time on it.

Satsuma Street - Pretty Little San Francisco

In my defense, I was pretty busy this month. I worked on a small "crewel" practice piece for myself.

And I had a two day class with Hazel Blomkamp and went stash crazy.

I went stash crazy again that same week and decided to learn knitting again. I started and finished a cowl in two days.


  1. Great progress. I'm like you - sometimes I feel like working on something, sometimes I don't. Go with what you want to work on!

  2. Lovely update. Congrats on the finishes and nice progress.
