WIPocalypse Check-In – February 2012

I have to keep reminding myself that it is only February, even though the weather outside makes it feel more like late March. And, because it is only February, I need to remind myself that it is okay that I haven’t accomplished all that much so far this year. I mean, it’s what, only 39 days into the year, right? So far I’ve finished a shawl, knit a sock and a half, did a bit of sewing, and put in some work on my cross stitch pieces. Not bad at all.

For WIPocalypse this month, I’m still working away on TW’s Gingerbread House. Truthfully, all the quarter stitches are killing me, so it is slow going. I think I might take a little bit of time away from it, so I don’t get mad at it. (Thank you again, Christine, for being so patient.)

I will probably pick up Joan Elliott’s 12 Days of Christmas again this month, since I really want to finish it this year. But, I have to admit, I do have a new start. I bought Lynn B’s lovely Alphabet Peacock Sampler. I’m stitching mine using Waterlilies silk in colourway Peacock, and the fabric a hand-dyed from Enchanting Lair.

    Ah yes, I stitched TW’s Gingerbread House a few years ago and was gobsmacked by how many stitches were fit into such a small space.

    But the time spent is well worth it. It is a sweet little piece :)

    I’m not a peacock fan but I love that silk color! Perfect for this!
