PROGRESS ON MY WIP’S


As promised, I am here to update you on the projects I am working on.  First up; The Linen and Threads Mystery Sampler:

I have finished the January section on this Sampler and am loving how it turned out!  My threads finally arrived, so I will be able to continue on when I am ready.  I am not sure how I want to stitch the February and March borders.  I am even thinking of adding another color.  This is a FREE SAL, so if you are interested in doing it check out the Linen and Threads website for all the details.   Until I decide, I have set it aside and have continued on with Ella.

I finally finished that gap in the bottom of Ella’s dress!  Yay!  I actually finished a bit more, too and here is how she looks today:

I am actually enjoying working on her.  All the colors of the flowers are breaking up the yellow, so I will continue on with her for now.  If you are seeing this for the first time, it is Mirabilia’s Ella, the Frog Princess.  I am stitching her on 16ct Aida Pandora from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.

And lastly, my temperature blanket.  I ran out of teal yarn about a week ago, so this is how I left this project:

I’m not completely thrilled with the colors so far.  But it is still winter.  I think I finished with the temp’s on March 17.  I have more yarn on order, so as soon as it arrives, I will get back to it.

So that is what I have been up to.  I have a few projects that I am kitting up to get started, but that is for another day.  What have you been up to?  What is the longest project that you have had in your WIP pile?
