WIPocalypse beginning

Sigh, things haven't been going exactly as planned this year.  I haven't gotten any stitching in for about a week now and I'm starting to get cranky. 

The 'plan' was to work on my hardanger tree first.  I did get a 'before' picture

 and a 'what is should look like when finished' picture

but that's it.  I didn't even get the roller bars on the frame.

I did spend a little time over the new year weekend working on my Odds & Ends -- it isn't finished yet but there isn't much more to go.  So I think this will be my first WIPocalypse piece now.

One good thing (though it didn't happen in 2012) -- I finished my 2011 Santa -- hooray! 

I'm trying to decide if I like the yellow in the border.  It's a little bright compared with the other colors.  Except the beard -- which positively glows and draws the eye right to Santa's face.  The important thing is he's finished.

I hope your 2012 is beginning better than mine.


  1. I understand completely about not getting to stitch the first week of the year. I'm hoping that for both of us this doesn't indicate out stitching time for the rest of the year.

  2. I love your Odds and Ends, Marcy. The colors are gorgeous!!! Congrats on the Santa finish, he looks awesome. I do see what you mean about the yellow though.

    OOOOOOH!!!! My eye just popped to your WIP of Heart Note Alley. Perfection!!! :D
