May WIPocalypse update

Ack!  I'm doing a terrible job with WIPocalypse projects this year.  My intentions were to work on Mary Wigham and The Tulip Sample but I haven't touched them -- not even once.  Here is a picture of these 2 projects.  Maybe if I look at them here, I'll get motivated to stitch on them.  They are both about half done.

What I have been working on is an exchange piece that I can't show to you but here's the fabric I plan backing it with:

And here's El Muro II, a SAL I've been working on.  It's coming along nicely and I'm happy with my color changes.  This is such a cute little village.

And lastly, I've finished my monster for the Halloween SAL.  It's Wicked Night from The Primitive Hare and, yes, it is a bit large for a small but I LOVE(!!!) it.  It needs to be 'aged' in coffee yet before I finish it into something.  It's stitched on 22 ct ivory hardanger fabric with dmc 3371.

It's hard to believe May is half over and considering the yucky spring we've been having, even harder still.  We are supposed to get another inch of rain today.  My back yard is a mushy mess and the grass is growing higher every minute.  ..... sigh .....

Enjoy your day!


  1. Marcy what lovely projects!! I love the Mary Wigham one and your colour choice for this one is fabulous :)

  2. Love how your SAL is looking!

  3. Nevermind Marcy at least you were working on projects you loved. Wicked night is totally wicked, congrats on that finish!

  4. The Mary Wigam and your Tulip Sampler are gorgeous -- you should definitely pick those back up again! Nice progress on your other pieces, too.

  5. I love the little town SAL, such a sweet design.
    Your headless horseman is fantastic too, looking forward to seeing how you age him. Maybe you'd like to take photos and do a little tutorial for the SAL Blog? Hmmm? Please?
