Favorite Pony: Finished!

Yes, that's right, I've had a finish - and just in time for a new month! Yay! Now I've had at least one finish each month so far this year, which is completely crazy. Let's see if I can keep it up in April!

In other news, I am officially going to be a counselor at a Christian camp, Lutheridge, this summer! Yay!! I really feel like this is what God is calling me to do this summer, and I am so excited! Only downside - I won't get to do any stitching. It'll be so worthwhile though!

But I'm digressing. Back to my finish -

Favorite Pony
Dimensions Kit
Started January 8, 2013
Finished March 31, 2015

If you take out all of the time I spent completely ignoring this piece, I think it took me less than a month to stitch. But I started it as part of the Crazy January Challenge in 2013 and did not touch it after that day until this year! Then I picked it up in January for a truly dedicated week before I went back to school, and then I worked on it for the second half of this month. It feels great to finish this piece!!

Happy stitching, and may finishes be in your future!

March 2015 TUSAL

Here are my ORTs for the month!

And here are all my ORTs from my 2.5 years of stitching! :) I'm going to need to start squishing them down soon!

And here are two of the pieces I've been working on!

Favorite Pony
Started January 8, 2013

I'm hoping to finish Favorite Pony by the end of the month. It'll be a little tough since I don't get all that much time to stitch, but I think there's hope! I've also gotten a little further than this picture shows.

Happy stitching!

2015 Turtle Trot: March Post

I made a bit of progress on my Turtle Trot pieces this month! School has gotten pretty crazy though, so I don't expect to make much progress on most of my pieces for the next couple months. And I might be a camp counselor this summer, in which case I wouldn't get to stitch all summer! And then the cycle of school begins again. I like to dream of a future where I can stitch every day, for at least 30 minutes. That would be something.

1. Tardis 3D: None
2. Blushing Rose: None
3. Santa's Village: None (left it at home)
4. Dream: None (left it at home)

6. Sing: Progress!



7. Favorite Pony: None
8. Everything is Possible: None
9. Woodland Winter: None (left it at home)

10. Snowman and Friends: Progress!

2015 WIPocalypse: March Post

It's time for another WIPocalypse update! I admit, I'm actually writing this early and scheduling it to post on the proper date, because from February 28 until March 7 I'll be on a mission trip in Costa Rica! I couldn't be more thrilled at this amazing opportunity. I shall have to post about it when I'm back. :)

Anyway, on to the update! The topic for this post is: "If money – and time – were not limiters, what projects would be on your stitching bucket list?" Wow, what a question. Although I haven't been stitching for long, I already know I would probably say just about every Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks pattern, almost every Dimensions Gold Collection kit, along with several other Dimensions kits, a bunch of Lizzie*Kate patterns, and some Heaven and Earth Designs pieces. If only money and time weren't such limiters!

Despite limited time (especially so this month, because of midterms), I feel like I've made good progress on my WIPocalypse pieces. I haven't touched most of them, but I finally finished two of them, which were close to being finished!

1. Honor Restored: Untouched
I still haven't decided for sure about this one. I really appreciate all the suggestions I got on my last WIPocalypse post! It seems the general consensus is I should go 1 over 1. I'd like to wait until I'm positive before I do anymore work on this piece though! Also, the Kreinik I've stitched with so far is already 1 over 1, and it's about as bulky as the 2 over 1 floss, so I'm not sure how it would look with 1 over 1 floss.

2. Love One Another: Progress!



3. Flowers in Purple Vase: Finished!



4. Shell Collection: At home and untouched

5. Hummingbird Duo: Finished!



6. Margaret Sherry Christmas Mice: Untouched

7. Bookworm Fairy: Progress!



Thanks for stopping by! I shall look forward to seeing my fellow WIPocalypse-ers' progress when I get back from Costa Rica! Happy stitching~
