WIPocalpyse January posting and Crazy 7!

Well New year came and went and it was not a good one for me. Hopefully the rest of the year will get better and not worse from here on in. Now, I did have two new starts before the new year and due to the craziness of the week - it was ds' birthday yesterday - I only managed 5 new starts so I will add on the 2 I started before the new year as my crazy 7 and they will all go towards my WIPocalpyse post. So without further ado, here is my progress on my 7 new starts:

DAY 1


Lizzie Kate ABC's of Christmas
Silkweaver 32 count Lugana and Crescent Colours threads

Really pleased with progress on this one as I have completed a full row already. The fabric is greener than in the picture and the colours really pop on it. Love it.

Day 2



Yiota's Cross stitch kit Poppies and Daisies
14 count black aida and madiera threads

You have seen this one in my previous post and so I am counting it towards my Crazy 7

Day 3 (truthfully - the first new start of the year!)



Here we come Wassailing by Shakespeare's Peddler
40 count linen and Gentle Art threads

I think this will be one of the first ones to get finished as I am working quite quickly on it and it is not so very big.

Day 4



Bygone Stitches - A Quaker Christmas
36 count vintage light exemplar Lakeside linens and Threadworx thread

I am stitching this 2x2 and really love the vibrancy of the red on the fabric. Nice choice I think.

Day 5



Mckintosh samplers - The Elisabeth Lillie sampler
34 count Legacy Linen in Oaten Scone and DMC threads

The fabric is a joy to stitch on. Really pretty colours too. I am going to enjoy this one.

Day 6



Carriage House Samplers - Helen Bell's multiplication sampler
32ct dark tan fabric from silkweaver and Victorian Motto threads in Heather B shades

I like this although it seems to take forever. Just hope I can make more progress on it.

Day 7



Just Nan's Nan's Garden
28 count Lambwool linen and DMC threads

Unfortunately I took this away to start at Tracy's - another post- but I had previously dipped into the thread bag and pinched some of the colours for another project and never replaced them (a very bad habit of mine!) so I have a few threads missing so didn't get as much done on this as I would have liked. I am intending to stitch this for my mum who is also called Nan and who enjoys her garden very much.

So that's my first posting for the WIPocalypse post and you have my 7 new starts too.

I have received lots of nice gifts but I will do a separate post soon for those.

Maggie O said...

Wow, here she goes again. I didn't know you could have that many "starts" (newby here). I am thrilled working on one single project...so now I will go start something else...that should make me happ or er, confused. Well done and if your starts are anything to go by the year should be warm, colourful,cared for, passionate and just plain "perfect". All the best to you for 2012!!

Your L*K is pretty on that fabric. I should have gone tan instead of whiteish as the white probably isn't going to stand up and I'll have to outline all of the major white parts that aren't letters.
