Wipocalypse 2017 (updated 02/01/17)

Welcome to another year of Wipocalypse. For info on Wipocalypse click the dragon picture.

The list will have the starting picture and possibly the latest picture of the progress (if I get time in the year to update); see also annotations on finished goals etc in purple.

2017 target ... is 10! I felt that it would be appropriate to have less goals this year. So far there is 0/10 goals done or 0%

A quick aside: there is no way I will actually do all of the set goals. So I will be happy with a few big finishes, some new starts (or rather the decrease in stash to something realistic that could be done this lifetime), and some UFOs joining the human world of stitching progress.


Ongoing (and those started in 2016):

1) Christmas Candle - HAED [Goal: Complete another 2 pages - i.e. preferably the top row]
So far 0/2 (goal) and 5/36 (total)

Last year I started a page on the new row due to a challenge I was participating in on the Heaven and Earth Designs forum. Hopefully I will get a chance to finish the top row so that I can then roll up the design. 

August 2016

2) Sheep SAL by Little House Needleworks [Goal: complete another 3 sheep]
So far 0/3 (goal) and 6/12 (total)

I have fallen behind in my sheep SAL ... and not sure whether it is even possible to catch up.

  1. I found your blog at SFS
    What a beautiful wips
    I have 5 wips ans want to get back at 4
    The reason is that i work every other week on a different wip only when a wip is nearly finished i work a longer time on it
    I all so love haed but they take only such a long time
    I started my first one on febr 2013 and of course i started a huge one 400x 531 stitched
    I love working on big peaces but this one is a giant one for me
    Hopefully you get your haed allso one day finished because they are so lovely
    I saw how much you work, so i take my hat of for you that you still find time and energy to stitch
    Below is a link of my blog if you are interested who i am and what i do :)
    My blog is still developing because i just started a blog sinds end of 2014
