Wipocalypse 2019 (updated 29/09/19)

 After missing a year or two I am fully intending on getting back to this SAL. So 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.

2019 target ... is 12! So far there is 5/12 goals done or 41.67%

I am going to adapt a slightly different approach this year. Instead of preselecting my goals at the start of the year I will chose them every month as I go along. I can then work on that goal and any that came before it. Hopefully there will be 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 2019):

1) Sheep SAL by Little House Needleworks [Goal: complete all sheep]

So far 1/6 (goal) and 7/12 (total)

This project was started as a SAL, however unfortunately I have fallen off the blogging and stitching world before completing it...

  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
