First WIPocalypse Post of 2012

Here is my very first WIPocalypse post of 2012 and I have made some progress.

JBW's Teddy Bear made into a birth sampler is finished and posted in an late December post.

I have made some more stitches on my Sampler des Bouquets.
Before:

Now:


My nutcracker RR is coming along. Thanks to the generosity of my Floss Fairy, Karen I have some 310 and was able to finish the gridding.  I will stitch the left corner nutcracker, put a title on it and send it out for the 27th.

I consider my first WIPocalypse post a resounding success. For the next one - we shall see!





And the reason for cleaning up fabric. I had to empty my entire park model. We had a new vinyl floor installed.
I LOVE it. It will be so much easier to keep clean.

Hopefully, not a single frog will enter. They cannot hide on this color floor (or so I tell myself).

Happy Stitching everyone!

Wonderful progress on the Jardin Prive piece, Kathy and it looks like your nutcracker RR is good to go!

Amazing new floor--I would have thought it was stone!!

This month's WIPocalypse is a resounding success! Your Jardin Prive is really moving along and it won't be long before that nutcracker is complete.

Your new floor is gorgeous Kathy! The frogs may show up but the dirt won't!

What a great idea to get frog repellent flooring - exactly what every stitcher needs. It looks great.

Love your Sampler des Bouquets, it's coming along well.

Great new flooring!

robindefender said...

What a pretty sampler, and it looks like you've made great progress!

If your new floor really does keep the frogs away, I'll have to invest in some similar flooring of my own! LOL

Great progress on both pieces, very obvious progress too which is always so gratifying.

Great new flooring. Maybe I'll get to check it out sometime in a year or two?

Nice progress on your WIPs, Kathy. The new floor looks great! I have hardwood, ceramic tile, and linoleum in most of my house. There's only a 12x12 section of carpet in the livingroom. Definitely easier to keep clean and better for allergies!

Hi my dearest Kathy,

Well, this kit is yours then! I'll read your blog later this evening, have to cook some dinner now ;)

Till later & hugs, Carolien
