WIPocalypse Posting for February

WIPocalypse has been a wonderful thing for me. I have 4 finishes so far and am about 1/2 way to another.

I finished JBW's Teddy Bear in early January for the first posting.
I have since finished my Sampler des Bouquets, a 1997 JBW Christmas ornament and Mirabilia's Valentine Fairy. You can see these finishes in earlier posts. Not only did I finish Valentine Fairy - I finish finished it yesterday. lol. I love the pretty marbelized fabric that I chose. It is subtle and doesn't take away from the stitching. I had chosen a different fabric but the ladies in my quilt group informed me that it was too bright and did not do the stitching justice.

I  finished my mystery quilt for my local quilt group. It is now ready to go in our quilt show March 3rd.

I have been working away on my round robins.

I stitched Spring Bouquet on Catherine's Mirabilia Round Robin. Her layout is absolutely stunning and it was a great pleasure to stitch on it. She asked us to add a flower to the triangles on the outside edge and hide our initials in it. Can you see mine in the yellow block?



I stitched a Christmas tree on Denise's Twenty-Twelve Round Robin. My poor tree looks rather lonesome at the moment but I am sure once other trees are added it will look much better.


I have one UFO RR sitting on my couch to work on. I will work on that and work on my LHN Summer Splendor. Hopefully, another finish is in the near future.

I am having trouble keeping up with my google reader. There are so many wonderful stitchers out there now who are blogging. There are over 200 of you in my reader. I just can't keep up with reading and commenting on all of them. I try my best. If I don't comment, please don't think I am not reading. I am and I will comment when I can.

Until next time, I hope the only frogs you see are hibernating until the warmer weather arrives.

You always have the prettiest finishes. I think that pink fabric for the fairy is perfect! Good luck with the quilt!

I think that tree RR is such a cool idea. You'd end up with a forest of trees at the end of the year!

That's the prettiest and sweetest Valentine pillow I've ever seen. I absolutely love how the pink of the fabric matches the pink in the design exactly.

Found your initials. Took me a while but I see them now ^.^ This RR is gonna turn out stunning!

Hugs,
Veronica.

I love your Valentine Fairy, I recently received this kit and probably should stitch it for my girls while they are still little.

What a stunning RR, I just love the layout with the dripping vines.
