May WIPocalypse

Hello everyone!

Been kind of absent from the blogging world this month as work has been crazy hectic, including mandatory overtime (aka the Weekend Killer). As such, my stitching has been a little spotty, but I've managed to make a bit of progress here and there.

For starters, I managed two more pages on Favorite Bird, which completes my goal for the year:
This one is dueced hard to get a good picture of, but there are now two table legs featured, not just one. ;)

I also managed to finish a page on Flora:
That red flower was quite challenging, but I loved stitching all those dark fuchsias and pinks.

Everything else has been interrupted, for lack of a better term. I've been so busy even outside of work (May is always my busiest month) I couldn't really focus on anything for long. But here are a few more leaves on my Tigers, still a long way from done:

A couple columns done on Wisdom, which I haven't touched since February:

And three columns done on Luna's second row:
I really love that bright blue spot at the top. The next few pages are nothing but clouds, but I am in love with her background, so I'm not complaining. :)

So for the year thus far, I now have three goals complete. Doesn't seem like many, but I'm close to meeting a few more, so I feel good about my progress this year.
For April, I did 16,184 stitches, so my total for the year is 57,657 stitches. May has not been nearly as productive, but every stitch counts! :)

This month's question is: What were you stitching this time last year and have you finished it?
Last May, I barely stitched at all. I only managed one week on Luna, which is still far from finished (but will be one day!).

That's all for now. Until next time!


  1. Work does seem to get in the way of stitching. But I work to buy more stash. Lol. Great progress on your pieces

  2. Even with your work taking up time it seems like you made some nice progress.

  5. Thanks for the comment on my blog, you are a "no-reply" person though.

    You have some huge projects on the go, well done on making progress on so many of them this month.

  6. Lovely progress =) I am so much looking forward to see more work on Luna and Flora! =)

  7. Nice to cross another off of the list and good luck with the rest of May. They are all looking beautiful.
