WIPocalypse Challenge #2

Hi everyone! Back with an update on the WIPocalypse Olympic Challenge. I've been having lots of fun switching through projects every day, though it's sometimes hard to put them down so soon!

Monday I worked on Death by Cross Stitch, which is still lots of fun:
The lighting at work is really bad, but you get the idea. :) Making good progress on my unicorn!

Tuesday I got back to my R2D2 Silhouette. Forgot to take a "before" picture, but I added 294 stitches. Pretty easy since it's all black:

Today I picked up a newer start. This is from the Frosty Forest series, from Country Cottage Needleworks:
I plan on stitching all 9 in the series on the same piece of fabric, so I've got a loooong way to go! But the little critters are so cute, I think it's worth stitching all that endless snow. Stitching this on 32ct Belfast in Touch of Gray.

Still plugging away on Scale, but progress has been a bit slow. Starting to get down to all the little confetti stitches, but that means I'm closing in on a page finish:
She's finally got her nostrils! Well, most of them, anyway. But I think it really makes a difference. It would be nice to have a page finish this weekend... but we'll see. :)

Guess that's all for now. Until next time!


  1. Interesting to be doing a different project each day, are you liking the change? I like the pairing of the death by cross stitch and R2D2 with scale, such different patterns. And scale is coming along very nicely, the dark nostrils really bring out the rest of the face.

    1. Thanks Rebakah! I do like switching projects between morning and evening. I feel like I get a lot more done that way. I just wish I could stick to the same projects for longer than one day! But all the morning rotations make it easier to stick to Scale, so I shouldn't complain too much. :)

  2. You've certainly got a variety this post. I'm not sure I could stitch all that snow! But I do love them all together like that.

  3. How pretty, I love your new projects =) Death by Crossstitch is a great project, I'm still thinking about getting that one (one day). I have seem this in many different versions, stitched in solid or variegated floss or on handdyed fabric and it always looks different, but very nice. It looks like so much fun to stitch!
    I love the frosty forrest series, I enjoy winter motifs and they are all so cute! It's actually on my wishlist ;-) Does this one also contain buttons? I have seen the Santas Village stitched and it has so many cute buttons =)
    And I guess I don't need to mention that I love Scale, you know that ;-)

    1. Death is definitely fun to stitch, I think you should give it a try! The hardest part is figuring out what floss and fabric to use. :) But I love seeing all the variations people are doing. Frosty Forest does have buttons, and they are pretty cute. The one I'm doing now has a blue bird perched on top the left tree. There's another bird and a snowman too... but I'm saving all the buttons for last. :)
