My 2012 WIPocalypse List (First Draft)

I'm taking part in the 2012 WIPocalypse, being hosted by Measi (see the link in my lefthand sidebar).

For my initial list, I chose to pull the WIPs out of my stitching bag. Had I gone digging in the "craft corner" in my bedroom, I might have overwhelmed myself and then quit before I started.

That means this list will be in a near-constant state of flux through the first few months of 2012. I'm okay with that.

With further ado, here is my immediate list...

Laura J Perin Designs - Lilac Collage
Laura J Perin Designs - Lilac Time (cyberclass)
Mill Hill (Spring Bouquet Collection) - Dragonfly
Sweetheart Tree - Happiness Is Being...
Sweetheart Tree - Price of Freedom
Joan Elliott (for Charles Craft) - Dragonflies on the Beach
Leisure Arts (Words of Heart) - God Is Love
Cross Stitch & Needlework / Jennifer Mitchell - Cafe Towel
Redbird Designs - Texas Twirl
Little House Needleworks - Gourmet Garden
BH&G Cross Stitch Christmas Magazine (1998) / Carole Rodgers - Over The River Sampler

There are definitely more to be added. I have a slew of dragonfly-themed projects I'd love to finish this year along with some other WsIP/UFOs that I know are hiding in my room.

I think I'll update (eventually) the "My WIPs" list/percentage bars in my lefthand sidebar to reflect my WIPocalypse progress. That just might be a good motivator for me!

TUSAL 2011 - December

Here it final TUSAL 2011 picture. As you can see, this was not a banner stitching year for me. On the plus side, I love my jar/holder and will reuse it for 2012's TUSAL!

The puzzle in the background isn't finished, either. My mom came over for New Year's Eve and our original plan was to get in some serious puzzle time. With all the chatting, eating & general excitement of the evening, we never got around to touching the puzzle. Now I'm aiming to have it done by my birthday (beginning of April).

As always, click for a larger image...
