WIPocalypse 2015 - May 2015

So I did manage to get a little bit done since my last (fairly recent) update. Because it wasn't all that much, I'm only posting progress pictures, not "full scale" pictures, and only of the pieces I stitched on. I probably won't do a full "WIP photo shoot" until July (more on that at the end).

Topic: Do you look for LNS’s when you travel? What is the favorite shop you've ever found?

You know, I really don't, unless I'm traveling with my stitching friends (which I am blessed to do every few years). When I'm traveling with family, there generally isn't time. We're so busy trying to cram everything else in, and I'm the only person who would be interested in going, so I don't bother. One place I would really like to visit, though is The Silver Needle in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Should I ever get to Tulsa for some reason, I will definitely go!

But now, it's time for why you're really here: the pictures!

Titania, by Mirabilia
Hey, wing progress! Titania may fly yet. I've been saving most of the white until near the end so it didn't get dirty/dingy while working on other sections, but I think I'm about to the point that I'll need to start putting the white in on the wings to keep me from making a counting mistake.

Tiramisu, by Glendon Place
I'm quite happy with the progress on Tiramisu. I'm almost to the corner! I think I might be able to officially claim 1/4 done with it (except for beads of course; I'm a "bead at the end" type).

Baked Alaska, by Glendon Place
And last, but not least, a little bit of progress on the corner of Baked Alaska. I keep reminding myself that every little bit helps. Again, I'm getting quite close to being able to claim 1/4 done! It's quite exciting, actually.

That will do me for this month. I will be having TWO meet-ups with stitching friends in June! One is very close to the June WIPocalypse posting time, so I may hold off until after that one to post my June update. The other one is at the end of the month, but there will be shopping involved with that one, so there should be some fun stuff to show, be it stitching progress or new stash (hopefully both!). Until then, have a great month!
Currently feeling: not bad for only 3 weeks


  1. I love Baked Alaska, it looks really good. Can't wait to see it with the beads.

  2. You got quite a bit done, congrats! love the patterns
