The WIPocalypse SAL is hosted by Measi; 12 check ins with a monthly question and lots of WIPS. Click on the button on the right; it will take you over to her blog and all of the links. We’re also on Facebook this year!
The January question is: what SALs are you participating in?
I think I mostly answered this in my January first post, but things have changed. I’m not going to worry too much about The Never Ending Band Sampler; given that I am not able to stitch 3-4 nights a week means I’m not seeing as much progress as I want to, and this is the easiest to drop.
I’m keeping up with Stitch From Stash.One more day (at least in the NZ month!) & I’ll check in there. I know it’s month one of six but it’s a good feeling to have this achieved.
I completed a piece for the Magazine SAL so that’s one of twelve. I need to get over my nervousness in finishing so that I have more than simple plastic canvas ornaments on my tree! The bonus is that these also fit perfectly into Heather’s Smalls SAL.
The biggest commitment is the round robin. Jacqui’s designer is Passione Ricamo; not at all on my list so I am finding it tough going. However I can see how amazing it will be and I will be pleased to have been a part of it.
This is about six nights worth of work. I am stitching to lots of UK comedy. All I can say is that I’m glad I use a blunt needle and a working copy/highlighter!

Gl learning how to finish things 🙂 I await any tips eagerly!
The RR especially is looking gorgeous! 🙂
It will be pretty. It’s just not my thing! Which is fine.
The Passione is gorgeous. It does look like it would be slow going with lots of backstitch, etc. Since it’s not your preferred style, the RR may be the perfect way just to try it out.
There wasn’t that much BS in reality – and it did make me laugh. There’s a key for BS in the hair, but no corresponding line on the chart…
