Apologies for the late posting of the WIPocalypse this month. I confess it’s just a combination of a few different things – I always want to type a personalized entry for the check-in (it feels more genuine that way to me). But between work, the election, and some more very sad news of loss from my hometown, I’m having a rough year… and have found myself fighting to just keep going some days.
Stitching is definitely therapy this year. The holidays are going be somber, but perhaps the ones in which I’ll feel the most gratitude ever. It’s amazing how fast things can change, and how much can be lost in the blink of an eye.
I wanted to have an upbeat post, but without being able to find it within me right now (and already feeling guilty that I’m a week late)… I will keep it short this month. The two things I will say –
- I am glad 2017 is arriving soon. This year can’t end fast enough.
- Yes, WIPocalypse will run again next year, although I’ll be changing the posting dates somewhat, because I’m just not able to post on the random dates that are the full moons.
As we go into the holiday season, I wish you and yours happy days, whichever of the holidays you celebrate. Next month I’ll post the 2017 posting calendar and all of the details for the SAL going forward.
Question of the Month
What pattern (or designer) is on your must-try-to-stitch bucket list?
Important SAL Announcements…
Next posting date:December 14th
Topic for next time: Recap your accomplishments for the year! (Your finishes, your final before/after photos, etc).
Please remember that this stitch-a-long is intended to be fun – so if you’re too busy to post, too busy/ill/etc. to stitch – no worries. Post when you can and share what you have going, even if you’ve only been able to toss a single stitch into it. If you miss a few months, not a problem – just jump back in when you’re back with us! It’s not a race or a competition – we’re all just here to cheer each other on with our progress.
Due to different browsing software, some bloggers have found it difficult to check-in with their posts. There are three different ways to check in:
- Via Auto-link
- Via comments (make sure you include your blog address!)
- Via email – to measiwitch(at)gmail.com, only if the other two options are not working. Again- make sure you include your blog address! I’ll add it to the auto-link myself when I have a free moment.
