February 2013 WIPocalypse Check-In

Another month has gone by… and it’s time to check in on WIPocalypse progress again!

With the storms that have been flying through New England every weekend, I’m getting quite a bit of stitching done, and I imagine fellow New England stitchers probably are as well. While this weekend’s storm is due to bring my area rain, up to a foot or so may fall only about 30 minutes north of us. It’s crazy, especially after last winter’s complete lack of, well… winter. I guess this is Mother Nature’s way of making up for lost time.

I keep forgetting to post my own progress, but I’ll blame that more on pregnancy brain than anything else! If you’ve seen my pregnancy progress ticker, I’m now in the final days, so things are a bit crazy around here with final preparations. Out of precaution, I’m creating March’s check-in post now and scheduling it to post on time… the check-in date is only two days after my due date. I imagine I’d forget about the blog post if I didn’t do it now!

Looking forward to browsing through everyone’s progress photos during my bleary-eyed feedings with Max in the middle of the night next month. 🙂

Happy stitching everyone!

Important SAL Announcements…

Next month’s posting date:  March 27

Themes for the upcoming month:  If you’re looking for a way to decide what to work on, and want to play along with a theme idea, maybe try one (or more!) of the following:

Designer – Chatelaine

Project Theme/Style – Springtime (or, if you’re on the opposite side of the equator, autumn)

Focus Colors – Green and Yellow



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 as I have a free moment.

    When I posted my link on 3-14, the blog post had not published correctly, so it gave an error. I did not notice that until I came to do the March check in today. So sorry for the problem, it has been updated.
