April 2013 WIPocalypse Check-in!

Hello again everyone!

Spring has sprung here in New England. Our forsythia bushes are in full bloom these days, which I absolutely love – those huge firey balls of yellow just brighten everything up. Tulips and daffodils are up as well. Now the weather just needs to get a little warmer so I can comfortably leave the windows open all day (or comfortably head out with Max for some fresh air).

Having the little kiddo has kept my own stitching to a bare minimum these days, although I have managed to get perhaps 100 stitches in during the last couple weeks. Definitely far less than I’m used to doing – but I know someday I’ll be able to stitch at my regular pace again.

Looking forward to reading through your entries – they’ve definitely helped me keep awake during that deadly 4 am hour feeding!

Happy stitching everyone!

– Mel.

***************************

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.
