WIPocalypse Check-in: June 2015

WIPocalypse ButtonHello again everyone!

It’s June, yet you’d never know if you went outside my office building today… very cold and damp, much more like the end of March/early April than the beginning of summer out there! I even had to pull the winter coat back out of the closet yesterday. Rumor has it that we’ll be returning to seasonal temperatures soon, though. They can’t come soon enough, as I refuse to put the heat on this late into the season.

It’s been a productive stitching month on my end – I’ve focused on the birth sampler for my son, Max. I’m stitching the birth sampler by Rosewood Manor for him, and I’m just about at the point where I need to stop to chart all of Max’s details onto graph paper so I know I have it centered properly. I’m genuinely surprised how fast it’s developed, when the first band took a little while to get into. I suppose that’s just the rhythm of stitching, isn’t it?


Question of the Month

Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in summer or winter?


As the warmer weather approaches, I’m looking forward to some comfy stitching time outdoors. One of my favorite coffee shops added a new location just before the Christmas holidays, and they have an outdoor patio that’s covered. I’ve been looking forward to trying it for some coffee and stitching ever since. Now I might finally be able to do so. I’d like nothing better than a place to enjoy the fresh air, a cup of chai, and my stitching. 🙂

I hope you have a lovely month with your projects! Just as a reminder – we’ll have two separate postings in July, since it’s a blue moon month.

See you next month!



Important SAL Announcements…

Next month’s posting dates: July 2 and July 31

Topic for next time: Reality or Fantasy. Which do you prefer to stitch? Figures or Abstract? (this question comes to us via Jo)

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.

    Thanks for choosing my topic for next month!

    Looking forward to seeing Max’s birth sampler. It might inspire me to finish my six year old’s dragon!
