October 2016 WIPocalypse check-in

WIPocalypse ButtonHappy Monday, everyone!

It’s about 10:30 pm as I type this, and it’s such a gloriously mild October evening that we have all of the windows open.  The first half of the week is supposed to be record-breaking temperatures – we’re supposed to get to 80 degrees (26C for those of you using the more common temperature measurement system)! We normally do get a short stretch of warmer weather in autumn that’s known as an Indian Summer.  This year I think it’s just… Summer II.  Now with less humidity.

I’ll take it!

I find myself starting to settle into my stitchy plans for the winter as the days grow shorter.  I think knowing that soon I won’t want to go outside other than the necessity of rushing from a building to the car makes me want to get my inside projects all in order.  Of course, that also means I’m trying to think about what I’ll be doing for stitching in 2017.  There’s a Facebook group that is doing a stitch-from-stash challenge.  I’ve joined the group, although I haven’t committed to it yet.  I need to really sit down with my WIP and UFO pile and make some good decisions about what I can and want to do.

WIPocalypse will continue again for 2017.  I’ll get dates and plans up next month – so if there’s anything you really want to see, please speak up!  🙂


Question of the Month

What online stitching communities do you enjoy?



My bed is calling, so I’ll stop here for this post.  Have a lovely rest of October with fast-flying needles!

Happy stitching,



Important SAL Announcements…

Next posting date:November 14th

Topic for next time: What pattern (or designer) is on your must-try-to-stitch bucket list?

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.
