WIPocalypse time...

My kids were suitably loopy yesterday. A sure sign it was a full moon. A full moon I say? Yes, time for ....drum roll....the WIPocalypse update number 2!!! You can compare my progress with the last WIPocalypse update here.


My laptop and I are not friends this week so I have only one stitching project update today.  I'm hoping we'll repair our relationship over week and I can get back to normal blogging next week (rather than having to take photos on my iPhone, posting to FB then uploading onto my son's computer). And yes, it is sad but true that my 11yo son's computer is better than mine! How did that happen?

The Marjolein Bastin English garden sampler has progressed alot since the last full moon with the addition of the holly basket and finches. Next up I am working on the lower border. This sampler has kept me interested the whole way through. I can't wait to start stitching the next picture; a pile of pumpkins just in time for Autumn in Australia (and picking my real pumpkins in my veggie patch).

I have a dedicated page to the projects on my WIPocalypse list which I am keeping updated as new projects jump the queue.

Thanks for walking through my garden...

You have completed so much of your MB, you must be very happy. I get inspired every time I come to your blog and see what you have done. Hope your computer and you sort things out soon.
