March WIPocalypse update...

Happy Sunday all,

The most progress for my WIPocalypse has been on the Bothy Threads Cut Thru' Castle. I have almost finished my sixth page out of nine so I am happy with that.

The sixth page is about the castle moat.  It has a cute anchor, seaweed and goldfish.




I have struggled to be motivated stitching on Promises Kept which depicts Noah's Ark.  The blending of colours means that I have to be wide awake and enthusiastic which I haven't been. I will put it to the forefront this coming month though.  Nonetheless I have stitched on the sheep and partially stitched an elephant at the front to the ark.



Measi who hosts WIPocalypse would like us to share our favourite stitching place. If the weather is fabulous, I really enjoy sitting outside on my deck during the afternoon and stitching with the view of the River Derwent stretched out before me.  I really am lucky that my home has such a view.


Happy stitching…

Such a lovely place to stitch. I like to stitch outside when it's nice and sunny but my view isn't quite so pretty. Keep up the good work on your stitching they are looking great.

What a gorgeous view! I'm very jealous. Your Cut Thru Castle is looking great. I didn't touch the pirate ship this week so am hoping to get some done on Wednesday.

Jan,
Your Cut Thru Castle continues to look amazing! I just love watching your progress on this. And that view from your outside deck -- GULP! What a beautiful spot to relax with your stitching! Enjoy!

Great progress on your moat this month.

Live your view too, I can see the corner of the fish pond during the day and feel guilty about not cutting down last years irises yet!

Very nice progress on the castle, and also a small progress on the ark is a progress. Well done.

Such a wonderful stitching spot you have, how lovely.
Noah's Ark is looking lovely, and the cut through always makes me smile.
Happy Stitching!
