I hope I haven't disappointed you by being absent but we have been on an Easter break. It is the end of first term here in Australia so we took ourselves off to Melbourne for a 5 day trip. Mary danced in the Champion of Champions of Australia Highland dancing competition on Easter Saturday and Sunday so it was fun to extend the trip by a couple of days. She came home with a fifth overall trophy for her section which delighted us all.

I have two main projects for WIPocalpyse 2014 which are the Bothy Threads Cut Thru Castle and Promises Kept by Dimensions, a version of a Noah's Ark. This is my April update although I am late by 10 days - sorry!
Over the last month I have completed the fifth page of the castle so I have started stitching the top left corner of the castle which is the tower.

The question for the WIPocalypse challenge this month is: How do I keep my stash organised? I have a large cupboard in my sewing room which holds my projects. I keep all of my WIPs in separate fabric bags so the threads, pattern and fabric stay together and are not mixed with other projects. I have a large pile of cross stitch patterns in my cupboard also that are piled up high. Kits that I haven't started yet are also piled together. Now that might all sound very organised but there is some chaos in there and its not all that neat. It's not photo worthy LOL.
