WIPocalypse update, and some stash

Wow, time for another WIPocalypse update - I can hardly believe it's come around so fast. I've been focussing solely on Froth and Bubble so as you can see, I've made significant progress. I've got a couple of days off now so I'm hoping to get a good chunk out of the way.


I'm trying really hard not to start something else until this one is finished, but I've been sorely tempted at times. The first part of Octopus Treasure Cave was released this month and it's calling my name loudly. If the octopus itself was in the first part I'm sure I would have succumbed. And then all of this turned up...

Wait wait wait, what's the rest of the verse? You can't leave me hanging like that, stitch faster! (grin)

Froth and Bubble is a really neat piece - can't wait to see it finished!

Froth and Bubble looks gorgeous. I had to look up Octopus Treasure Cave, which took me to the Chatelaine forum, now I've got an itch to stitch my Celtic Garden WIP lol. I had been debating what to choose as my March WIPocalypse project, but now I know - diolch!

I enlarged the pic so I could really see it up close and personal :) and the colors are just gorgeous. Your stitching is beautiful too, Gill. Great job!!

Very pretty and all that stash! Good luck on a finish first.

I love how colorful that piece is.

I am also fighting the urge to start some new things--maybe next month :)

I'm so glad you're stitching this - I can stitch vicariously through you! It's looking so vibrant and beautiful - you'll be done with it soon for sure!

well done ... i have to admit i don't have strong self restraint and just start new projects. have to have a massive box for the started ones. while the new buys i keep stashing out of sight in draws and shelves, between books etc. i'm dreading my rent coming out of my bank, or what worse there not being enough for it. i wander if there is a cross stitchers anonymous group. good luck in the next month.
