WiP Wednesday - Oh the Handstitching edition

Have I mentioned the three birthdays coming up for important people in my life?
I'm sure I have.

It's absolutely overtaking my sewing time. Late starts and all that.

And my brilliance picked an epic cross stitch for one of them.
I'm thinking that one won't get done. Unless I do nothing else for the next two weeks.



Full Shot


No explanation needed

I refuse to be afraid of this pattern anymore. 
Although I'd still place bets on me screwing it up somewhere along the way. 


Present M: No pic cause it's hanging out in the corner of my desk again. It needs borders and then I can finish it.

WWC beginning

Finished a tester block for size and then cut out the rest of the pieces.

Sailor Mouth Swap:

SMS progress

Extreme close-up shot!
Started some knots. And figured out an extra item to send.

Present A: 


At least it's starting to look like something. Too bad it's part 1 of 9.


Medallion Progress

I had every intention of getting all the piecing for the top done. But I'm out of white solid. Which isn't surprising considering I hardly ever use it so I think I only had 1/2 yard on hand to begin with.

Tetris QAL: 

Tetris QAL - Block 5

No Progress:
Bottled Rainbows

Coming Soon:
Hush Bella
Mario QAL

Finishes: 1
New: 1
WiPs: 8

Strangely I woke up this morning thinking that I'd really have nothing to report for WiP Weds. this week.

Rather odd to feel so unproductive and yet see that I've gotten a decent bit done.
The productivity is just spread out over a ton of projects.

Next week probably won't be that way seeing as how I should start focusing on knocking out presents.
