WIPocalypse - January 2012

Tonight we have a full moon and snow here in Virginia. I was hoping to miss this wonderful trick of Mother Nature before heading to Florida but no no here is a little bit of snow. But that is OK I really don't mind snow I just don't like the cold anymore.

Here is Herbie, still on part 2 but getting closer to starting the beading.

 At the Stitch In on the 3rd I worked on Pot 4 Dickie, I am working on band 6.
The last one I have worked on the last week and a half is Noah's Needle by Just Nan, the stitching is done and I am doing the beads this week. You can just see the beading needle by the parrot on the left side. I feel like I am using a spear since I normally stitch with a petite size 28 needle now, but I needed the beading needles since the beads in this Just Nan are the smallest beads I have ever used before. 
I am really please to get the piece finished and yea for the 2012 WIPocalypse I don't think I would have gotten (almost) this finished without this SAL.



Happy Stitching everyone and I can't wait to check out all the progress everyone is making on their WIP's.

I love your bands in black

Great progress. Yeah, Just Nan does use some small beads doesn't she? They look great but are not the easiest to work with.

Herbie and Pot 4Dickie are amazing as usual, I haven't seen Noah's Needle before I likie.

You've got some lovely charts on the go. Pot 4 Dickie looks really nice with all the black in there
