Preparing for February/March SAT

In preparation for the upcoming February/March "Month Long Stitchathon" over at Cross Stitch Crazy on Yuku, I went through my basket of WIPs (Works in Progress).  Ultimately, I decided to work on Celtic Spring and Celtic Winter during the stitchathon because they give me the best opportunity for big blocks of the same color, which will allow me to get the most stitching done in the least amount of time.  However, I thought I would list the rest of my WIPs in here, hoping you all will shame me into finishing some of them this year:

Lavender & Lace
  • Celtic Spring (just started)
  • Celtic Summer (almost done)
  • Celtic Autumn (just started)
  • Celtic Winter (approx 25% done)
  • Celtic Christmas (about 10-15% done)
  • Sweet Dreams (about 75% done)
Passione Ricamo
  • Under the Arbor of Love (about 10-15% done)
  • Mother's Arms (about 50% done)
  • Seashell Round Robin (various artists - almost done)
  • L*K Seasons Round Robin (almost done)
  • Happy Everything by True Colors (about 50% done)

January Check In Post

Oh my, I was certain that I already wrote up a January check in post and published it, but I do not see it here, so starting again...

Hello, fellow WIPocalypse Stitchers, and anyone else who's following along as we continue from the 2012 WIPocalypse Challenge into the 2013 WIPocalypse Challenge!  I have been working on L&L's "Sweet Dreams" off and on for years now, and my main goal this year is to finish her up.  Below is my most recent update photo.  Even though she looks close to being done, I have very little stitching time in my life because of work and school (full time on both accounts), so it may well be the end of 2013 before she's done.  But I *WILL* finish her!

That being said, the ladies over at "Cross Stitch Crazy" on Yuku are having a month long stitchathon that goes from February 10th until March 10th (I believe, those dates might be slightly off.)  In order to get the most stitching done in that time, I am setting aside "Sweet Dreams" just for the stitchathon and will be working on another of my WIPs, preferably one that has a lot of blocks of color to be filled in, since that results in the most stitches in the least amount of time for me.  On my next post, I will update which one I chose to work on.  See y'all soon!
