August WIPocolypse Update

It's time for another WIPocolypse update! I can't say that my needles have been flying but I do have a finish to report!

The stitching on Summer Snapperland is complete! I still need to attach the snaps and buttons but I don't like to do that until I'm ready for the final finish finishing. I really love the beachy feel to this one, and I'm super happy to have it done! I have other Snapperlands in my stash so this should encourage me to get started on them.

Next up is Joyful Summer from CCN...

I was really hoping to get the blue flower at the top finished but last night I decided I didn't like the looks of the top petal and decided to rip part of it out and restitch it. I ended up with a huge mess when the eye of my needle broke and got stuck under some stitches. After a glass of wine and some Jane Austen I was able to set things to right. I thought all was well and I'd get that last petal done today but now I notice there's a counting error somewhere and I'm going to have to do some fancy fudging. Autumn is just around the corner so this one might get tossed back in the WIP box if it doesn't start behaving!

I am woefully behind on my blog reading and commenting but hopefully over the long holiday weekend I will find some time to play catch up.

Thanks for stopping by!
