It's time for another Wipocalypse report. I had a fairly sucessful month. I managed to finish two WIPs from last year.

and Forget-Me-Not © 2013 With thy Needle and Thread
I am still plugging along on the Beary Merry Christmas (Dimensions Kit). I have finished the 2nd bear (outside of the backstitching) and have started on the 3rd.
Oh, before I forget I did finish the final snowman in Becky Boo's "Let it Snow" © 2002 A Stitcher's Hands.
Tonight I will be working on a WIP(UFO) from 2012 - Snowflake © 2007 Little House Needleworks. I figure with all the snow we have been getting lately, I might as well go with flow and stitch my own little winter scene. This is how far I got in 2012.
Now onto this month's topic - How many projects do you generally feel comfortable having in progress at a time?
Wellllllllllllllllllllllllllll, if you are a follower of this blog you will know that I very rarely stitch on one piece at a time. Usually I am working on at least 3 or 4 projects at the same time. At least one will be a medium or large piece and rest will be ornament sized. When I first started stitching I was a one at a time stitcher but then I discover the internet and had access to all the wonderful designs that were available. There was so much out there that I wanted to stitch and I just couldn't limit myself to stitching just one piece until it was finished. Unfortunately, that has left me with an ever growing list of WIPs/UFOs. But I love the stitching and I know that I will finish them one day. I have managed to clear off 4 from my list already this year.
The way I rotate through my current projects is a little different than most that I have read about. What I normally do is take a one length of floss for a project and work on the project until that length is used up or until I no longer need the colour in the section I am working on. I then move on to the next project and do the same thing. I have tried assigning certain days for certain projects and rotating through them that way but it never really work for me. I got too antsy because I wanted to work on the other projects also. Sometimes when I am nearly finished a project, I will work on it exclusively until it is finished.
Well that's it for now. Take care and happy stitching!!!!
THANK YOU FOR VISITING!!!!
