YOTA & July WIPocalypse

The Great Ragnarok Cleanup continues. I had family over for Independence Day yesterday, so things moved a little bit faster this year than last. The house is now functional again and I'm hoping to spend some time during the rest of the month taking care of some dejunking and organizing projects that are is desperate need of attention. 

True to my plan, I've stuck to only a few projects so far this month. Most notably, I've made it as far as I can on Butterfly Profusion. I am short in two colors of thread, the green for the leaves and the yellow for the last of the final butterfly wing.

I've submitted a request to Dimensions for the missing threads, and in the meantime, I'll move onto the other projects on my list.

I've worked on my Nano Novel four out of five days so far. It isn't coming along quickly, but it is coming along. I am currently sitting pretty at 2064 words. Smiles!

Linking up to YOTA@Pulltheotherthread and WIPocalypse@Measi'sMusings.

As for the WIPocalypse Question: "Reality or Fantasy. Which do you prefer to stitch? Figures or Abstract? "

I prefer fantasy, as I'm sure you can tell from my current projects and my stash. I also seem to prefer figures, although I do dearly love Aimee Stewart's scenery art, such as The Jade Gates, Journey's End, Foxglove Ball, and The Magic Grotto. If the Jade Gates is ever made into a cross stitch pattern, it will be the next one I purchase. Number One on my wishlist right now is Guardian Angel by LA Williams.

 I'm waiting to buy it until I request a larger size. Right now it is being sold as 400 X 280 stitches and super sized, and I would really prefer to stitch it somewhere in between.


  1. Wow, love the butterflies. I've always been a sucker for them. I love Aimee Stewart as well, just started World Travel by her and am almost done with the first page I'm working on.

  2. Wonderful progress on Butterflies and your novel!

  3. Butterflies looks beautiful, it's going to be a lovely finish. I prefer fantasy too.

  4. Wow great progress on your butterfly
    Such a pretty piece :)
