WIPocalypse 8, #2

A little late on the WIPocalypse post. Also, I'm going to cheat because the only project that has changed since the last WIPocalypse is College, so that's the only one I'm going to post. Sorry, guys! I probably shouldn't even be doing this right now since I have so much schoolwork, but I'm a little tired of being responsible at this moment in time so I'm DOING IT. HA - take that, school.

College before WIPocalypse:


Last WIPocalypse:


Last Update:


Now:


I feel like I managed to get a lot done in 10 hours! Which reminds me, I realize it is absolutely impossible for me to finish this by Christmas. So I'm going back to 10 hour rotations, with the difference that College will be the focus piece, so that every hour rotation I'll go back to it. I'm going to admit, I got a little sick of it.

My last bit of news is that I got a birthday package from my sister the other day. Wanna see? I think you do:


Glorious, isn't it? I have an ALMOST complete set, just missing a few. I wind them on bobbins during my lectures. Multi-tasking achievement, ahoy!

Have a great day, everyone! I wish you all more stitching time than I've had lately.

Its always so nice when people give you gifts that they know you are going to love.

The progress pictures are fun to look at, I think the popcorn nature of what you're stitching makes for an interesting effect.
Lovely gift from your sister.

Melinda said...

What an awesome gift. Extra special, as you know it was purchased with great thought, just for you.

Your progress on College looks wonderful, really a lot for just 10 hours of stitching ;-)
I hope you will finde more time for stitching in the next weeks again, school can sometimes really eat up your life ;-)
