I started Susannah Walker, 1848 by Modern Folk Embroidery on Christmas Day and I have worked on it almost every day since. Here's my progress thus far:

The less said about 2020's goals the better. Let's just pretend that whole year didn't happen.
I am joining WIPocalypse 2021 which is a blog hop and the brain child of Measi's Musings. This is the second time I'm participating and I love the idea of keeping track of the progress on my WIPs and following along with everyone else's progress.
I am Amy. I live on the East End of Long Island, New York. I learned to stitch as a teenager but stopped stitching during graduate school and when my children were little. In 2015 I picked up a kit on Amazon and later discovered the vast array of amazing designers and new fabrics and floss. I've been stitching non-stop ever since.
I am participating in WIPGO 2021 on Facebook. You can find all the information about it on Jessie Marie Does Stuff on Youtube. Essentially one constructs a BINGO board out of WIPs or new starts and determines a goal for each square. I intend to work 10 hours on each project called. I feel that this is a reachable goal.

Squares 1 through 6 are new starts. My plan is to start a new ornament every other month so that I'll have them by the time we put up the Christmas tree. I will work on the ornaments below and from the Just Cross Stitch 2020 Christmas Ornament magazine.
Square 7: Herbularius by Chatelaine
Square 8: Halloween Fairy by Nora Corbett
Square 9: Christmas by Renato Parolin
Square 10: Hanukkah Table Topper by Dutch Treat Design
And I left the final square, 25, to work on any new start or WIP.

Hands Across the Sea Samplers
Hariet Hartland is so lovely in real life. The cover photos on the patterns really don't do them justice. It's been a joy to stitch. I have finished page 1 and most of page 2 except for the text. I am planning on changing the text although I'm not sure what I'll choose which will leave me with an awful lot of over one stitching at the end.

Our WIPocalypse question of the month: In honor of “Leap Year,” tell the story of a time you had to make some sort of a “leap” in stitching – taking the chance on a new style of stitching, attending a meetup or class, etc.

I had a new start this week. Hariet Hartland, 1782 by Hands Across the Sea Samplers. I am stitching on 40 count cream linen by Zweigart with the called for threads, Au Ver à Soie d'Alger.

I am Amy. I live on the East End of Long Island in New York. I learned to stitch as a teenager but stopped stitching during graduate school and when my children were little. In 2015 I picked up a kit on Amazon and later discovered the vast array of amazing designers and new fabrics and floss. I've been stitching non-stop ever since.
I've picked 8 WIPs and 3 new starts that I'd like to focus on this year.
1. Herbularius is one of my oldest WIPs. It requires that I'm not too tired in order to work on it. My goal for 2020 is to work a minimum of 4 hours per week. It will be the first piece I work on during the week to guarantee that I make that goal. I also bought some scroll rod fabric tensioners to help with the side tension making it more pleasurable to work on.

|Halloween Fairy by Nora Corbet 1.09.20|
|Christmas Tree by Renato Parolin 1.09.20|
|Spring Robin by Mill Hill 1.09.20|
6. My goal is to make significant progress on Antique Celtic Sampler by Elizabeth's Needlework Designs.

8. I would like to finish Blue Jeans and Daisies by Blue Ribbon Designs. I did start this but I'm not home and I don't have a picture with me. I'll add it as soon as possible.

10. I will start HL's Moth by Kathy Barrick in 2020. I have a gorgeous wine color fabric for this. I think it's called Napa and was hand-dyed by Silkweaver.
