Old wips worked on for this reporting cycle:
Martina Weber's Egyptian Mandala:
This piece is so slow going, so labor intensive that it doesn't give much of a sense of progress even after you spend hours working on it. I would love to have this more than halfway finished by the end of the year. I hold no illusions about actually finishing it this year.
Ink Circles: Croakworth:
I reported on this in more detail previously. I stopped at over half way because I could not make up my mind about combining this piece with the companion piece Quackworth. I cut the cloth to put the two on top of one another, combining them into a longer piece.
But now, I am changing my mind. I don't have the heart to cut that much cloth off the piece but I will have to. I want the 2 of them stitched then framed separately. I will feel better about it when I find something else to put on the cloth trimmed off.
In catching up on some of my blog reading on other stitchers I am reminded of some more old WIPS of mine which haven't seen progress for ages but look so wonderful as other stitchers work on theirs. Maybe my old huge Prairie Schooler ABC blocks can come out to play for the next update. It has 4 foot scroll rods. I will need some vacation days, I think.
Or maybe just more work on Egyptian. There is always more work to be done on Egyptian.
