Linda's WIPocalypse 2013 Update #1

I'm surprised that I have an update for this SAL.  I worked on nothing but starts in November and December.  Even though I have been starting a new project every day this month, I did manage to work on a few UFO's.

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas - Prairie Schooler - This is a Sunday SAL with Debbie and Kaye.

Treat - Lizzie Kate Boo Club - This is a SAL with Debbie, Lesleyanne and Angela.  Debbie and I started these a year ago and never touched them again.  The goal is to stitch one a month.  The other girls are doing this on one piece of fabric.  I am stitching mine separately.

Halloween House - Ursula Michael - This is a Friday SAL with several other ladies.  You can see are weekly progress on the Halloween House SAL page at the top of my blog.  I'd like to welcome Carrie to our SAL group.  There are still a few of us working on this and one person has finished.

Autumn Alphabet - Lizzie Kate - This is a Turtle Trot SAL piece.

Singing the Blues - Little House Needleworks - This is a Monday SAL with Debbie

Father Christmas - Holiday Time kit - This is for the Ornament a Month SAL.


Thanks for looking.  Linda

Linda's TUSAL Update #1

I was so excited when I found that clear plastic ornament at Walmart last December.  I thought it was just a weird shaped something.  Its a snowman.   I just put all of last years orts in it and its only half full.
This years, so far, in the really big jar.  I must have had high hopes when I bought  it cause it didn't get very full.  Better luck to me this year.

Hi Blogger Friends.  Thank you all for the wonderful comments on my last post,  Organized Chaos.  Anytime any of you want to go shopping, come on over.   I'm always home and your more than welcome.  So far, I've managed a new start everyday this year.  Here they are.

Day 1 -  I'll Get My Elves on That - (Santa '09) - Lizzie Kate

Day 3 -  Stash - Poppy Kreations

Day 4 -  Forever February Sampler - Amy Bruecken

Somebody talked me into a massive amount of SAL's this year.  (you know who you are) lol  So here is our list.  Anybody want to join us.

2013 Ornament SAL:  Stitch an ornament each month for any holiday.  Post a picture on your blog on the last Wednesday of the month.  Leave a link to your blog post on the Stitching Lotus blog.

Turtle Trot SAL:  Choose 13 UFOs/WIPs and post progress photos on your blog by the 13th of each month.  Leave a link to your blog post on the BAP-Attack blog.

WIPocalypse 2013:  Make a list of all your WIPs to finish before the apocalypse in 2012 (this didn't happen so the end of the world has been extended indefinitely).  Post progress photos on your blog on the Full Moon of each month.  Leave a link to your blog post on Measi's Musings blog.

TUSAL:  For this Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long, save all your ORTs (old ratty threads) in a jar and post a picture on your blog on the New Moon of each month.  Leave a link to your blog post on Daffycat's blog.

Ultimate Crazy January Challenge:  Start a new project each day for the first 15 days in January or 31 days (for the Ultimate version) and try to complete them during the year.  Sign up on the Crazy January Challenge Yahoo Group.

Halloween House SAL:  Ten of us started stitching Halloween House by Ursula Michael in January 2012 and the plan is to stitch on it every Friday.  Only one person has finished it so far.  I haven't stitched on this one in a looong time.

Prairie Schooler SAL:  This is a SAL with Debbie and Rosemary of the Spring & Fall and Summer & Winter charts.  There are 12 monthly designs and the plan is to stitch on them every Saturday.  I started 4 and finished 1.

Santa's 12 Days of Christmas SAL:  This is a SAL with Debbie and Kaye of the Prairie Schooler designs for Santa's 12 Days of Christmas.  There are 3 booklets for Days 1-4, Days 5-8, and Days 9-12.  The plan is to stitch on them every Sunday.  I have finished 2 and almost done with day 3.

Boo! Club SAL:  Debbie and I have joined a SAL with Lesleyanne and Angela of the Lizzie Kate Boo! Club series.  Angela is stitching Halloween Rules.  The goal is to finish one design per month and there are 12 designs.


Oh my, I sure hope someones reminds when and where and what I'm suppose to be doing.  My poor old brain can't remember all these.  Heck I'm surprised I remember to get up in the morning.
