Do you remember this picture from a couple weeks ago? It is now under this somewhere . The press has dubbed the storm Snowzilla. It is very hard to tell how much we've had as it is blowing and drifting. See that opening in the upper left of the picture? That's where the driveway heads down to the road. A few minutes before I took the picture, you couldn't see it because of the blowing snow. Just north of here and into Washington, DC and Maryland are in the main path of the snow and wind with upwards of 2' of snow predicted. Now for those of you in the snowier climes, please give us all a break as we don't have the equipment to deal with a storm of this size, so we'll be slower to recover than you would. I suspect I will be working from home Monday and Tuesday, but the road crews may surprise me and get to my road before then.
But you came to read abut (and yes, I am a day early). WIPocalypse has been hosted since 2012 by Melissa at Measi's Musings. The link for 2016 hasn't been set up but I don't believe anything will have changed from last year. No real rules, other than sign-up anytime, make a list of what you would like to make progress on (adjust as necessary through the year) and post about it on the full moon (or thereabouts). Very low stress. My WIPocalypse list is posted up top in the tab titled, "WIPocalypse Project List and 2016 Stitching Plan". I do have to work one more project into my rotation as I told The Hubs that I would have Secret Victorian Garden finished in time to enter into the state fair this year. So far my stitching plan seems to be working. I put another 200 stitches into Its About Time:
Speaking of finishes - I have my first of the year.
On the frame for today and tomorrow is Just Nan's Christmas Soldiers
There is a bit of backstitching and beading to be done for this section to be finished and I should have that done this afternoon, then on to the body of the stocking.
If you're still working on your stitching plans for the year, check out the Joyful World SAL at The Snowflower Diaries. I am saving the patterns but have, so far, fought the urge to start this very cute piece.
