As you can see, I have added links to current progress photos for the ones I have available. I’m taking pictures as I pull them out.

I have two finishes to report already! Nora Corbett’s The Sunflower Fairy and Chatelaine Designs’ A Tiny Rose Mandala Garden. To be fair, The Sunflower Fairy was nearly complete.

Here are the before and after pics:

The Sunflower Fairy, as of December 28, 2011:

Completed January 2, 2012:

She will be dropped off tomorrow night for framing.

A Tiny Rose Mandala Garden, as of January 3, 2012:

Completed January 7, 2012:

This one will also be dropped off tomorrow night for framing.

Now I have moved on to a very small piece – Just Nan’s Over the Top Grow! tin topper. I needed something that I could work in hand, as working on a stand for several hours every night for a week hurt my shoulders. I suspect my momentum will slow down a bit, as I really have some other hobbies and personal work that I have completely ignored since the beginning of the holidays! 😆

So, there you have it! I need to remember to take a picture of the current WIP today, before I get too far along, so that I can show my progress next month. I suspect I may have this one finished by then and have moved on to a bigger piece. Those I will have to rotate between so that I don’t get too bored and stop making progress on the WIPocalypse in general.

    Ok…so Leslie should not have more than one tab open at a time with blogs to comment on:) Feel free to delete my previous comment, Jenna. Congrats on finishing you Sunflower Fairy. I love the Valdani colors she used, although I must say from using it on other pieces I am still not a huge fan of the threads. I found they tangled a lot. How do you like them?

    Good start to your finishing. Sunflower Fairy is awesome.

    Terrific progress! Beautiful stitching!

  4. Hey, finishes are a great way to start 2012, congratulations!

    She’s a lovely fairy, very warm colors, I like it! And anyone who can finish a Chatelaine of any size has something to crow about, IMO. 🙂

  5. Beth says:

    Those tow finishes are beautiful. I can’t get over how much you did on the Mandala – it is amazing. I will enjoy watching your progresses!

  6. Very pretty. I think I Have that fairy design somewhere.
