WIPocalypse Update for 14 February 2014

With today being a full moon, plus it is Valentine’s Day — I suspect that my day at work has the potential to be strange.  Should be fun!

I am making nice progress with the bakelite phone needlepoint.  It is a great companion while watching the Olympics since the entire piece is half-cross (some details to be added in backstitch).

The topic for WIPocalypse with this post is:
How many projects do you generally feel comfortable having in progress at a time?  Tell us about your one-at-a-time or rotation habits!

Over the years, I have always had multiple projects in progress — that is still true, some are WIP’s and some are UFO’s but they are all in progress and I have no plan to count them.   I stitch as the spirit moves me.   I usually have at least one quilt, one or two needlepoint and one or two cross stitch projects out and staring at me.  At the moment, I am trying to stay focused on just a couple projects at a time so I can have a finish or two.

I know many stitchers follow a rotation and switch projects based on time, theme, or number of stitches.  I tried following a structured rotation for almost a year — but it seemed like I didn’t get enough time on anything and it started feeling like a “job” and not much fun.

An option to a rotation is joining one (or more) of the various SAL’s on-line.  Seeing all the different works in progress is definitely inspiring.
