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.
