Carole's 2013 & 2014 WIPs

by Carole » Tue Jan 01, 2013 6:52 pm

2013
As I've got several projects planned and kitted up for this year, and most of them are small-ish, I thought I'd keep them all in one thread, just to be tidy. I'm going to attempt to do some sort of rotation this year. How well that'll go is anyone's guess but I do have 'A Plan'.

I've got two new starts for January. I'm planning to stitch on this one during the first week of each month until it's finished, and then I'll replace it with another new start. I've been looking forward to starting this for ages and I'm doing it as a SAL with the same friend that I did the Cottages with. LHN are doing a series of book covers. This is the first and we're planning on stitching all of them. Can't wait to see which book is done next.

Image

This is my other new start and will be worked on during the second week of each month. My friend stitched it last year and I fell in love with it so she sent me the chart once she'd finished with it, along with her left over threads. All I had to supply was a couple of colours of threads plus the fabric. I'm using a lovely vintage Cashel for it.

Image

Week three will be for working on UFOs and week four is for the Papillon SAL. Once I've finished that month's Papillon, I can stitch whatever I please until the 1st of the month, when I start back on the rotation.

Wonder how long it'll be before I deviate from that...

Beautiful designs! I'm excited to see you stitch them, although a book cover series could be dangerous temptation for me... :lol:

:applesauce: What lovely projects you will be doing. I wonder how many books there are in the series. Your rotation sounds like a very reasonable one and I hope it works out for you. Lots of variety for sure. Looking forward to your updates.

What interesting projects! And great idea to at least start with "a plan". I would only stick to it until it gets annoying. :D

Fabulous idea Carole and :shamrock: that it works out better than you hope.

Going to be very interesting watching these new ones being done. :applesauce: :applesauce:

Sounds like a great plan to me. I'm sorely tempted myself by the book covers! :wub:

I didn't get as much done on my week one WIP as I wanted due to a particularly vile migraine but at least I've made a start.

This is my favourite bit so far.
