WIPS in my Workbasket

Wips in my workbasket & Whiskey

I like to have more than one project on the go at the same time. I don’t have a schedule for stitching, I just work on whatever strikes my fancy, although I try to keep up with the stitch-alongs. These are the works-in-progress currently hanging out in my workbasket.

You can see two new bands added to the Dentelles / Lacework sampler. The fifth band has a space where we could add our initials or a date if we wished. Don’t forget to pop over to Broduese Bressane’s Blogspot to check out the rest of the group’s progress in the stitch-along.

I have NOT kept up with the Save the Stitches Stitch-along, but I will finish it eventually 🙂 It’s a gorgeous design of blackwork fill patterns. You can see a photo gallery on Liz Almond’s webpage, Blackwork Journey. She has a new blackwork stitch-along starting next month, that I’m looking forward to starting – Box of Delights.

Soon to be added to my workbasket is my new design which features a dog or two 🙂  It’s still in the graphing stage, but I hope to start stitching soon.

I’m definitely happiest when my workbasket is full of WIPS – what about you? Do you like to stitch one pattern at a time, or do you have several going at once?

  • I love looking at all your projects. I generally have a couple of projects going at one time, usually one very large one and probably one smaller one. Then another one works it’s way in because of a special occasion coming up for which I am going to make a gift. So the gift usually takes precedence because it has a deadline.

    • Yes, gifts always take precedence for me too – Christmas time is always busy and sometimes it’s hard to meet deadlines. I’m trying to start my Christmas stitching earlier in the year nowadays 🙂

  • I have several projects going at once – I could never just work on one at a time. I have what I jokingly call “stichers ADD” because I get bored with part of one and go on to another. It keeps me going though.

  • Hi Storm, have just found your blog and love it 🙂 . Please can i ask what thread/colour are you using for the Save the Stitches, its beautiful. Bee x

    • Hi Bee, Welcome! And thank you for visiting 🙂 The floss for Save the Stitches is called Bradley’s Balloons, by Threadworx. It’s one of my favorite threads!

  • i love your save the stitches version… i have been wanting to do this pattern but wasn’t to keen on the black with the gold and silver. did you still use the metallic threads and beads?

    • My apologies, I’ve only just now seen this comment! I did use metallic threads for save the stitches, but did not use any beads. I’ve seen this design stitched in so many gorgeous colour combinations!
