WIPacolypse March

This month’s WIPocolpyse question its (and look I’m even on time, possibly early)

 Do you use hoops, stretcher bars, lap stands or Q snap frames and why? 

I use hoops, I have small hands and the Q-snaps feel ackward in them and stitch curled up in a sofa so anything larger just won’t  sit well. I do own a couple scroll frames and they work nicely to display things at fall fair time, but they just don’t work for me as a stitching tool.

I’ve had three more ornament finishes as my lovely new charms arrived, so here is July, August and September.

And the unfinished October and start of November.

Also, look, an actual Mulan update as I managed to put in a couple movies in the non curling watching week,

I am almost finished Duck and Friends just the backstitching and name to go, will get the name and actual date of the kid on Easter when I see his grandmother.

As for what I watched.

Critical Role


Charmed S01 E5-8

Women’s World Curling Championships.

The Westminster Dog Show, part 1 - Will get to part 2 after the curling, figure skating and curling.

Die Hard 2: Die Harder - Not as good as the original but still a solid action movie

Divergent - Rather handy that this came up alphabetically just when the new movie came out.  Still love this. And it introduced me to the books which quickly became a personal favorite,


  1. I seriously love what you have been doing with the ornament patterns! they look so amazing when done on the black! Your Mulan start looks promising and the fabric colour is perfect! The animal stitch is cute!

  2. Oh, such pretty stitching from you! I love what you are doing with the ornaments, and that birthsampler is cute, but Mulan is the most stunning thing ever, can't wait to see more on this :)

  3. Hi Nancy, so nice WIPs! Happy stitching!
