November WIPocalypse

WIPocalypse for November: the question is What pattern (or designer) is on your must-try-to-stitch bucket list?
I think the designer that I most want to do next is Ursula Michaels designs, those pretty word pictures.  Me being me though  I have this vague plan of changing all the words, but not the design to make them suitable to give as gifts to the Critical Role stars, cause that’s fun, but  this would be a very long project and  who knows how long the show will run.  Maybe at least one for Marisha as she seems to love embroidery,

 I’m really enjoying this whole do small projects till the end of the year thing, though I don’t know if I’ll actually last that long. I am itching to start the fractal.
I finished the ornament for the secret Santa at work, much earlier than last year when I started after the names were given and it came out so pretty

Now onto a tiny penguin for a card
I’ll have pics up of the owl next journals

As for what I watched.
Critical Role:

Attack on Titan E06-25  What a great show, this is all Netflix has, don’t know if there is more or not., but I loved it.

Gilmore Girls S02 E06 - S03 E13  So I’ve been bingeing this one lately, it
took me a while to get into it, but I’m going great now

The Great British Bake Off - I have no idea which season, the Knowledge Network just throws random seasons at us,  but Mom and I love this show, not the greatest to stitch to as I like to watch the techniques used

Doctor Strange - Marvel’s consistency continues, this one was fun

As promised, I decided to do a few small things before starting my next BAP.  Given the time of year it should come as no surprise that I'm making ornaments.  First up, a little Dala horse.
Approx 4"x 4" on 14ct perforated paper
Three floss colours and 5 bead colours
Started designing October 26th, not sure when I started actually stitching it. Finished November 3rd
I made this one for an entry into the Stitching Pirates Tiny Toys contest, as I judge I can't win, but it's fun to participate. When  I decided to "enter" the contest, these little horses came to mind, with a Swedish Father they are all around the house and I played with them when I was a kid, so I went looking for patterns, there are quite a few and I liked none of them, so I made my own.  Dad has already claimed this one and asked when I will do a blue one to go with it.

As for what I watched - it will return next blog
