I'm only a week late for the WIPocalypse, But I had a busy weekend last week so this is as close as it gets.
The November question is How did you begin stitching?
This is a two part answer, first, I went to Micheals with some friends one day, and one of the group was a stitcher, so off we went to the stitching section where I saw the kit for Magnificent Wizard and fell in love, mind you it was around $60 and I had no knowledge of the craft and I'm not insane, so I just admired and forgot about it. Fast forward a few years and I'm in a job with a lot of free time, I was bringing puzzle books to work on, but one of my co-workers brought knitting and I thought doing a craft at work was a great idea. At the time I did a lot of painting, which wasn't really that portable, or practical for a photo lab. I remembered that amazing pattern, but was smart enough not to start there, but still I went and bought a " How to Cross Stitch" kit and never looked back, I did eventually get to do my wonderful Wizard too.
It's November now which means I'll be going nuts doing ornaments for the next couple months. Already got one finished, a lovely little Mill Hill kit.
But I haven't left behind Fractal, I'm partway through page 10 now
As for what I watched
