WIPocalypse 2016


Check ins: January – February – March – AprilMayJuneJulyAugustSeptemberOctoberNovember – December

This is my first year, having just discovered WIPocalypse hosted by Measi. I found it via the Stitching Pirates. I’ll be updating it as I go. These are gonna be the standard project list/goal/progress monitoring.

Currently, I plan to update the Progress image every time I post a Stitching Sundays update! This may prove too much, so I may ultimately end up just doing it every so often or linking to the pictures. We’ll see!

In Progress



1.   Tale as Old as Time (Mucha Belle)

Pattern by Ashley Mae | Artwork by Hannah-Alexander.

I am aiming to finish this by December! Hopefully this will go faster so I can start other patterns in this set. Set of 6 by the way (so far). It’ll be loads of fun as it’s my largest project (so far) and the first one with beading.

Counted Cross Stitch Kit by Dimensions — Progress as of January 29, 2016

I haven’t touched this one in almost a year, but I’m hoping it’s still complete. I’ll let you know, but I actually wanna visit this again and work on it some more! I’ll probably start on it again after I finish Aurora. I’m not entirely sure I can handle more than two projects at a time.

Pattern: Dimensions
Original Artwork: Chris Cummings
Size: 288 x 160 Stitches
Colors: 31 Solid Colors | 5 Blended Colors | 1 Cross over Color

5. Temperature Blanket

This will be a crochet project. I’ll be doing 2 rows a day starting February 1st choosing the color based on what the temperature is at the time I start stitching. It’ll be fun to see everything come together! I look forward to seeing the final project as I like the colors more or less that I picked. I don’t know how long I’ll be working on this, but expect pictures to come over time. Probably about once a month with check ins.

Pattern: Ripple (obtained from an old pattern book I have)
Size: 52″ x 70″ (hopefully)
Colors: 8 Colors

Start Date: 2/1/16

Progress as of April 22, 2016

6. Pinkie Promise

Character by Hasbro | Pattern by Scootybeth

I’ve been sitting on this pattern for a long, long time. A few years in fact. I stitched four of the characters in this series and have two left. I cannot find the artist again, she seems to have closed her shops. Which is too bad, because these patterns are pretty great. I consider this one a small and will hopefully knock this out in April. The Rainbow Dash Pattern only took me 10 days, and I was still learning cross stitch. So I am hopeful to get this finished in a week.

Start Date: Unknown

Pattern: Scootybeth
Artwork: Based on characters by Hasbro
Size: 158 x 103 Stitches
Colors: 15 Solid Colors
Stitching 2 over 1 on 18 count Aida (white)

7. Fluttercheer

Character by Hasbro | Pattern by Scootybeth

The last in the My Little Pony series I got from Scootybeth years, and years ago… Once this is wrapped up I’ll have all the Mane 6 done and then… I don’t know. I’ll find some Pokemon or something. Anyway, another smaller pattern I hope to knock out in a week in April.

Start Date: Whenever Pinkie Promise is completed.

Pattern: Scootybeth
Artwork: Based on characters by Hasbro
Size: 162 x 106 Stitches
Colors: 17 Solid Colors
Stitching 2 over 1 on 18 count Aida (white)

8. Chibi Chocobo

Possibly something I am gonna enter in Stitching Pirates’ Gamer’s Delight contest. This will have to get done before May 1st. But it’s a small pattern, so it can be done. No preview picture yet, but I’ll see if I can find it.

Start Date: February 29, 2016

Pattern: Awenmir/get it here
Artwork: Awenmir
Size: 80 x 89 Stitches
