April WIPocalypse Report

The full moon is here and the World is coming to an end so its time to kill those WIPs!  Here's my progress report for what I've worked on in the last moon cycle.

I have been VERY good and I have worked on The Accolade every day.  Each day before I've picked up my focus project, I've completed a 10x10 area on The Accolade.  This BAP has been moving along nicely since I've started doing this religiously.

 The Accolade - March

 The Accolade - April

Since my last report I've started working away at Ink Circles Winter Mandala.  The filling in is taking longer than I thought it would.  I honestly thought I would fly with this piece once all the black was stitched.  For some reason I'm having trouble "getting into" this project.  For some reason the colours came out very faded in this picture.

Seasonal Mandalas - Winter

I've also puttered with Spring as well, putting in the odd thread length of black outlining.

Seasonal Mandalas - Spring

I had a Happy Dance today!  This project was one of my January 15.  I had been carrying it around as my travel project and suddenly had the urge to get this one out of my stitching bag/purse!

Congratulations on your finishes. Great idea of doing the block on your HAED before sitting down with your focus piece - I'll have to keep that one in mind.

Isn't it funny how sometimes we think we're going to love a project and it ends up just being something in our WIPs that we really don't want to work on? I have had lots of those!

Right now, there is one project I am committed to finishing that I am not enjoying at all! I'm probably half done and hope to finish it in April.

Love your finishes and the Accolade is beautiful!

WOW! You did a TON of stitching this past month! What a great feeling that has to be!! Even though you aren't into your Ink Circles Mandala, I think it is turning out so nice. I've been through those slumps and fought my way out of them! Accolade is beautiful! I love your idea of finishing a 10x10 block each day!
