WIPocalypse and TUSAL

Lots to share today.  First,  I am a couple of days late on my TUSAL.

Sorry for the mess on the table.  We are beginning potty training and you can see the little Cars potty in the background.  It really is adorable.  Anywho, still lots of greens in the jar.  I have determined that it must be my favorite color.  I can't help myself when I see it and all of my stitching seems to be in that color.

As for my current WIPs, I finally finished the pin keep stitching and just need to get it made up.  I will attempt to do it this week-end.  I was also able to get the second "Sisters" I was stitching done.  I have "Daughters" in the works, but I didn't like the pic.  All of my pics are really dark.

I will take a better pic of "Hello Spring" tomorrow.  The little pink dots are beads.  I didn't have buttons small enough for the pattern, and the beads add a bit of sparkle.  As for the materials, I used the recommended fabric and the DMC alternatives.  Same for "Sisters".

As for Halloween Rules, I did start over and only got through the pumpkin, BUT, what can I say?  I am loving (did I mention loving) the WDW and CC threads.  Its makes such a big difference.  The piece is going to be homey and I just can't wait to stitch more.  I will also try to get a better pic up on Friday.  I just can't seem to get the lighting in my house right, and the flash just destroys all of the color.

I have to say that the organized rotation has done a lot for my stress over working multiple projects.  I don't feel guilty and I am able to keep from getting bored.  So happy right now. ;)

I also recently came upon the WIPocalypse and decided its a must.  I would feel terrible not having all of my WIPs done (especially since my up for a challenge pieces are still in the works).  If you would like to join, just click on here.  Its sounds like loads of fun.

Well folks, that's it for today.  Keep those needles sharp and the frogs away.

Lovely stitching Joy, I can see your love of green from your TUSAL jar ~ it seems to be a colour that suits every time of the year so why not!
Good luck with the potty training, brings back memories for me with my twins, I think we had just one with an elephant on so it was fingers crossed that they both didn't need it at the same time !!!
Enjoy the weekend

What a cute pumpkin! I find I get the best colour match using the scanner for my WIPS, saves digging the camera out too!
