June 2015 WIPocalypse.

Well here I am with June WIPocalypse. I feel like I am catching up with all my posts again.

I finally finished the Hearts I was doing.

I also finished the EMS September Aster.
I am proud to say after 6 long years I finally finished all the 12 flowers. Who knew it would take me 6 years. 

Here are all of them together.

I also started this LAP SAL as part of Stitch May Nia. The main rules were to start 15 new projects from May 1 to May 15. Some people did for the whole month. I did for two weeks and did both new and old wips.

Glendon Place SAL Red Velvet Cake start. They are very easy to stitch incase anyone wants to do a Glendon Place chart. 

This was for a Specialty Stitches SAL.

This is called Shadow quilting and part of Patchwork. I am doing it for the Specialty Stitches sal.

I started this again for the Butterfly SAL called Monarch Butterfly by Kustom Krafts.

AAN 2015 Xmas SAL started.

I started the Clouds Factory SAL. Its just some Gold sparkle.

I started this for Father's Day. Frosted Pumpkin Penpals. Eventually I will turn it into a quilt. I am doing these stamp size for my dad who loved stamps. I couldnt have a better dad than him.

I started this for Design Works Kit SAL and managed to do it for another Joan Elliot SAL.

Halloween SAL from last year by AAN.

More progress on April 2007 Ink Circles.

Thats it for the month of May. 

Lots of new starts and more progress on WIPs.

Question for June

Do you find yourself more productive with stitching in summer or winter?

Definitely winter. In summer the heat is soo bad my asthma is always at a bad stage. I cant stitch so much with all that coughing.
I get a lot done in winter with the lovely cool climate.

May 2015 WIPocalypse.

Late again with the May WIPocalypse update. Have been sick and the weather is not helping things. Its too warm here to stitch.

Lets see what I managed to do.

I finished EMS August Gladiolus.

I had more progress on my EMS September Aster,but couldnt finish it.

I finished the EMS October Calendula though.

I started an Ink Circles freebie from 2007 April for  a SAL.

I finished EMS November Chrysanthemums also.

Finally I started work on my exhibition work. I started it on the local new year day 14th April. My theme is Japan. My main picture is Geisha by Joan Elliot from a UK magazine.

Here is the start.

EMS December Poinsettia also got finished.

I started this small quickie Hearts by Gloria and Pat for a sal. I thought I would be over in less than an hour. Who knew it would take me a month to finish it!!

This is the Randje introduction.

I started this Blue Rose for the Mother's SAL.My mum loves the colour blue.

I also have started a new kind of embroidery called Totsuka. It is Japanese. Here is what it looks like. These are just the stitches.

More progress on HAED QS Hearth of Gold.

More progress on Heart Note Alley.

I started this Dimensions kit Geisha Beauty for a SAL.

This is the start of a SAL called BAP SAL.

I truly am taking part in too many SALS. Suddenly I find myself with less finishes and more new projects..sigh.

The question this time was :-

I would like to know if you look for LNS’s when you travel. What is the favorite shop you’ve ever found?

Yes I definitely do.  I have travelled a lot, but I found my favourite LNS are in Singapore. There are so many LNS there and the ladies are so wonderful. They have a lot of everything. You name it, they have it.
