The question of the month was What newer designers and product creators (fabric or floss dyeing, etc) out there have you discovered and recommend?As many others whose posts I read, I've been trying to limit my spending and new starts, so I didn't work on a lot of 'new' projects. Going through my finishes, though, there is at least one new-to-me designer I 'discovered' since this topic came up last, and thats Maria Brovko who's CutePatternsByMaria on Etsy. I stitched one of her freebies last summer and not only is it totally cute, the patterns are also of very nice quality!
Now for the WIPocalypse update, I usually share my three ongoing SALs, so here we go - you've already seen the March Mamluk, but those last few days, I also stitched the Blackwork SAL, and finished March on my Temperature SAL:
March also saw the 'Stitch a Day' challenge. I was working on my Mermaid until the day we left for Japan, and for traveling, I brought Charming, on which I worked every day of our vacation (so, I good deal longer than just March). Here are the two now:
So, nice progress considering how long I was away for, I guess! Now I just need to get back into the swing of things, and most importantly, of finishing things. With the gift starts I had recently (and one additional start that doesn't quite fit in here, but that I'll show soon), I am up to 50 WIPs...yes, I went from -2 to +1! Shameful! I'll be doing my best to get back down, but with just 9 days left to the next WIPocalypse, I'm not sure I'll manage before then.
I love the temperature SAL!
Wonderful progress on everything. I've recently found Maria's patterns and have added quite a few to my stash.
Great work on the daily progress pieces. I clicked over to your "new" designer and saw she is the Ocean in the Bottle designer made famous by our Katie!
Great progress! Charming's eyes are simply adorable! :)
Thank you. She has sooo many wonderful patterns, I hope to stitch a few of them soon.
