March WIPocalypse

Well...I'm not saying this is the latest WIPocalypse post ever, but it might well be! It just doesn't feel right to let all these posts fall through, so you'll have to suffer through them this weekend. Sorry!

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.
