June WIPocalypse

Heyheyhey! I actually made it, caught up with blog posts and posting the WIPocalypse in time. June was a bit of a catchup month for me, as I was behind with SALs and finishing and blogging but now I feel like I'm in a good place again. I have about another week or so of reading to catch up on, but I will get there!

The question of the month is Half-year recap: How are you doing with your goals so far this year? Well, my official goal for the year was to work on rotations of ten hours, and to get my WIP list down by ten. The first part is going well, and I still really enjoy it. The second part...not so much, technically. I'm at 50 WIPs, so one up from the 49 I started with. But then I had three big finishes this year so far - Lady Justice, The Mermaid, and Viajante - and that's pretty nice. I also feel like the WIP front might be clearing up a little soon, but I don't want to jinx it by talking about it too much :D So yeah, I'm okay with my progress so far.
Now let's move on to pictures...well, one picture, actually. My monthly WIPocalypse project is The Loneliness of Autumn, which I am SALin with Rachel the Ten Hour Stitcher. She fell a little behind in May, but has made good progress, and I'm excited to see if she's managed to catch up by now (which I will find out soon enough as I'm making good progress with my blog reading!) I have succeeded iin stitching one length a day for the whole month again, so I'm at a total of 77:44h right now and it looks like this:

I finished the right side of the design now and worked my way down along the left. There is a huge, triangular-ish shape left and then of course the bench, which (for some reason) I am particularly excited about! Let's talk statistics: 14.178 stitches/11.93% in, and just 2.492 left in this colour. I think me prediction of finishin in July might hold, but probably pretty late in the month. I did buy the next colour already, though, so I am prepared in any case!

That looks amazing! I love seeing how it's coming together, both at yours and Rachel's blogs. you sound like me, always needing to catch up on the blog posts. :) Stay well!

That's fab! It's hard to believe you're so close to finishing your first colour and that the whole thing is more than 10% finished. And what is it about the bench? It's not exactly 'cute' or anything but I felt the same excitement stitching it. Weird! Good luck for your next rotation; I can't wait to see the emergence of the second colour! :)

Great work on Autumn, it's fun seeing both these pieces growing.
