Welcome, welcome - it's the tenth edition of WIPocalypse, and for me personally, it's the eighth time taking part. It's still one of my favourite SALs, as it is so low stress and low effort, and everyone can just make it fit their own style of stitching and posting! The usual signin is at the end of the month but as usual, January gets an extra post as in introduction, so here we go - slightly updated from last year (and the year before that, and before that...):
Hi, I'm Leonore, I'm 31 years old and from Southern Germany. I life together with my husband, and my extended family includes my grandma, who lives nearby and with whom I still spend a lot of time. In real life I'm a computer scientist working towards my PhD, which makes me travel around the world from time to time (although thanks to the pandemic, it's been a while...). I love cross stitch, knitting and crochet, and I'm also trying to learn how to sew. I also like to try out new crafts and have a few things lined up, we'll see if I can get to them this year! My other hobbies include reading and videogames, and I like to watch movies and shows while I craft.
As for focus projects, I got several planned this year. I still need to fully finish the Zoe box for a wedding present in April (hopefully, considering the current situation!), I started my a House Rules project in November (update on that soon-ish) that needs to be finishes asap for a house warming gift, and after that I'm going to start a Wrendale for my bestie's mum's birthday in July. After that I have another, as-of-yet secret project lines up, but still need to finalize the details. Nothing as massive as Lady Justice or The Mermaid last year, but plenty of fun stitching to do!
