Taking a New Inventory of WIPs

Have to take a new look at what on earth I'm doing with my WIPs! I've been off the rails all summer with personal issues, and my stitching has really suffered for it. So, now I'm just going to take the opportunity to think aloud:

What I have closest to me on my chaise, thus blocking all personal contact:
1) Neighborhood RR - Wendy's piece
2) HAED RR - Jan & Lyns
3) Chatelaine Designs - Taj Mahal
4) Fair & Square - Monique

WIPs blocking anyone from getting near me on the rest of the sectional sofa:
1) Mermaid of the Pearls - for my daughter, Jessica
2) CHS - Houses of Hawks...
3) Chatelaine Designs - Convent Herbal Garden
4) Chatelaine Designs - White Nights of St. Petersburg
5) Colonial Coverlet Sampler Set
6) GPA - Nautical Journey (Sanibel Island)

On the floor frame in rotation, blocking my stitching room door:
1) And They Sinned
2) Matisse - Woman in the Red Room - Needlepoint

Stitched, waiting to be finished:
1) Pumpkin Bloosom - mailart for Aniza
2) Elizabethan biscornu
3) Chatelaine Designs - Mystery tryout needleroll

Bearly started and dying to work on:
1) Ackworth School - Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler
2) Cirque des Cercles

Nearly finished, and needing attention:
1) Hester's Needle - (Sampler for my DH....) "Alone With You"

Things I really want to start but am afraid will just get lost in my WIPs:
1) GPA - Queen of the Fairies
2) French Names Sampler (Custom made by Elegant Stitch years ago~!)
3) A Merry Cox stitching tools piece
4) A Whitmans Sampler stitching smalls for the tins
5) A Brightneedle "girly" pieces as seen below
6) Some Prairie Schooler santas
7) Blackbird Designs anything!
8) Playful Day Necessaire
9) Feed My Soul in Stitches

I love your list, Deb. Your description sounds true to form for so many of us stitchers, who end up with multiple projects strewn about our favorite stitching areas. I straighten up my stitching area regularly, but it never stays that way for long. Sounds as though you have a wonderful collection of projects in progress!!

Wow, that's an incredible inventory. Thanks for the link on your prior post ;)

Oh, what a list, Deb, and thanks for sharing this. I know now that I'm not alone :o) You might want to add another one on your list: Atelier Imaginaire is starting a new year long freebie mystery sampler in September!
And you're working on the Convent Herbal Garden??? That's the only Chatelaine I really, really want to stitch myself!

Von said...

What a fun post about all your wips and their locations, Deb. :) So many stitchers have a list at least as long, and longer! It seems they take on a life of their own and cannot be controlled. :D

Currently my list is shorter than yours, but time will take care of that!

Sally said...

Wow that is a lot of WIPs Deb! How do you keep track of them all?!

Myrna said...

What a great list of WIP! I usually work on the one that's yelling the loudest...

Hello, I just found your blog, and I, too, do LOTS of crafts (and recently posted my own list over on my LJ blog, CraftyGryphon. It's the same here on BlogSpot, CraftyGryphon, but that's "just" for knitting.

I look forward to seeing all your projects!

Lauren said...

Oh, you're keeping busy, huh? :) You have so many beautiful designs in there!

How is stitching on the chaise? We just ordered a new sectional sofa for the house, and I've already let my fiance know that the chaise is mine!
