April WIPocalypse update

Well, I'm running late this month, but better late than never, I guess.  First off, I have another happy dance this month!  Well, two actually.  I also finished the baby sampler, but I can't post a pic because I put the baby's full name on it.  I did post a picture last month of everything except the words.

So, my big finish this month is Irish Toast by Cross My Heart.

This is an old WIP too.  I checked my stitching journals, and it was started in 2003!  Ironically, I started this piece after I stitched this pattern for my grandmother, because I wanted one of my own.  Well, I got the original piece back last year after my grandmother died.  But that one was stitched on white Aida, and this fabric is much nicer, so I decided to finish and keep this one.

As for the rest of my WIPs, I worked on a bunch of stuff again.  I continued working on Joan Elliott's Phoenix.

Also, the two SanMans, Sewing jars and the monthly cupcake stand.

I finally got the dress done (and legs and face) on New Year's Fairy!

I'm working on another baby project.  This goes into a tuck pillow.  The design is exclusive to a needlework store nearby.

And I pulled out another old WIP that I had forgotten, Lily of the Valley Sampler by Drawn Thread.

I also started something new, because I just don't have enough to work on.  :-P

This is Happy Easter by Hinzeit.  I got the pattern and frame in a grab bag.  :-)

Last, but not least, a friend inspired me to dig out Peacock Tapestry and work on it again.  I'm working down in the grassy area very very very slowly.  *l*

And that's it for another month!
