WIPocalypse January 2012

I've been stitching on Janlynn's Spring Sampler since the start of the year.  I remember now why this is a WIP.  There are so many color changes.  It is a really cute design, but I have a feeling that it is going to take some time to actually get this done.

Here is the way it looked when I started it on the first of the year:

Here is how the Spring Sampler looks as I finished work on it for now:

Progress wasn't too bad, but I think I'm going to work on some other projects until February's post to make myself feel like I'm actually accomplishing something.

I can see why this one may be difficult. You have really made some good progress on it. Will you keep with it or move onto other projects from your list? Nice work.

You have made some really good progress on this since the first of the year! You are right, there are a lot of color changes, lol. But, it will be worth it in the end!!! :)

oh pretty and nice progress. Yes a lot of color changes can be bothersome. One reason why I haven't gotten out my really big project yet.

Looks like you have made quite a bit of progress!

I started mine in the center & am working a large section of off-white above the Irish girl - not too many color changes in that area (thank goodness!).

Kris said...

Cheryl,

That probably would have been a better idea, but I've always liked starting in the lower left corner.

Good luck when you get to the bottom.

This is really pretty - I hadn't seen it before, though it does look like it has a lot of color changes.
