WIPocalypse February - with a twist!

February has come around really fast! It seems like 2 minutes since we were all ringing in the new year!

For my WIPocalypose post there is a slight twist! Nothing is ever simple with me!

My first pic - Avarice. Here she is as she stands after the last IHSW and a bit more besides:

Getting there with her - slowly but surely. I have largely put her down for now.. further explanation down the post!

Pic 2 - an actual finish! I found this kit and I had done a few stitches so I decided to finish it and add it to my WIPocalypse:

A vary sweet small alphabet sampler with ducks and a lovely rose topiary.

My 3rd.. a progress pic. I picked this up having done the black and white on it but he looks less gloomy now!

I love Eeyore. Who dosen't??

My last pic is my twist... I decided to downgrade my stash so  this month I made a massive effort sorting out stuff for ebay and I have (so far) this much... after putting 15 items on ebay already here is what's left to do:

Kits, a frame that I no longer use, chartbooks. embellishments., charms.. all that stuff. Need the funds as we discovered a few urgent jobs to be done around the house.

So there you have it. While I haven't been stitchy stitchy I have been WIPocalypsing... I see a good old clearout as a completion of a task I have been wanting to do and just not got around to it. I have been gridding fabric for a friend too as I can do that almost without thinking about it!

Happy Stitching everyone!
