WIP Wednesday

It was March 12 last year when I decided I wanted to start a new blog series called Work In Progress Wednesday. Since I posted that introductory post, I haven’t written another WIP post. I found out I was pregnant the next day so I was a little distracted to say the least. I kind of lost my cross stitching mojo last year. It was terrible and I knew I would regret it once the baby came along. It’s very hard to cross stitch with a baby around. However, I am managing to get a few stitches in here and there. It will become increasingly harder once baby can grab things! Pointy needles and thread that can choke do not agree with infants!!


I mentioned that I was working on a Stargate one in that first WIP post. I’ve done a little bit of progress on it, but not too much. I love it because it is all full cross stitches. However, there is a lot of confetti stitches (one stitch and then not another of the same colour for awhile) and so I have put it down for a bit.

Stargate SG-1 pattern

Lion King:

I stopped working on this Lion King one because it had so many 1/4 and 3/4 stitches and they were driving me bonkers. I might pick it up again soon because it’s SO pretty.



I spent exactly one night on this one. I thought I wanted to do it, but then decided I didn’t. Haha, so fickle. It is another one that is all full cross stitches so I might take another stab at it.


Maple Leaves:

This is the one I’m working on currently. It’s an easy easy one. I just wanted to step away from the HUGE projects and do a “fluff” project. Haha.

    Oh wow I love your projects!!! The Lion King one has to be my favourite one though. Even though I love Stargate too 😉

    The Stargate, Lion King, and Merlin ones look really detailed! The Lion King one is so pretty, and it looks like you have some good progress on both that and the maple leaves 🙂 Looking forward to seeing them finished!
