Today I stumbled upon Measi's 2012 WIPocalypse stitching challenge, and decided to jump on.
Because incentives to stitch, and to blog, are always helpful.
In short, the challenge is to post stitching status and progress pics on every full moon in 2012, starting on 9 January.
Things I plan to work on in 2012:
MarBek - Nativity (which I plan on restarting on 27 November - 1st Sunday in Advent)
Chatelaine - Convent Herbal Garden (already started)
Teresa Wentzler - Needle Guardian
Needle Delight Originals - Amethyst (canvaswork)
There will probably be a couple of other counted canvas pieces in there. Not sure which of the many counted-thread pieces I have kitted will also make it on there, but I don't have to engrave the list in stone :)
But what about Passione Ricamo's "Once Upon a Time", you ask? Well, I hope to have that finished by Thanksgiving weekend. I'm at 177 hours, and coming down the home stretch.

Also, since I've been bitten by the counted canvas bug, I just finished From Nancy's Needle's "Autumn Leaves" this past weekend.
What have I been up to besides stitching? I've started going to Curves again, and lost 4.5 inches this past month. I've also stepped up to coach DD's Odyssey of the Mind team, which is out of my normal 'box', but is certainly a growth opportunity for me. So if my stitching progress seems slow, it's because there's only one of me.
