WIPocalypse 2013

After admiring the progress of others over the past year, I decided to sign up myself! WIPocalypse is a Stitch Along (SAL). You basically set your goals and try your hardest to complete them. Once a month on the full moon you post your progress. So without further ado, here's where I'm at and where I want to be:

A Walk Through The Highlands - I would like to be completely finished with this by the end of February, and at my current rate, I should hit my goal.

A Summer Ball - This will be a harder finish, but I want it done by the end of the year.

35th Anniversary Celebration - Another end of the year finish (hopefully), and well past due considering Disney World had their 40th Anniversary last year!

Now on to the "plan to start" projects:

Sleepy Hollow Mural
Sleepy Hollow Mural - It's been hard enough not starting this already, but I would like to finish A Walk Through The Highlands First before I start another HAED.

QS angel in lilac
My first HAED Quick Stitch: Angel In Lilac - I absolutely love Jasmine Beckett-Griffith's work now and I have several of the JBG HAED's to do. Considering this is a Quick Stitch, hopefully it will go much faster (although the detail level isn't near as good as a full version).

Tanglewood - I've had this for quite a while, but watching someone else's progress got me in the mood to start again. I also would like to complete this one by the end of the year. This will also be my first real project on non-evenweave linen (I don't count The Ribbon Topiary).

Last but certainly not least, Abigail Patecleaver - My first attempt at actually stitching my own design. It's incredibly large with about 200 colors, so it's gonna be the hardest thing I've ever done. If I don't start the stretching portraits soon though, I'll be long dead before I ever get to finish them. Hopefully since Abigail is my favorite Stretching Portrait, it will help me work on it more, now Alexander Nitrokoff will be an entirely different story!

Oh, and there is one project (which I can't post a picture of because it's a gift for someone) that I will be finishing this year as well.

And that's it, my WIPocalypse goals for 2013!
