Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

So, after completely missing last month’s WIPocalypse post, it swings back around again.

The question this month: Are you more productive with stitching in Summer or the Winter?

Umm, I have no idea. I’ll have a look at finishes and things in a moment, but first of all, a guess.Ā  I think I’m more crafty in general in the Summer, because I’m a student, and in the Winter I like knitting because it can keep you warm… maybe?

What does my history of stitching actually look like?

Summer stitching

Stained Glass, tetris shapes (September totally counts as Summer, right?), flower fairy card x2, half the butterfly.

Winter stitching

Butterfly outline, love is, friends were flowers card, roses card, Christmas cards, coaster Christmas presents.

I didn’t include the OUAT sampler, because that was mostly worked as soon as it came out, so about the same in Summer and Winter. So, this basically told me what I already suspected- the weather doesn’t really affect how much I work on things. Maybe if I went back further, I would be able to spot more of a difference, but I think this is enough analysis.

So, onto the interesting part… what work has been done in the last two months?

Well, I haven’t done any on Stained Glass. I pulled it out a few times, but couldn’t be bothered to actually do any work on it *sigh*.

I did make my dad a birthday card

graduationBut that’s really been it :/ Instead I’ve been busy knitting, and writing up a tutorial for knitting socks, which took wayy longer than I thought it would! I take my hat off to those who do it regularly!

See you all next time, I guess!

  1. I think I tend to cross stitch more in the winter and knit/crochet in the summer…kinda backwards I guess!

  2. You’re getting a lot done, even if it isn’t all cross stitch–it all counts!

    • Yes, but the WIPocalypse post is just about the cross stiching šŸ™‚ As long as I’m busy and having fun, they’re the most important things šŸ™‚

  3. I’m a periodic stitcher. I sometimes like to cross stitch during the summer, and especially to make ornaments leading up to the Christmas season.

  4. I understand about not getting much done. I got very little done myself. Your cards are very cute. I can’t wait to see the graduation card completed. It looks great so far! So festive and colorful.
