Welcome and WIPocalypse

Hi all,

Welcome to my blog!
I have been cross stitching for several years (9? I think?) off-and-on, and now that I am in graduate school (and on summer break!) have finally devoted some real, consistent time to stitching.
I have stitched several small/medium items for gifts in past years, and am currently working on the two largest projects I have tackled (and the first I have worked on for myself!), "Quiet Time" (HAED - Butcher), and "Aurora Cabin" (Dimensions). I am also working on "Checking His List Stocking" (Dimensions) as a gift for my BF (sshhh! ( : )

In addition to cross stitching, I enjoy reading, writing, playing the piano and playing with the queen of my apartment, my cat Little One.

I'm new to the blogosphere, so please forgive my fumbling as my technologically-challenged self figures this out!

Through the HAED forum, I came across a link to the WIPocalypse SAL, hosted by Measi:

I realize I am a bit late to the game here, but I figure this type of challenge will help me complete my yearly stitching goals as well as keep me from procrastinating over blog entries.

Here is my list of 2014 goals:

Current WIPs:
"Aurora Cabin" (Dimensions) - finish
"Checking His List Stocking" (Dimensions) - finish
"Quiet Time" (HAED) - finish 4 out of 25 pages

New Starts:

Nativity Ornaments (4 - Kooler Design Studio) - finish
"Napping Kitten" (Dimensions) - finish
"The Wave" (Dimensions) -start (any amount!)

This might be a little too ambitious, because once August comes around I will be quite busy with school again, but here's hoping I can get the bulk of this done! Looking forward to getting to know all of you fellow stitchers!
