WIPocalypse 2015 - April Edition

It's time for this month's WIPocalypse report! This month, Measi is asking us the following question:

Which specialty stitches do you love doing on projects? Which do you dread?

Tough question! I will say dread came to mind first - I am not a fan at all of doing french knots. I cringe when they're part of the pattern, especially if it's done in metallic threads or silks. I'm slowly moving into a habit of replacing french knots with beads. I'm also not a fan of the backstitching process because it can seem endless, but I adore what backstitching does to a piece. That's probably not  a specialty stitch, but oh well!

I don't have a favorite "specialty stitch" I like doing on projects, but I am definitely a fan of beading, which I suppose could count.

Here are the nitty gritty details for my WIPocalypse Report for April 2015

  10. Wow, lot of progress going on here. I have a question about "Flames of Desire", and maybe you answered such a question, do you find it difficult to stitch on alike fabric to your thread?

  11. I can't imagine having as many WIPs as you do. They are all so beautiful. That being said I am sitting here with three different charts trying to decide which I want to start in order to have something small to work on in front of the TV at night. My only other projects are too complicated.
