Whine and WIPs Week Two and Miss Valentine

For the last week, I've been working on my second project for the Whine and WIPs SAL in Stitch Maynia, Butterfly Rose Cross from HAED.

I've been working one hour a day on the piece each day before I do any other stitching. This is where I started back on July 8th:

And here is where I ended up seven hours of work later:

There is A LOT of blue in this piece, but I was able to finish one shade (3768) before moving onto the next most prevalent color I had left on this page (161). I really think that the next time this piece comes up, if I work hard, I might be able to have a page finish, which would be exciting! I will be starting another Whine and WIPs piece today and will share what a week of working on it will bring next week!

I also worked on Miss Valentine by Mirabilia yesterday:

Here is where I stopped with her yesterday:

Lots and lots of pink! I'm doing her on 28 Jobelan in Amour from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie using the called for Crescent Colorworks flosses. I just love her so far, even if all we have at this moment is a skirt with lots of holes in it! Ha!

Until next time!


  1. Beautiful work on both pieces. You got a lot done in a week. Great job.

  2. Awesome progress on both pieces Katy.


  3. Great progress, Katy! It's hard to work in only one color; I have a couple of WIPs like that.

  4. Lots of stitches in, well done:)

  5. Wow, that's excellent progress! Great job :D
