WIPocalypse #2

Boy has the past month ever flew by. I completely forgot about the WIPocalypse challenge and working on my stitching after the first little rush I had at the first of last month. I did work a little bit on something I'm stitching for a friend, but I can't post it on here because I'm not sure if she'll read this or not. So, instead I'll post my teeny tiny progress in other areas for the month.

I got a whopping 3 hours work done on Fairy Moon. LMAO. I normally wouldn't even bother taking a picture of it, but I needed to be able to post something, so here's Moony at 78 hours.

Fairy Moon - 78 hours

I also managed to dig out a few smalls I did in 2007 and FINALLY got them framed. I did these for my two girls when they were tiny. They're bigger now, but they still love them. My oldest and I always read the book "Guess How Much I Love You" in which the final line is "I love you to the moon and back", and this became our key phrase for many years to tell the other that we loved them. So when I saw the "I Love You To The Moon" kit from Waxing Moon Designs, I HAD to have it! I got it off eBay and stitched it up quickly.

My youngest and I read this book as well and said the same things, but when it was time to do one for her I saw the "You're My Sunshine" kit from Waxing Moon Designs it was perfect. My youngest daughter had a thing for the song You Are My Sunshine. My Mother-in-Law sang it to her every time she saw her and Littlest DD always referred to it as her "special Nanny song". It was such a special song for her that at one point, I wasn't even allowed to sing it to her, only Nanny could. lol

So, after only 4-5 years of sitting in the finished container, I managed to get them framed for the girls. Here they are.

You Are My Sunshine and Love You To The Moon

Hopefully next month I'll be able to post a little more visible progress, but for now Happy Stitching!

Your Fairy Moon is really beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your framed finishes and the story behind them. It really touched me because I did the Moon one for my DD. My DGD says that when a particular song comes on the itouch that they are playing Grammy's song.

Wow! I can't imagine the effort required to make that! Well done! Thanks for visiting Corner of Main. PS-we totally do the Christmas pickle also, we have one regular and one with a hula skirt from Hawaii. It's fun! Usually my husband hides it and I find it.

I found it difficult to stitch this month too. But progress is progress!

BTW, I've tagged you in my blog. ;p

I love the fairy moon. I wished I could do things like that, but my bad eyes will not let me. Again it is just beautiful.
