First WIPocalypse for 2013!

So, here we go! We may have survived the last apocalypse, but we continue with this =) If you would like to join, just head over to Measi’s place and sign up!
There are themes for all the dates this year, but I am not sure if I will pay much attention to all of them because I have a small plan about what to work on and it doesn’t always fit the months theme. But I will try to include something theme-related.

Idea for January is to give a small overview on your projects and your goals for this year ๐Ÿ˜‰
I fear I did so two weeks ago ;-D Therefore I am not doing this again ๐Ÿ˜‰

As for introducing myself… I could update my “About” page one day… mhm…. I’m 22 by now, still studying maths and still living in Germany. I’m by now living in a bigger place with my boyfriend. More room means more room for stitchy stuff, for example


Yay, it’s finally complete and here and wonderful and everything! I picked it up from my parent’s house yesterday and set it up in the evening. I already did a bit of stitching on it and it’s wonderful =) It has such a good tension (well not on the photo, I’m losing the tensions when I stop working, I think it’s better for the fabric), much better than my qsnaps. And I can finally stitch with a straight back and without holding up the frame all the time.
And I want to pronounce that there’s Aurora Cabin on it! Hah, I’m truly working on it!

But it will soon have to make room for Kreimhild, because a week has gone by, so I am switching from Theatre to Kreimhild.
In the end I managed some 900 stitches on QS Theatre:


The page is 98 stitches high and I think I will stitch the last 8 rows when the page beneath it is released. I don’t want to cut all the threads and I don’t know where to park them when I stitch the whole column. So I will leave the last 8 rows unstitched, so I can park my threads there. Any other suggestions?
As for the design itself, I must say that it is very confetti heavy, but it turn’s out beautifully =)
This one has Kreinik in it and I’m not using the very fine braid. I did so on Storykeeper and hated every stitch. Besides I think Kreinik would be to thick because I’m stitching with one thread. So I ordered a bunch of shiny thread a while ago to try different things. I’m using Kreinik blending filament and it is much better than Very fine braid. Just two stitches so far, but very lovely =)

So I am off to look at all the wonderful WIPocalypse updates now =)
I will post again next weekend, it’s Yota time then!

Happy stitching =)

    It is so nice to see other young stitchers out there. I am 24 and find that in a lot of groups I participate in, I am significantly younger.
    I am jealous that you live in Germany. It is one of the places I most want to visit.
    Your projects look good so far! Can’t wait to see more of your progress reports.

    Great projects. Look forward to seeing your progress. Thank you for your comment on my blog. Mini Ariadne has about 19 large format pages. I think most of my other Mini’s have the same amount. Thank you for your question.
