So I participated in Mirabilia March although I didn’t really find any bulletin boards to talk with others about Mirabilia pieces. It seems like Facebook is where everyone hangs out instead of the boards any more. Anyway the head of my Queen got part of a body this month.
I also did some travelling and I took a small piece with me so Black Swan’s Fire and Ice got some love.
The next piece on the WIPocalypse schedule is to warp my loom. However, I seem to have misplaced the pattern so while I’m looking for it, I put TW’s Winter Carousel Horse back up on the stitching stand. I’m really close to finishing it and it’s next month’s piece so maybe I’ll just swap them.

So I’ve been making good progress on some of my older large pieces and realizing that if I finish the easy pieces this year, I will be left with ten pieces started and six of those will be Teresa Wentzler’s designs. Since last year was the year of the 40 ct linen Carousel Horses where much progress was made but nothing was completed and that my Queens are on 36 count silk linen – I’m thinking that the follow up to the WIPocalypse is Seasonal pieces. This gives me an excuse to finish kitting up Summer and Winter Mirabilia Queens. I’m planning on finishing up Winter Horse during his stint in the WIPocalypse and he may jump ahead and be this month instead of Warping my loom. But then again, I could warp the loom in an afternoon and then work on my Winter Pony. He only has about 50 hours and then he’ll be finished.
This means if I worked on seasonal things next year, I could put Winter Queen in the Winter spot and then alternate between ponies and Queens in the other seasons.
Then again there is the 2 year long SAL for Stars for a New Millenium. I still haven’t bought the pattern but it goes on 20% off in July and the SAL doesn’t start until November.
So why am I even worrying about 2013 when 2012 isn’t over? Things could change and there’s no guarantee if I’ll have stitching time or where things will be after all, doesn’t the world end in December?
