WIPocalypse SAL January, 2015

With the full moon upon us, it's time for my first WIPocalypse SAL check in.
This is the second of three SALs that I have joined in an effort to "get er done" in 2015.
WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi of Measi's Musings and has been for the past three years.
I'm working on two WIPs at the moment with more on the way !

I started the Little Sweeper, a Weekenders kit, at Christmas
and she's coming along nicely. This is how she appeared at New Years

and today's progress.
(my apologies again for the blurred pic, my camera and my unsteady hands are forces working against me)

The other piece I had been stitching on is 
Windowsill Birdhouses designed by Martha Edwards for Dimensions.

After sitting for too many years I picked this up again about 6 weeks ago but I stopped stitching once more, I'm not sure why. No doubt being anxious to start on The Alchemist, I suppose.
 I'll be placing some stitches over the next couple of weeks.

This design has full and half stitches, which can be a pain at times.
To join the WIPocalypse SAL click on the button in my sidebar and check it out! 
You never know, you may find that little umpf you need to get those WIPs out and finished in 2015!
All in all, not too shabby in the progress department, if I do say so myself!
My WIP list will grow as I start
 Nancy Turner's  "Two Long-Eared Rabbits Poem",
 "Always Remember" and "Decorating the Tree"
as well as
"Out For A Ride" Designed by Diane Arthurs
"Rosewood Colorful Butterfly" designed by Karen Kluba
"Woodland St.Nick" designed by Sandi Gore Evans
