WIP Wednesday – Happily Everafter SAL & Spring Seasonal Quilt

Gosh, it’s been two weeks since I’ve posted anything! My how time can get away from you, especially when illness and injuries are involved. Things started 2 weeks ago with a mild sinus irritation, that lead to some type of bug, then allergy season began, and this past weekend was a pretty bad flare up of my chronic back injury. Thankfully, I am feeling better and have started to get back into my normal routines again. The only good part about all the sickness and stuff, was that I spent a lot of time sitting on my heating pad and stitching! So today I have two updates to share, progress on my Happily Ever After SAL and my Spring Seasonal Quilt.

Happily Ever After SAL

In my previous WIP Wednesday post, I shared how much I am enjoying the Happily Ever After SAL from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. This still remains true. It seems I just can’t put this one down. As much as I love having a rotation this year, to switch off projects so that I don’t get stagnate with my stitching; this one is just hard to put down. Last I shared, I was working on the January pattern, The Owl & The Pussycat.
Here is my progress as of Wednesday February 22:

Here is my progress as of this Sunday when I switched projects:

January & February are finished!!! I couldn’t be happier having completed the January & February patterns. Moving forward, because I do want to rotate my projects to make progress on those as well, I think I am going to work on 2 months at a time. So that means, I won’t pick this up again until April, and at that time I will attempt to get March & April’s patterns finished before switching off, and so on.

Spring Seasonal Quilt

Even though I have a few other projects in my rotation that I haven’t worked on this year yet, I decided to return to my Spring Seasonal Quilt. In North Carolina, spring is getting ready to make an appearance, if not already having begun, and I was in a ‘springy’ mood. Also, another stitcher shared her progress (much further along than I) on the same piece on Facebook and I am anxious to see more progress on my own. Although, I am glad that I chose to stitch the Seasonal Quilts on linen, I am not that experienced with linen, and the counting has thrown me off a few times, so this project will take a bit more time.
Here is my starting point this week:

Here is my progress as of today:

Slow but steady, I love the colors so far, and am happy with my color choice for the hand dyed linen. Check in with me on Sunday and we will see how much further I get!
Thanks for reading and happy stitching.

  1. Well I’m sorry that you have been sick and sore these past two weeks, I’ve kind of come with a cold too it was the worst that’s week but it has gotten better. I love your progress on both of you pieces of work, though I am sad that you won’t be working on the happily ever after piece till April. I don’t think I would be able to rotate my projects very well, I always work on whatever I am in the mood for. Happy stitching though 😁❤️

    1. I’ve only started doing the rotation this year, I used to just work on one project until it was finished, but I would find I got a little bored with the project and I wouldn’t stitch for a while. Since Stitching is my therapy, I’m trying the rotation technique to encourage myself with different project options. Hope you feel better!

      1. Oh I see that’s a good idea. I find that stitching or knitting is my therapy too. I like when I have a day off and have the place all to myself and can watch Netflix while I knit or cross stitch., it really relaxes me and clears my head for everything going on. And thank you, I hope I get better too. 😊❤️
