Teresa's Five WIPS

Today is the day to show you Teresa's WIPS.  The first thing you need to know about my buddy T is that she loves to organize her stash.  She has a great Excel spreadsheet listing everything she has.  She is also getting ready for a move, so at first she did not have the energy to go through all of her stash to pick out some WIPs, but then I guess we inspired her because she showed up at the WIP reveal day with a list.  You have got to have lists and rules people!  First of all, and not pictured here, is her WIP, which is also known as a BAP (big ass project), Red Deer Sampler.  As you have seen, this is a group SAL and she is working on it with Karin, Brenda, Pat and Linda. 

So, as you can see, T broke her stitching down into categories.  First up is the BAP to work on all year long.  Then she has an over 1 project, a monthly project, a medium sized project and a small project.  She is playing by her own rules!  Love it!  And she will stick to it and get some stuff done!
 In the medium sized category is this lovely piece by BBD, A Merry Heart.  I am sure this is OOP so don't get too excited about it people.  It is completely lovely and cool though isn't it???
One of our rules for WIPs was that you could have it kitted up and not started....Here are the fibers and fabrics Teresa will use.  Gorgeous!!!
 Here is Teresa's current monthly project...it is the new series by Hands on Design, the chalk series. 
 This is such an innovative and timely design!  Love it!
In the small category is this USA Crock design.  I know Teresa is already working on this one!  She started it the day of our WIP reveal.
And in the stitching over one category is this future masterpiece......the Serenity Harbor Sampler by By The Bay Needleart.  I almost caved in and joined this SAL, but then I looked through my stash and I have so many projects that I love that I have not touched.....but this is very tempting!!!!!  When I see it done I know I will faint!
As we go along throughout the year I intend to show progress pics on everyone's work.  This is so exciting!!!!!!!!  Also, today is Friday and I am so excited to have some extended stitching time this weekend......let's all stitch our guts out!!!!

Another group of great projects! That she can pull all this out of the hat, so to speak, while managing her move speaks to organization!

What a great list (add me to the list maker group) that Teresa has created. I look forward to seeing progress on them.

Enjoy your weekend and fire up your needle!

Oooo, I'm having project envy-- but I must get through some of my piles (and piles and piles)... though I don't have your fortitude -- I caved in the face of the Serenity Harbor SAL :)

Maybe I need to get that organized. Nah! I am going to stitch my guts our now. ;)

Such fun seeing what others are planning to stitch all year! I did a list of my own, but... there are others for other lists... and ones that aren't on a list yet... Oh shoot! I would rather stitch my guts out with Vickie! Hugs!

Always great to see you post. I've started to kit projects I want to work on; got that idea from this blog. Trying to finish Christmas Tree Farm by Prairie Schooler so that I can start Spring Hare by La-D-Da and have it done by spring.
