Random Afternoon Question

It's only Wednesday afternoon stateside and we are at 56 Hermitters for this weekend already! How awesome!!! I am giddy with anticipation, first of all to be able to just ignore everything and stitch, and then to see your gorgeous WIPs. :D

We have quite a few first timers... WELCOME!! :D
And to the repeat offenders, *giggle* YEE-HAW!!! It's HERMIT TIME!!!

Taylor, if you see this, comments on your blog are not working. :( Sorry, I couldn't email you directly as there isn't any email attached to your blog.

Mon, do you by chance have a blog we can stalk? I couldn't find any links on your profile page. :)

Now, for today's question... it's a loaded one and no cheating!! LOL!

How many WIPs do you have and feel free to list them all. :D

I've always been a one-project girl, that is until the Chatelaine classes got a hold of me. I've been told that just because I'm taking a class, and technically can't stitch on a project until a new part it released, I still have to count them as WIPs. How is that fair, may I ask? *stomps foot*

So, taking that into account, I have 4:
  • Chinese Garden Mandala
  • Spring Knotgarden
  • Mermaids of the Deep Blue
  • Regal Tiger *shudder just thinking of the yucky hard aida*

rosey175 said…
I have two actual, factual WIPs with one drifting toward UFO status, eek!

1. Dolphin Trio Dimensions Kit (WIP/UFO)
2. "Soul Pumpkin"

In my head however, there are about 20 billion WIPs. Do they count? XD
EveningEmma said…
I have a few:

1. Klimt's 'Tree of Life'
2. Mythical Dragon
3. Epic Pokémon Pattern
4. Birds Sampler (which I had completely forgotten about until just now).
5. Beatrix Potter Sampler (which is really a UFO and I don't know whether I'll ever finish it)
keebles said…
It's a mental block with me...only one WIP at a time! Mine is Mickey and Friends, but I have every intention of finishing it this IHSW and then it's on to A Walk In the Highlands, my first HAED!! (but I always do one of those miniature Disney kits with the little frames as in-betweeners as a sort of cool-down between projects).
Xeihua (Sara) said…
Yay.... IHSW is closing in :)
Now as per my WIPs, I'm actually being a good girl and keeping a low number:
1 - HAED QS Reflections 2 (my MP)
2 - HAED QS Believe
3 - HAED Dragon Fae 1
4 - HAED Touch of Spring
5 - HAED SK Treasures
6 - Table Cloth

Can you see a pattern xD
Agi said…
HAED: Train of Dreams
Chatelaine: Autumn Knotgarden
Chatelaine: Spring Knotgarden
Cross My Heart: Sampling of Herbs
Victoria Sampler: Heirloom Nativity Sampler

All together 5, but Nativity is to be restarted on a new fabric, Autumn KG published design is finished. So somewhere between 3 nd 5...
Rahenna said…
Not too many. :D

- Angel Procession (TW)
- Cirque des Circles (IC)
- Titania (Mira)
- Tree of Hope (Mira)
- mystery gift :D

I'm really only working on Tree of Hope and Cirque, though. The other two are trying to escape to the UFO zone, so I've gotta rein them in!

And I need to finish two ornaments this month, but those really don't count since I can bust those out in a day or two. *flex* XD
Claudette497 said…
I have 204 WIPs. I try to get stitches in on 3 every day. It doesn't always work, but if my math is right and I stick to my plan, 2014 will be a BIG year for finishes, lol

I usually reply to you guys individually via emails, but I have to say it here again.... Claudette.... oh my Lord!!!! GIRL!!!!! *THUD*
Xeihua (Sara) said…
I'm with you on your comment to Claudette Joysze.... OMG!!! :O you're really brave and now I'll be waiting ansiously for 2014 to see many of this finished :D
Adrienne said…
I have 3 WIPs:
- Drama Queen - custom chart
- Tree of Stitches - Abi Gurden/The StitchSpecialists
- QS Terra Fairy Sprite - HAED

and one that I think now qualifies as a UFO :(
- Home Sweet Home - HAED

I feel so guilty when I don't stitch on a pice for ages. I wish I had more time to stitch!
Anne said…
Um, WOW Claudette! That's a lot of WIPS!! I only have 1 technically:
HAED Tea Bath Fairy.

Finish pin cushion and start some new ornies.
Lissanne said…
Crap, I must still have a fever! Did I read Claudette has 204? OMG!

Mine are:
Chinese Garden
Hummingbird Garden
Micro 2
HAED Hold on to Hope

I have other Chats ready to start, but I haven't Stitched the start yet, lol.
Tama said…
WOW I have nothing like Claudette; I do have a big list but mainly because I used to start everything as soon as I got it and then it became a UFO. Except I don't like calling them that because I feel guilty for abandoning them. If I only count what I've worked on this year, I have around 15, maybe a few more.
Ewa said…
Holy CRAP, Claudette!!!

I have a few active ones:
Medieval Shelf
College of Magical Knowledge
Middle Earth
Riding the Wave

I need to restart Dark Queen

I also have some UFOs. A Thomas Kinkaid embellished cross stitch and some Winnie the Pooh bibs.
I don't know if I'm quite awake enough to list all of my WIPs here right now, but I'm pretty sure I have over a dozen of them, from kits, my own patterns, other people's patterns, and game sprites. It's fun to bounce between things, though, so maybe it's not *so* bad!
Veronica said…
LOL! And I thought I was bad. Seeing Claudette's list made me feel much, much better. ROFL! Here are mine in no particular order.

Mirabilia - Garden Verses
Mirabilia - Christmas Flourishes
Passione Ricamo - Romantic Stitcher
Shepherd's Bush - She Tends
Angie Designs - Romantique Sampler
Little House Needleworks - Little House Neighbourhood
Papillon Creations - Love With A Capital L
Drawn Thread - Spot of Winter
Lilliput Lane - Lilliput Village
Abi Guden - Tree of Stitches
Stoney Creek - New Birth of Spring
iStitch - Mystery SAL
Valerie Pfeiffer - Chorus Line

I *think* that's all but there might be a few lurking that have currently slipped my mind. I'll let you know if and when I remember what those are :P

threadbear said…
Sorry, just picking myself up off of the floor after seeing Claudette's wip list!

I've got "about" 10, all HAEDs *sheepish grin*

Joyce, hopefully I've fixed that rogue blogger post now :-)
Babs said…
1.Haed - Bottom of the Garden
2.A stupid steam and railroading pattern that is for an uncle and doesn't get finished.
3.Miss Kat - Home Sweet Home
4.A freebie from Crossstitcher, still not finished, half stitched I think
5.Beatrix Potter - Miss Moppet
6.Joan Elliott - Earth Goddess
7.Passione Ricamo - a monochrome faerie freebie
8.Abi Gurden - The Great Escape
And I still might have forgotten some
Rachel said…
I have too many, lol. Not as many as Claudette, but I could be there pretty quick, lol. I do have the majority of WIPs/UFOs listed on the WIPocalypse/25 Project Challenge on my blog. :)

Looking forward to IHSW!!! DH is taking the little man hunting (that always makes me worry) so I will be home stitching, either with my little girl or not (she's usually off somewhere else, lol).
Ummm... I will never, ever again, feel bad about the number of WIPs I have. Claudette, did you hear the clunk as my jaw hit the floor? 204? OMG.

Hmm... I have:

Sweetheart Tree June Sampler
Kreinik Freshwater Fish
Nora Corbett "L"
Lizzie Kate ABCs of Parenting
HAED Queen of Hearts
Dimensions Advent Calendar
Christmas Exchange Mystery Piece
Wedding Card for friends

June Sampler and Freshwater Fish will be finished in the next week or two. L will be finished before Christmas. Lizzie Kate will hopefully be done before Christmas. Advent Calendar - aiming for next Christmas :) Queenie? Well, She's for DH's 50th birthday. I've got just under four years.

Jenny said…
Oh LOL - too many to list! Sometimes they stress me out a bit, but for the most, I am fully content. Sometimes I feel bad about starting something new, but I can generally override those feelings....

Anne Marieke said…
Thank you very much for posting a lenght of Eterna out to us, Joyce! My share arrived today, so now I can complete my part 2.

Big hug!
Anne Marieke

p.s. too ashamed to list my WIPs ;o)
Mia said…
I really don't know... honest and true! I'm so totally unorganized... *shame on me!!*
But for sure I've got less than 100, more than 15...
And since I'm so darned unorganized, I don't have a list to give... *shame again!!*
Guess I need to get a grip on myself and organize my stitchings (and life... LOL).
Heather said…
Just 3:
Alphabet blanket
Christmas card
and a snowman pirate x-mas ornament
Mon said…
Sorry - I think I've fixed it now - my new blog appears as "contact me - my webpage" and it's http://menai.posterous.com/
