Here you can have a shameless selfie of me on my first day!
But now, to the case in hand.
The WIPocalypse is hosted by Measi's Musings and the aim is to share (and ideally complete) projects we wish to finish before the End of the World.
Talk to us about your longest-running WIP or UFO
Unusually for me, my longest WIP is not a cross-stitch. It is my lovely crochet doll. I started it at least 4 years ago, and it is still going strong. I did make the doll and then stop for a few years. There has been a lot more progress in the past 6 months than in 4 years.
I am generally following patterns in the book My Crochet Doll by Isabelle Kessedjian. However, my friend requested that the doll not be a white doll (just so her children have a little more variety). So I made up a pattern to make a sari. I used a some of a top pattern and some of a dress pattern from the book, and then fudged the sash! Really love the wool for it though.
My problem is that I keep just having ideas of more and more outfits to make. And I get my tensions a bit funny, so I can't just give the doll and make more outfits. I started the doll when my friend's daughter was 3 and a bit. She is now 7 and has a little brother who is about 3 and a half - on the brightside, both of them will now get a lot of enjoyment out of the doll - if I finish it.
I am actually aiming to finish it as part of WIPocalypse - but we shall see...
