WIPocalypse August

Even though it is late, I have actually managed to post this time!

WIPocalypse is a SAL hosted by Measi's Musings. The idea is to stitch projects you would like to complete by the end of the world.

The past month, I have been actually making a dent in my own WIPocalypse list:

The crochet doll with dress up clothes is nearing completion. I have 3 outfits left to make! But I am quite proud of my latest, which is supposed to be a Hogwarts school uniform - I had to make up the pattern for the robe!

I have actually given myself a final deadline for this; the end of October. This is when the recipients gain a sibling, and I thought it would be nice for them to have this whilst the new baby gets a lot of attention.

I also stitched my Joni dress! There is a post to follow about this, but I am so happy with this finish (just a sneak peek for now):

Each month, Measi posts a question to answer. This month's is:

What do you have on your stitching bucket list?

I have two. The biggest is completing my Disney cross-stitch collection and getting them FFO. I currently have one complete and am part way through number 2. There are 3 waiting for me to start them. The Beauty and the Beast one took me 5 years. I am hoping to reduce the time, but I'm already half way through year 2 on the second one and it has been neglected for a while. Ah well!

The second are some lovely yellow cord dungarees. I am aiming to loose a bit of weight first before making these, but I think they will be my biggest sewing challenge. There will be a lot of fitting and pattern adapting required I feel!

Nice work on preventing the end of the world!
It's a lovely idea to give the sibling a gift when there is a new baby. They can feel left out and it's not like the baby will notice anyway!

Those Disney projects are so huge and complex I can see why it took so long.

Good idea to give a "big sibling gift". The clothes will keep them happy for ages. Your cross stitch is stunning. Enjoy completing the others.

I don't know much about Hogwarts but I think the robe looks good and it will be well played with! I love that striped fabric and look forward to seeing your dress.

Sweet doll and great robe!
I love your Disney collection, especially Beauty and the Beast.

You have been busy!
Well done getting your doll and accessories finished in time, especially the Harry Potter cloak you designed. I’m sure the “big sibling” will have hours of fun playing with this gift!
Gosh, your Disney collection is amazing. Well done with Beauty and the Beast!
