WIPocalypse - September

Wow, I actually managed to be a whole week late with my update :D I somehow thought that Septembers WIPocalypse would be on the 29th or 30th, but it was the 25th. Well, as every month - better late then never, right? ;-)

This wonderful SAL is hosted by Measi and you can find the link-up here. 
This months question is:  Which floss (or color of floss) do you absolutely adore and want to stash constantly?
Well, I normally work with DMC (due to all my Haeds) and I make sure to have plenty of that all the time :D Apart from that I stock a lot of Glissen Gloss Rainbow R000 to substitute Kreinik, I tried a few blending filaments and this is just my favorite one to use. Apart from that I don't use a lot of special threads, so I guess that's it ;-)

Well, I only have two projects to show this month, but I did manage a fair amount of progress on both!
First up as usual - my Kriemhild! I managed to finish page 28 :)
I went from here:
To here - page finish also means you get a full picture =)
Doesn't she look pretty =) And by now I am really close to the halfway mark now, I am so excited =)

The second project I worked on ist Whispers by Melanie Delon. This was my new year start for this year and I haven't worked on this since January, so I thought it was about time to pick it up again. I added another 4000 stitches and went from here:
To here:
I think the flowers look truly amazing and it is so much fun to stitch, a nice mix of confetti and and background stitching.

I picked up Supersized Ride of the Yokai last night, but I didn't get much done so far. I thought about making this month my supersized month and try to get some work into my huge projects (they will take their time to get done anyway...) ;-)

I guess that's it for this month =)
Happy stitching =)
