We've reached another full moon, so it's time for a WIPocalypse check-in, as hosted by Measi.
This months topic is: How do you overcome that feeling that you’re in a rut with a particular project?
I have to say, I'm not sure how to answer this one just yet. Since getting back into cross stitch last year, I really haven't worked on any big projects, and usually if a project gets abandoned it's because there's something else that I need to work on for a deadline. And a deadline is a pretty good way to force yourself to wade through a project that's got you down at the moment I guess.
So after that lame answer, it's time to show off my progress for the month. One of my main original WIPocalypse goals was to keep up with the Crazy January Challenge. With the wrap up of the challenge last Saturday, I'm actually happy to say that I kept up with it, and started a new project or worked on a WIP for every day in January. So I thought I'd take this WIPocalypse post to do a quick recap of the project.
Someone in our challenge group on Facebook showed me how to use an online editor to create collage graphics, so I couldn't resist. I took new pictures of almost everything last night to make these with, since I realized I didn't have "finish" photos to go with my projects throughout the month, and I thought it would be fun to share what some of these will look like when I get to finishing them. So for anyone who missed it, here's a breakdown of everything completed for January.
