Modifying WIPocalypse Plans

*Scrolls over the last month to see what happened since the last*
As far as WIPs from last year go, apparently I managed to finish Namaste.

And that was it. So I'm making the executive decision to count anything that was started before the previous WIPocalypse as an applicable WIP (that makes a lot more sense in my head).

Taking that into account, I finished off Lily of the Valley's head. Explanation about that: when I was trying to convert Lily to a brunette I couldn't visualize how the shading flowed. So I went ahead and stitched the head and then made the conversion. Instead of frogging I added the beads and I now have her head and shoulders (and headpiece) as originally charted. No idea what I'm going to do with it. Possibly a needlebook. I'll add that to the growing list of finishes that I plan and just can't be bothered to do.

Your Namaste is very pretty! Lily of the Valley is interesting with all of those beads. I think a needlebook would suit it well, actually!

That's a cute finish - she would be great as a needlebook.

Love Lily and all her bling!! Needle book or maybe a flat or cube finish to display somewhere! She is very pretty!

Well Namaste was a very good finish. I haven't had any finishes at all! I like the beads on Lily of the Valley.

Congrats on your Namaste finish! I love Lily in the Valley as a little needlebook piece. The beading is fantastic!

Beautiful beading.

Namaste is gorgeous! Are you going to frame it or make it into a bell pull or something of the sort? Great Lily head! Needlebook sound interesting!

Lily looks good with all the beads in her hair.
I think that she will look perfect on a needlebook.

Hugs Yvon.

Congrats on finishing Namaste. Your new Lily of the Valley start is so pretty. All those bling! I'd never have realized that from the chart photo alone.

Hugs,
Veronica.
