The WIPGO Numbers for April were:
My projects were Nevermore, Lila's Studio and Halloween at Hollyberry Farm, Stacy Nash
Two weekends ago was WIPGO Weekend. The goal being to spend some stitchy time with the called projects for the month. While I did work on both, I made the most progress on Nevermore.
This weekend is 24 Hours of Cross Stitch Marathon Weekend. The object? Select one or more projects and spend 24hrs from Friday to Midnight Sunday stitching. I'm firmly on #TeamSleep. I started on Friday night and was able to get in about 4 hours before going to bed. Twenty more hours to go, fingers crossed.My focus piece this weekend will be Halloween at Hollyberry Farm. I will be working on the border primarily. I know I will have to do some frogging, but I will leave that for later.

Last week I spent a lot of time stitching, frogging, then re-stitching. Luckily the areas that I had to re-stitch weren't very large and in the end I was able to make some progress. When the threads I'm waiting on arrive I should be able to make some more progress. I hope my order arrives tomorrow as projected by the tracker.
This was a WIPGO weekend. I got a late start but was able to meet my goals.
My start on Spring Whirligig by Heart in Hand
Two more blocks from Casting A Spell, Blackbird Designs.
And my progress on Portrait in Red, Southern Roots.

WIPGO Numbers for March
Sunday, February 28, 2021
February is over and this is what I was able to accomplish.
My smalls were.
Candy Corn, a Mill Hill kit, finished as an ornament instead of the suggested magnet.
My three heritage projects for the month were, Lady Justice, Woman Silhouette, and Portrait in Red. Most of my stitching time turned out to be on Portrait in Red. I had a couple of visits from the frog, so I'm not done with the face yet. Hopefully, I'll be able to complete the face soon and move on to the shoulder area.

Happy Valentines Day!!
I finished my February Monthly Markings.
I also worked on 2 Mill Hill kits for my 21 Halloween Ornaments in 2021. I finished the stitching on Candy Corn from Autumn Harvest Collection and now I've pulled out Moonlit Owl. Hope to have both stitched and beaded soon. My other ornament stitching a start on Day 4 of Erica Michaels' 12 Berries of Christmas.
This month, I've decided to focus on my heritage stitching. The first week I worked on Lady Justice, last week I worked on Portrait in Red. I'm almost done with the head dress and should start working on her face soon.
This weekend proved to be very productive. On Thursday I saw the notification that the 13 and 14th would be the second WIPGO weekend of 2021. I set a goal of working 100 stiches on Woman Silhouette and to stitch the top border on page one of Nevermore. I was able to meet both goals and I'm especially happy with my progress on Nevermore.
If that wasn't enough I was able to purchase one of GaRon Toten Bags special February bags. It arrived of Friday and now houses Lady Justice!
