At the beginning of 2011 I remember lots of people starting the crazy 15 challenge, which was to start a new project every day for the first 15 days of January 2011. I have enjoyed watching people's progress on their blogs. As well as that someone created a similar challenge but instead of new starts it was to complete 15 UFOs/WIPs. I've also enjoyed watching progress on those as well. Then there is the TUSAL (totally useless stitch-a-long) where people post pics of an ort container on the full moon of every month. And so many other sal's. For next year Measi of Measi's Musings has come up with he idea of a WIPocalypse. It is kind of a joke over the idea of 2012 being the last year before the Apocalypse occurs. The idea is to get as many of our WIPS/UFOS completed before that happens. Updates are to be posted every full moon during 2012. I haven't joined in other blogging related SAL's before but for some reason I want to join this one, so I did.

Here are the links to further information should you wish to learn more or join up yourself:

  1. Rules and sign up page on Measi's Blog is here
  2. FAQ on Measi's Blog is HERE.  
  3. List of signups is HERE.
  4. YUKU board for the group to keep up with each other and encourage each other is HERE

My list:

  • Woodland Fairy by Teresa Wentzler
  • Stroke of Midnight by Teresa Wentzler
  • Christmas Dreams by Joan Elliott
  • Sentimental Sampler (AKA Anniversary Sampler) from a magazine
  • Quaker (I forget full name but I think Marquior was part of it) by Mon Ami Pierre (I think)

I will add more WIPS as I find them. I know I have an LHN on the go, but can't find it right now and I don't remember it's title. Since the lists can be changed over time, I can add it later. Here's hoping I can keep up with this WIPocalypse. I tend to fall so far behind on everything because the depression and pain just seem to eat up all my time. I've spent most of this year just sort of "coasting" along because my mobility has been so severely decreased, daily pain level increased, and my motivation for many things decreased. So I figured I'd give this a try. It can't hurt I suppose and it may help me motivate myself.

  1. oooo good luck with it all :) I'm doing the crazy 2012 challenge :) love mouse xxxx

  2. I am glad to see you join the WIPocalypse, Missy! Don't worry about falling behind or keeping up because there is no time limits or deadlines for the group. Just stitch what you want, when you want and if you have progress to share, that's great!

    I understand how dealing with pain and depression really puts a damper on enjoying even your favorite things. I have gone through some pretty bad times over the years. I even went on a stitching hiatus for 2 years a few years ago. Now I try to keep my stitching as my therapy. Sharing it also helps, even if it's just online.

    I look forward to stitching along with you! :)

  3. Hi Missy! Thank you for joining the Wipocalypse (and for the plug!). I look forward to seeing your progress next year. Relax, have fun, and don't feel pressured. Every stitch is more progress!
