The latest Work In Progress Wednesday post is here
Work in Progress Wednesdays (WIP Wednesdays) is not exactly a challenge as it is more a support group! The idea is to cox and encourage people to complete large and/or languishing projects or WISPs (Works in Slow Progress) or if you are in the process of working a large project to regularly share your progress via a blog or public photo site like flickr.
The idea is, that if you regularly report publicly on a project you are more likely to pick it up and work it a little. Even if it means the project is out and ‘looking at you’ for most stitchers it means they will work it a little. This is ideal for anyone who is working on large things like a hand made crazy quilt or any large stitch project.
What constitutes a large Project?
We have to have a marker somewhere so I am going say any project that takes over 20 hours from start to finish. This means many embroidery projects although physically small would be included. For instance many stump work projects would take many more hours than that. Pulled and drawn thread work or reproduction samplers etc would all take much longer than that to complete.
How does it Work ?
I want to stress that you do not have to have something finished to post just something done that week! Every week in which you want to participate you need to post photo of how you have progressed on a blog, or one of the free public photo sites like flickr.
Next come back to Pintangle as each Wednesday there will be a Work in Progress Wednesday post on which you can leave a comment that includes a link to your site or photograph. This is so people can visit and see how you are going!
Can I rotate Projects?
Yes! That is what I do. I rotate between a few big projects so they hold my interest.
Do I have to do it every week?
No you don’t. We all have busy lives and although it is ideal to report in regularly it is not always possible. If you need to take a break just report in when you can.
What about UFO’s (Un Finished projects)
If you have stalled projects or if you are trying to work through UFOs (Un Finished Objects) or WISPs (Works in Slow Progress) even stash busting on projects that take over 20 hours would fit into this challenge please join in.
Help spread the word
Please link back to Pintangle or this page, so that people hear about it. Help spread the word and others will join.
All my Work in Progress Wednesday reports will be under that category and appear every Wednesday.
