I don’t have any stitching news or progress to share, as over the weekend I went to the Problogger Event in Queensland. I know many of my readers are not really interested about in and outs of blogging but it was a wonderful stimulating few days. I came back with lots of ideas and have started to work on them behind the scenes. I think readers will benefit from the changes.
In the meanwhile I am opening up this post for those who use the weekly progress challenge.
Work in Progress Wednesdays (WIP Wednesdays) is not exactly a challenge as it is more like a support group! The aim is to encourage people to complete languishing projects or WISPs (Works in Slow Progress) or completing UFOs (unfinished objects) or those in the process of de-stashing.
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 pick it up.
If you have something you want to share please do! Leave a comment below with link so we can visit and see what you have done. Remember to include the http bit of your web address as then it will become a link that folks can click on to visit your place online.

No progress on my WIPW project too, I hope to spent time with it tomorrow. I just subscribed to your newletter, I’m looking forward to read your stitching chatter. Thanks for taking to time to write them!
Late and only ‘weed’ to show for it!
Hello Sharon, Like Anneliese, I’ve tried to subscribe to your newsletter but have had no email in reply. Should I try again?
I love your dedication to keeping us all informed about our chosen and loved craft, and I hope one day to be able to understand how to set up a blog and contribute to it. Sharon, I would also like to ask you if you are still selling your thread packs, which are mentioned in your archived posts. Claire
HI Clair I will send you a private email but briefly if the confirmation email does not appear soon do try subscribing again. Don’t hesitate to contact me as I will contact their help. The service is what is called a double opt in service which means the newsletter software wants people to confirm that they do actually want the email. It prevents a spammer from signing you (and lots of other email addresses) on to an email service. It is very ethical but the down side is that I cant just sign you up!
I am sorry the thread packs were a clean out. I buy threads bulk and hand dye them mainly for my own use but they do accumulate. Funny about that, but I think bulk purchases do that! So every couple of years I sell a batch as a clean out. I put them up and they sell quickly but I am not interested in making these a regular product. To be honest they are too much work for the price. So when I do sell them people get a bargain and it genuinely is something I do once every 2-3 years.
I started embroidery on some old painted fabric, still more to do.
I agree that a blog is a work in progress, that’s a good thing.
I had some time this week to add embellishments. You can see what I got done here, http://crazyvictoriana.blogspot.com/ .
I have made some progress on my Aug. CQ block. Yes, I am running a bit behind! http://princessbubblescreates.blogspot.ca/2014/09/work-in-progress-wednesday.html
Your Problogger event sounds fabulous! I look forward to seeing your newsletter.
Our family enjoyed a 4-day vacation (partially at home and with a quick trip to Seattle, Washington.) So, I did not make as much progress as I hoped this week, but I had fun. 🙂
I did finish one more name on my Winter/Christmas Wall Quilt and made some progress on my cross-stitch.
Well you know I would love to hear about your experience (if you ever get the time!) So glad it was beneficial and enjoyable!
Thanks to know, that you’ll be sharing your ideas from the Problogger event for our benefit. liking your page on face book, led to the knowledge of this event. Signed up for the subscription on newsletter.The studio journal class is helping me on my next project. .my progress is here-
Hi Chitra thanks but I dont want to lead you astray I was not thinking of talking about blogging but I am going to have stitch and crazy quilting related stuff not on my blog. I would hate for you to sign on and be disappointed
I’m happy to have had some free time to catch up a little.
I’ve completed 2 seams today and posted them on my blog and Flickr.

I have made no progress what so ever on my projects. I’ve been too busy making up kits for children’s classes. And as to sharing, I don’t think anyone wants my head cold. Maybe I will achieve more next week.
Have a good week.
Sharon, I hope that my subscription was successful as I tried to confirm it at least 3 times without finding the respective email in my mailbox. We will see…..
Stitch 128 is really pretty!
Anneliese I just sent you an email but I checked the newsletter subs list and you verified OK – So its all good thanks for subscribing!
