8 Jan 2012, WIPocalypse

Well, more good news.  I finished Sunset – A Gracious Era on Thursday night:

I’m taking Dimensions Gold Petites – Tiger Reflection to work to work on during lunchtimes, this is how it was when I picked it up:

And, since I’ve had such a roll with finishing WIPs (7 since just before Christmas), I treated myself to a new start on Thursday night.  Nora Corbett’s Christmas Tree 2008 (part of the epic stash).  This is how it stands as of tonight:

It’s going really quickly, partly because while I was fighting a really nasty eye problem recently, I discovered the value of enlarging charts and using a highlighter pen to mark off what’s done.  Twenty years of cross stitch, and I only discover this now!  I haven’t made a mistake since I discovered this (obviously I will now…)

In other news, I have a stinky sore throat, courtesy of the other half, so now I’m off to see what honey throat treatments I can find (we have sooo much honey in the house, I might as well use some.)
