WIPocalypse 6: no WIPS

I don't know what happened to the last month and a half.  The end of the school year is always a blur but at least the kids are done, finals are over and we can all relax a bit, finally :)   I have (almost) nothing to show for being gone so long.  Two exchanges I can't show yet, and a third I forgot to photograph before it was sent. This is what I received from Mare for the BBD #9 exchange.  I love these little stockings but I can't manage this finish myself--anything oddly shaped is just beyond my skill level--and this one is just adorable, I think!  Mare said the pattern was one the BBD girls produced for a retreat, so I don't know the name or if it even has one.  I forgot to take a picture of what I sent (a box with a pattern from the Honeysuckle Manor booklet) but perhaps Mare will post a photo if she has time.

I have been very, very bad and not touched any WIPs at all for ages but I will get back to them as I am starting to feel guilty.  I think Kindred Spirits will be first--I will finish it this year!  In the meantime, I have been indulging my Supernatural obsession in a new way.   This one is based in part on a freebie from The Primitive Hare, and n part my own design.  Until next time!

What a fun exchange piece!! How neat! I love those little BBD stockings. I stink big time at finishing but, should you ever want to attempt the finishing yourself, Vonna has a great picture tutorial. I couldn't have done mine without it.

LOVE the keep calm piece! I'm such a dense twit that I was thinking, "She looks salt on her food, too?". Then I looked at the complete design again and the light bulb went off. LOL Very cute!

I just love your keep calm piece. It's great!! And grats on getting your exchanges done. If you can steal a pic from Mare's blog, I'd love to see it.
