WIPocalypse & finishes!

Let's do finishes first because those are more fun. :p

This is Pumpkin Flower Sampler by Bent Creek!  I finished the stitching last Thursday at knitting group because I'm a rebel like that.  Got some buttons over the weekend to really finish it up.  The design called for square buttons but again, I'm a rebel so we have stars and rounds instead.  SO THERE!


And I don't think I ever showed this cute CCN (or was it LHN?) design my wife finished last year.  Oops!  So here it is!  Love that little crow button. :3


Hmm, and now WIPocalypse...

And I'm working on CCN's Cherry Hill now, which was my day five CJC start.  Since I'm no longer participating in CJC, I'll probably just work on this between my larger WIPs until it's finished.  This is a cute design but a very boring stitch because of all the large areas of the same color.  If we have any other designs like this in the stash, I think I'll pass on them!


As for "real" WIPocalypse stuff (aka WIPs carried over from last year), I did a little work on Tree of Hope yesterday but I don't have a picture to show as it's just part of the tree trunk.  Not very exciting. :p  I'll probably do more today since Cherry Hill is getting on my nerves with all that one-x-at-a-time green.
