March WIPocalypse...

Good day everyone!
Hope everybody is having a great week.

I realize I am a day behind with my wipocalypse update, but I could have sworn the post date was March 24th. (Too many dates and deadlines floating around in my head.)

Anyway, on to my update...
I don't have a lot of new things to share, since I've posted quite a bit this week.
As far as the WIPocalypse SAL is concerned, I finished 2 pieces that I was working on...

Pumpkin themed Halloween Ornament:

And, the Star Wars alphabet:

I have made some progress on my Christmas ornament...
-where I left off-

-where I am now-
He is slowly coming together!

Now to go digging into my stash to find some new WIPs that need my attention.

And, this month's question:
"Do you use hoops, stretcher bars, lap stands or Q snap frames and why?"

I use a hoop for all my stitching.
This hoop belonged to my mom and when she past away I started using it and I love it.  I have tried other larger hoops, but none of them give the amount of the tension that my little one does.  I am so used to this one, that I don't think I'll ever be able to give it up.
I would like to give Q Snaps a try, but just haven't got around to purchasing a set.  I do plan to in the future.
Eventually I hope to get a floor stand, to hold my stitching, since my hands do get really sore from stitching and holding on to the piece.  
For now, though, I am happy with my little hoop.

Well, I am off to get some cleaning done for Easter weekend.
Hope everyone has a fabulous day!
