Treasure Hunt Bookshelf Day 32 WIPocalypse

Hello stitchers, thought I would do a quick update of Treasure Hunt Bookshelf for you.  I am going to join in with WIPocalypse this year.

This is hosted by Melissa at Measi's Musings

The topic for this month is to introduce ourselves and our stitching goals for the year.  So, I'm Claire, I've been blogging for about a year but stitching for much longer.  I live in a small town on the south  coast in Hampshire, UK with my husband of 12 years, our 8 year old son and our cat.  I work 3 days a week as a pharmacist which gives me a good amount of time to stitch.  My goals for this year are to get some finishes from last year framed or finished properly, to finish Bamboo Fan and to get halfway through Treasure Hunt Bookshelf.

Here's Bamboo Fan, I haven't touched it yet this year.

Here's Treasure Hunt Bookshelf as of day 32

I've finished 2 pages and have done over 17000 stitches, still inside my 500 stitches a day target.  I am going to have to make some progress on some other projects soon though, I need to finish my husband's birthday card before April.  Think I'll have to sort out a proper rotation.  I've said that before though and not done it!

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's progress, happy stitching!


  1. Both of these are wonderful!!!!!

  2. Great goals! I'm really looking forward to you bookshelf progress it's looking so beautiful :). I see lots of bookshelf starts but not many with more than a couple of pages done

  3. These are lovely projects. Halfway on THB sounds like a lot of work. Can't wait to see your progress. Good luck on all your goals!

  4. Wow! both are great... I look forward to seeing your progress.

  5. Good luck and great progress!

  6. So beautiful WIPs! Happy stitching

  7. I love your work on Treasure Hunt Bookshelf, it's an incredible design. 500 stitches a day is a lot considering the amount of confetti this has =)
    I also like your work on Bamboo Fan, good luck with finishing it =)
