Welcome to "The Girl's Gone Crafty!" blog about all things, well, crafty, of course! My name is Raquel, owner of Calico Craft Designs, and lover of all things Craft. I hope that you too will join me on my journey to finishing one more UFO (unfinished object), stitching for charity, and just learning more about the wonderful crafts available out there.

WIPocalypse 2013 - September Update

I cannot believe that it's already time for the September update!  This year is going by waaaay too fast!  It's going to be 2014 before we know it.  I'm actually a little late with this month's WIPocalypse post as it was actually due on September 19th. 

I did make a little progress this month on a couple of cross-stitch projects as well as in completing several rag wreaths and candle-rings and working on my first latch hook rug.  It's been a busy month for crafts!  Here's what I worked on this  month.

Progress from the end of May 2013

Progress as of September 28, 2013
A fabric Candle-Ring for a good friend who loves the GA Bulldogs (UGA)

A small "girlie" wreath for a friend's 4-year old daughter who loves zebras

Three Halloween wreaths for sale at the Calico Craft Designs Etsy Shop
Almost finished with a Winter Cardinal piece I'm doing for my Mom for Christmas
And last, but not least, I did work on the "Summer Fairy" by Joan Elliott.  Below is the photo taken shortly after I started on it in May 2012.  I haven't taken a new progress photo yet and will probably wait and add it for the October update.

Happy stitching until the October update on the 18th!
