You heard it right folks! We are running a WIP (work in progress) challenge for our Community!

How many times have we vowed to go into our project dungeons closets and grab an old project we’ve been working on to finish it?

Many times right?

Sometimes a project gets too difficult, or we run out of supplies and materials, we get bored and want to work on other projects or we loose stitch count and have to frog some of the project. Then there are times we realize we were doing the wrong measurements and it’s too late to do a simple fix but instead must start over.

So what happens after all of that?

We throw the project into the deepest box, in the deepest darkest loneliest closet ever, never to be seen again.

Farewell project…it was nice knowing you. You could have been amazing but you frustrated me too much. 🤣😂😅

Okay needleworkers. We want you to go and grab that project out of the dungeon, give it another shot and work on it for the next two months or less. We’re not saying finish it (if you do that’s a wonderful bonus) we just want to challenge you to give it another go and see where it takes you.

Most of us have all been there and has something lurking in that dark dusty box we’ve came across or thought about from time to time. Here’s your chance to redeem yourself and work on it along with others who will be working on there’s.

WE WILL DO THIS TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY!

Let’s encourage one another during this challenge to keep going and working towards getting a WIP progressed further or even finished! 😃🤩🥳

So here are the RULES:


1. The guidelines still apply to your project being needlework related or any form of fiber arts that deal with knotting, braiding, felting, lacing or any form of manipulation of fabrics and yarns.

2. To enter the challenge you must give us an introductory post introducing what your WIP is, how long it’s been in the dungeon, why you locked it away and what what your plans are for working towards completion of it.

3. During the challenge post your WIP progress any day of the week directly from the Community page.

4. You must always include the word WIP somewhere in your progress title! This will help us easily find your work and keep track of who’s participating. Also please add wip as one of your post tags.

5. When sharing your progress please show at least two photos so we can see how far along you’re coming. Also talk a little about the steps you’re taking and what you may be doing differently this time around. Take us along the journey with you so we can support you 😊.

Dates of Challenge:

The challenge will start July 1st and will run for 2 months ending on August 31st!

That’s right! We will be encouraging and motivating each other for 2 months friends. We really hope this time gets you motivated and pushes you to get done what you’ve been putting off for awhile. It will be fun doing this together as a group! 🤗

Oh and hey, if you finish the WIP you’re working on and want to start on another, go for it 🎉!! You’ll continue being entered into the weekly drawings as you share. Just be sure to do another introductory post to introduce the next one!

As mentioned earlier, if you don’t finish your WIP it’s okay. You should feel good just knowing you were able to dig it back out and work on it even for a little bit.

Weekly Prizes

We feel this challenge should just be that and not a competition. We will all be working towards the same goal.

With that in mind we will be doing a weekly random drawing (every Friday) throughout the challenge (that’s 8 weeks). We might draw 3 names or we may draw 4, it will be different every week and the prize amount will vary as well. 👀😄

When you participate during the week, your name will be entered in that drawing to win some HIVE/HBD! Whoo Hoo!!

The payout of this post will be used for the weekly prize drawing!

So who’s in 😃?


Ready, Set, Go grab those lonely WIPs!! 😆


The photos on the cover photo are from members who have posted and shared a WIP with us previously…@erikah, @monica-ene, @tibaire, @irenenavarroart, @fiberfrau and @kesityu.fashion. Thank you ladies and keep up the great work ~ 💗

Oh nooooo from now on I will see myself as a leather-clad jail mistress punishing innocent cardigans, sweaters and socks (especially socks) in their wardrobe-dungeon 😂
Back to serious: I love this challenge, my real problem will be to decide which poor project to choose… there are so many :-DD
And I am so curious to see all the other forgotten and hidden things the community is working on. Perhaps I will get some dignity back, when i realise I am not the only one with a pile of unfinished projects. 🙏

You and me both @neumannsalva! Forget the boxes and boxes of repairs dating way back when. Unfinished sewing that was started with so much zeal. I hope the leather allusion is because you make leather products? Either way I roared with laughter over the opening line

Ahem- no, no leather working on my side only strange images in my mind after reading of the dungeon of the unfinished projects :-D
But I am happy you had to laugh <3 (I am not always sure my humour is understandable through the writing, especially as English is not my native language)

Hahaha!! I thought you all would get a kick out of the dark dungeon reference! 😂

Yes, I think once you realize you’re not the only one you’ll definitely feel better. You can even see by reading the comments here. 😁

Thank you for this challenge. One more reason to continue with my work. Today I happened to talk a little bit about the progress of my work. There I go little by little and much more animated than less than a month ago!

Now knowing that I can post about the progress of my work as a post, gives me an additional plus, to continue with the firm goal and without leaving it aside.

Next week I will tell you about my progress.

Oh oh oh! Just this morning I was dusting, it's amazing how amazingly #hive and its users change the look on my face for the better.

@crosheille thank you so much, I was hoping for a challange like this, I love it! The month of July we'll be having fun doing step by step and calmly those projects that we put away for different reasons.

I'm signing up for this challenge, at last my beloved forgotten fabrics will be back in my hands!

Success to all of you. 🙋🐝🤗

Wow! Thanks so much @crosheille for this challenge, this will motivate me to go pick up those abandoned project and start working on it again, the joy of this challenge is that it will last for two months which will give me more time to think of how to design and combine other materials to those projects I abandoned because of insufficient materials, trust me I have lots of them heap up somewhere, now it's time to revisit those projects again.

Oh yes! Finally, a contest for all the WIPs. Haha. WIPs are waving on my mind now, they're somehow happy for the chance you've given @crosheille. 😅

And know what's the best thing? We can do or continue doing not just one, no, but more than one of the many WIPs we had. That is soo great. 😍 They have all the chances now. And how kind of you giving us an ample time to really finish it for 2months! Now, there's no reason why everyone can't participate. This will be fun and exciting. 🥰

My mind is scanning now all my WIPs. Lol🤣

I had to smile reading your comment - smile about myself because I honestly started to plan how I can finish all my projects, not one, but all :-DDD (completely impossible) I saw myself writing daily post,working meticulously on one after the other sweater, sock and cardigan. But then I woke up from my daydream and remembered I sadly am no millionaire and need to work sometimes instead of only knitting :-DDDDD
Looking forward to see your post (and your much more realistic plan of finishing one thing) <3

Lol!! Yes, I stand for the WIPs! I am now their official advocate!! 💪🏽😂

Yep, no excuses. There is plenty of time to at least get something done with one WIP. I hope this motivates many to do multiple WIPs. I think I just like saying the word WIPs now.
🤣😆😜

Have Fun!!

Excelente desafío 👍🏻, ésto hará que retomemos con ánimos los proyectos no concluidos, en los que pensamos perder tiempo y material, además de los dolores de cabeza que nos causaron, así que a desempolvar y manos a la obra. Felicitaciones a los creadores del desafío. Bendiciones 🙏🏻😊

Hi, howdy. Grateful @crosheille for such an important decision, as I have some jobs full of demotivation stored in the trunk of memories.

I have the utmost conviction and certainty, that now I will finish some incomplete works, this journey excites me. 😉 ❤️

I love this challenge, it's a good way to motivate us to finish those projects that are hidden there, and when we order they jump out.

Now, I have several projects on hold, can I select more than one?

I will be participating in this great opportunity.

Sure why not?! Just please follow Rule #2, it will still need an introductory post. Tell us what the project is, maybe share a few of the supplies you plan to use and what discouraged you from starting on it.

Hola buenos días desde Venezuela, me encontré con esta publicación que me pareció fabulosa.

No soy costurera pero me gusta coser para mis niñas de vez en cuando, pero a mano, No tengo máquina de coser.

Por esto mismo me había cansado las manos y dejé un pantalón a medio coser. Que me gustaría continuar y mostrarlo.

Pero ya está avanzado y como fue hace tiempo, no tengo las fotos del proceso.

Como es eso lo de la introducción? Esa parte no la entendí mucho.

Me gustaría participar y así agarrarle el ritmo a la costura nuevamente.

Muchas gracias por hacerme recordar ese proyecto que tengo en la mazmorra.

Saludos y bendiciones.



Hello good morning from Venezuela, I came across this publication that I found fabulous.

I am not a seamstress but I like to sew for my girls from time to time, but by hand, I do not have a sewing machine.

For this very reason I had tired my hands and left a pair of pants half sewn. That I would like to continue and show it.

But it is already advanced and as it was a long time ago, I don't have the photos of the process.

How's that for the introduction? I didn't understand that part very well.

I would like to participate and get back into the rhythm of sewing.

Thank you very much for reminding me of that project I have in the dungeon.

Greetings and blessings.

Greetings @leidimarc!

Thanks for your comment. What we mean my sharing an introduction is actually creating a separate post about your project and including the things I mention in Rule #2.

I hope that helps but please let me know if I need to further explain. 😉

Es decir puedo hacer una presentación indicando que me gusta hacer que valla de acuerdo a lo que en esta comunidad y hablar sobre ese proyecto que tengo sin terminar.

Luego en otro post, mostrar como saque del olvido ese proyecto y ponerme manos a las telas y a las agujas.

Como es primera vez que entro en la comunidad, no conozco bien los términos.

Un wip, es un trabajo en progreso. Es decir el proyecto sobre el que se trabaja.



I can make a presentation indicating what I like to do that goes according to what I like to do in this community and talk about that project that I have unfinished.

Then, in another post, I can show how I got that project out of oblivion and get to work with fabrics and needles.

As this is my first time in the community, I don't know the terms very well.

A wip is a work in progress. That is to say the project on which you are working.

Oh I didn’t realize this was your first time here. Welcome to the NeedleWorkMonday Community!! A good place to start to learn about who we are and what we do is by reading our FAQs.

So yes for this challenge it would be good to do a slight introduction of yourself and what needle crafts you like to do. Within that same post you can introduce your WIP. You don’t have to do two separate posts.

Correct, a WIP stands for work in progress which is a project you are working on.

Y yo esperando.

Ahora sí estoy clara de lo que puedo hacer.

Otra cosa, si conoces más la comunidad, aquí se podrá publicar sobre la elaboración de Lazos para el cabello en tela y en cintas.

Saludos y bendiciones.

Oooh what an awesome challenge!! Thats so cool, well I guess we will all go through some tough times hahah I must say I already did get very inspired to face some of those project, especially by @neumannsalva facing her awesome knitting and crochet works, without arms or not enough yarn left... and I am looking forward to share those left-behind objects in the deepest boxes, in the community and see what comes together!!:) very inspiring challenge, thanks @crosheille to have come up with it!!:)

Ummmm....that may get a leettle embarrassing. I have hubby items cut out from my first year of marriage. I have maternity clothing unfinished from my first pregnancy. Not to mention the endless newborn material piled up loved but uncreated. Lovey idea though @crosheille

Hahaha no embarrassment, no shame for we all have those hidden projects lurking deep in our basements. 😄

Maybe the projects you no longer need for you and your family can be given away for charity?! Then you can free up more space for further ventures!! 😁

Thanks! So glad you like the idea ~

This is such a wonderful and pertinent challenge for us all! I hope that you make it a regular thing!!
I have one unstarted project that I am planning - as strongly as I ever can - to initiate this week, and another couple - the pink lace blouse and the white playsuit, which both need some challenging finishing elements, which my skills and focus need to be super-engaged for.
I endeavour to do my best! It's really great to have you all here, to help me be accountable!
Blessings!
