    SAT epilogue – finally!

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on December 30, 2007

    Now that I am well enough to claim that I am not sick anymore (excluding the cough) it’s time to introduce my SAT failure…

    I only stitched this in Sunday, because I used Saturday to trim and grid the fabric by hand, before I had to call it quits because my muscles and joints began to ache too much to be allowed.

    Well, at least I got it started… 😐

    SAT finishes

    Posted by leenastitching on December 29, 2007

    I’m a bit late in posting, but better late than never 🙂 I didn’t stitch St Hippolyte this weekend, as I had some other stitching to do. So I finished this Christmas ornament, it was a gift and the design is Periphaeria Designs Artichoke Lace, but I completely changed the colours. I just love the original colours, but I wanted to do this gift with more traditional Christmas colours.

    I also finished stitching something for an exchange, but I can’t show you photos yet, as it is still travelling 🙂

    I will reorganize my rotation for the new year, so I think I’m going to stitch something else than St Hippolyte during the SAT weekends next year!

    Until next time, happy stitching 🙂

    Flo Progress

    Posted by Renée Goodvin on December 24, 2007

    Fairy Flora, Progress as of 23.12.07 - Click for a larger image! My goal was to finish Outi’s birthday exchange and/or work on “Fairy Flora.” I finished the birthday exchange before the weekend, so I worked on Flo. Since I knew I would be traveling part of the weekend, I didn’t have any specific goals but I managed to work on her for about 4 hours and get some more flowers done. I hope to be able to start working on her wings soon.

    Stitchathon finishes

    Posted by chiasmata on December 24, 2007

    I didn’t get a whole heap of stitching done over the weekend, but I finished stitching and then finished off the last few christmas ornaments for this year.

    And that’s me done for this year’s festive stitching. I hope everyone else managed to get a few stitches in this weekend.

    Different goals for this and next months stitchathons

    Posted by mombasa67 on December 22, 2007

    Hi everyone,

    this month will be moving, moving, moving…. so no stitching for me, since I have everything to pack and move!

    And January; due to the fact that our internetconnection won’t be up until the beginning of Feb, I won’t be able to post anything. But I do think that our new home will be “up” by then, so I might as well stitch the weekend anyhow! 😀 Taking part in 4 exchanges *how did I manage to get myself into 4….* I’ll have a lot to do! Lucky for me, I’ve got 3 exchanges ending at the END of January 😀

    So my goal for the January stitchathon weekend is to have all the exhcanges finalized, I’ll be posting pictures once I’m back on the net.

    A new start for the stitch a thon

    Posted by vkchev on December 21, 2007

    I decided on a new start for this stitch a thon. In about 30 mins(after dinner is done with) I am going to start stitching on the Nora Corbet design “Victorian Christmas Eve” that is in the Cross stitch and Needlework mag. I don’t have much on this weekend, just some tidying and the food shopping very early tomorrow morning to avoid the crowds. Mel

    Because off ….

    Posted by iris1973 on December 21, 2007

    …the Holidays, and lots of shopping and organizing to be done, I won’t be particiapting in this SAT. I’ll try to do some stitching in between , and post a picture of what I did. I’m going to start something new, called Christmas Tea by Plum Street Samplers. The original is on blue fabric, but I tea-dyed my own fabric for it 😉

    ‘Tis the season to be goaling…

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on December 19, 2007

    …because I am going to stay at my mom’s for few weeks from Friday and I will therefore have whole weekend reserved just for stitching!

    I won’t stitch Loy Krathong this month (*sigh*), but I will start Flashes of Gold, which is my RR piece at Solarium Sublime‘s Virtual RR#1 – and I will be SATting with it because my start is well overdue.
    And this is how it will look like when it grows up:

      (Click the pictures to see it bigger.)

    Though, the fabric I use is, once again, hand-dyed so there will be a difference as it’s more muted, lighter and marbled shade of navy. (I would provide pictures if I hadn’t already packed my cameras and stash.)
    My goal is to stitch half of the first section (cunningly numbered 1.).

    I am planning to get back to Loy In January, but who knows… I have models to be stitched so there may be more delay. :mrgreen:

    By the way, if someone is interested to see how the Winter Dragon turned out click the link.

    On the Road

    Posted by Renée Goodvin on December 19, 2007

    I will be on the road part of the weekend, but I will try to participate anyway. (Unfortunately I will be driving, so no stitching in the car for me… I am not that good at multi-tasking! )

    If I haven’t finished the Lady’s belated birthday gift by then I will work on it, otherwise I will probably work on “Fairy Flora.” When we last saw her (back in August) she looked like this:

    Chrissy Eve Eve Goals

    Posted by chiasmata on December 19, 2007

    I’m in for this month’s SAT, but no guarantees on how much stitching I’ll get done! 😛 This time of year is madness… 

     I’ve ditched my rotation for this month and focusing on ornaments and festive smalls. I’ve got one WIP which I started last night. Fingers crossed I can get it finished and then finished by Christmas. Hopefully the SAT will help me with that.  

    I hope a few other brave souls join in the SAT this month. 🙂

    ‘Tis the season to be stitching

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on December 19, 2007

    Which means that Stitch-A-Thon weekend is approaching!
    I know that to some of you it is the worst possible weekend ever, so feel free to take a SAT-free month. :mrgreen:

    I will be stitching, and Leena, I challenge you to SAT too… 😉

    And I have a minor request: please categorize your posts under suitable category as WP tends to create silly category (1) when no category is defined.
    It’s simple really. The categories are used like this:

    • Achievements: to post what you achieved during SAT.
    • Announcements: I use this category to announce things.
    • Blogroll: Don’t use this.
    • Goals: to posts where you place your SAT goals.
    • Info: another one for my use.
    • Introductions: Simply for intros.
    • Misc.: for misc. posts, for example feeling bad for not being able to participate due work/life…
    • Participants: to my use only, again. Our blogroll.

    Thanks. 🙂
