    A very late post

    Posted by canuckstitcher on February 21, 2008

    I was away last weekend when the SAT was happening so didn’t have an opportunity to stitch on the project that I wanted to. Luckily, I had something small with me though, so I was able to do some diligent stitching on that. I managed to finish one of two ornaments in a package from Textile Heritage. Just the stitching of the other and the finishing up to do and I’ll be all done! All in all, not a bad start to my first SAT.

    My stitchathon weekend

    Posted by mombasa67 on February 19, 2008


    I’m sorry in being late with the postings, but I did have a wonderful weekend, stitching and all!

    I got the envelope ready and it’s on it’s way to a new home 😀 I’m sorry I can’t give but a hint of what’s done, but I’ll post a full picture once the ma is home

    My AprilMai Sampler got a few stitches

    And I started stitching Jayne 😀

    So stitching was the theme of my weekend for Sat and Sun

    SAT results

    Posted by chiasmata on February 18, 2008

    Double oops for me! First I completely forgot about posting my SAT results, but better late than never.

    I also had a really, really busy weekend. I got home very late Friday night, but I still wanted
    to start SATing. I didn’t have the energy to dig up Northern Dignity out of my WIP folder, so I grabbed what was sitting in Qsnaps in my lap frame and just started stitching! A bit more love squeezed in Saturday morning and Sunday evening (and a little last night) and I have a finish on my hands!

    Note and The SAT epilogue

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on February 18, 2008

    As I have recently been contacted through comments by two stitchers who would like to join I would like to remind that the Stitch-A-Thon? post contains full information regarding the issue. I have also contacted both of you, but never received a reply and therefore I can’t add you (I have no info for it).

    Anyway… I didn’t manage my goal as I had a nasty migraine Friday/ Saturday and I spent half of the Sunday chatting with a dear friend and the other half nodding, but at least I got something done.


    The ornament is actually completely stitched, but just in case… 😉

    Two Goals for Feb

    Posted by Renée Goodvin on February 15, 2008

    Above the Clouds, Progress as of 04.11.07 - Click for a larger image! I have two SAT goals for this month. For the first part of the weekend (and the majority of my SAT time) I will work on “Above the Clouds.” (I am so close to a happy dance on this one I can almost taste it!) Then on Sunday I will switch over to “Harvest Witch” as it is my regular SAL day on her.

    February SAT

    Posted by chiasmata on February 14, 2008

    My first SAT of the year! I was in the middle of moving interstate last month, but now I’m all settled in and ready to stitch.

    This time around I think I’ll give some love to Northern Dignity again, like in did back in November. It hasn’t seen much love since then, so getting some progress would be nice. Here is it at the moment, at just over 75%.

    Horrible photo, but it’s too big to fit in my scanner! I should finally go and buy myself an iron today, in case I have a happy dance!

    My goal is…

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on February 14, 2008

    … I am exhausted to put it mildly (published some models today), so I think that I go with small goal:

    1. Stitch as much of the second tile of “Heartfelt” as possible (I don’t have too much of the floss left so I stitch as much there is floss to stitch with) and finish it. The first tile is stitched and looks like this:

    As it is a model, even though a complimentary design, I want to get it done. 🙂

    2. Stitch and finish a belated Christmas ornament for a friend who hasn’t got hers in an exchange she participated to.

    I think that’s enough for my weekend. 🙂

    SAT is in this weekend!

    I recommend that you do subscribe to the Stitch-A-Thon newsletter as I may forget these notifications now that we have a system… :mrgreen:

    The newsletter

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on February 6, 2008

    I take it that all silent ones voted for Yay, too, and created an account at
    Though, WP’s sidebars don’t accept the newsletter code so I had to add one step to the subscription procedure and make the form off-site (the form now resides at Periphaeria Designs‘ server). You can subscribe by clicking this link. 🙂

    (The link is also in the right sidebar.)

    Newsletter question

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on February 2, 2008

    Hello folks! 🙂

    I have been wondering for a while would you like to have a newsletter which would remind you about the SAT few days before the Stitch-A-Thon weekend?
    I could easily set it up if you think it would be good idea. 🙂

    And, please notice that SAT’s contact email has changed and is now stitchathon @ gmail . com (without the spaces).
