    Virpi’s finish in April

    I didn’t stitch much but still I managed to finish this project. I did only the  brown areas and backstitches.

    Not even half done SAT

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on April 22, 2008

    As I foresaw I ended up sleeping most of the weekend so only thing achieved was that I finished stitching the biscornu – which was 3/4 done anyway. 😦
    Better some than none and noticing how much I haven’t been stitching ( 😆 ) lately it was quite a lot.

    Hopefully we, me and my mojo, are in better shape next month. 🙂

    April Progress

    Posted by chiasmata on April 19, 2008

    I’ve made good progress so far this SAT. I didn’t get a before pic because for some reason my scanner doesn’t really capture the fluro orange thread I use for gridding (and frankly I don’t blame it! It’s ugly stuff, but very visible). But I started with my fabric 25% gridded. It’s now 100% gridded and I’ve stitched five hours of the project itself.

    I’m very happy with what I’ve achieved and might move on to another project for the rest of the SAT. 🙂 I hope everyone else is having a good weekend!

    Wash 09

    This is a pattern that I am stitching for my laundry room on Maui. I just have the words “Warm”, “Water”, and a sun to finish. I might even have time to stitch on another pattern if I finish this one.

    I just realized I haven’t even posted photos of my March SAT achievements, life has been so hectic… Anyway, this weekend is also a SAL weekend for me, I stitch Christmas ornaments with Stephanie. So my goals are: 1. to stitch and finish one Christmas ornament and 2. continue stitching Periphaeria’s Spanish Mystery Sampler ) I started it last month and I just love stitching it 🙂 I should have lots of stitching time this weekend and I’ll try to remember to post a photo of my progress after the weekend! Have a happy weekend everyone!

    April Goals

    Posted by chiasmata on April 18, 2008

    I’ve signed up for the next UFO RR at Worldwide Round Robins, which is great. There’s one problem though… I don’t have any UFOs! So this stitchathon I’m going to start one.

    I’ll be starting Cheetah and Cubs, a Jayne Netley Mayhew kit Kathryn was generous enough to send me. It’s perfect to be a travelling project as all the threads are there and the chart is beautifully easy to read. I also like the idea that the kit has already travelled from the USA to Australia and is now jetting off around the world again – it’s already travelled far further in its lifetime than I have!

    So this weekend my aim is to finish gridding up the fabric (a lovely Silkweaver do, not the kit’s aida) and stitch 10 hours of the design itself. I have zero plans for this weekend, plus season 1 of torchwood on DVD, so I should be able to get some nice stitching time done.

    Small goals for April

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on April 17, 2008

    I hope you all got the newsletter. 🙂

    Well, as I haven’t been well and will continue being not well for a while I keep my goals small (as I may end up sleeping the whole weekend):

    1. Finish monochromatic biscornu for an exchange.
    2. Finish the other humbug for an exchange.
    3. If I have energy and time: grid the linen for the monochromatic version of the Spanish Sampler and possibly start it.

    I know, this probably means no pictures. 😦

    But I can show you a floss + fabric toss of the biscornu:
