    Not as much as I hoped

    Posted by mcsewing on September 23, 2008

    I didn’t have near as much stitching time as I had hoped this weekend, Only got about halfway done with this scene.

    Another late post

    Posted by canuckstitcher on September 23, 2008

    I didn’t get a chance to post last week with a “before” picture, but to be honest, I hadn’t done very much anwyay. I didn’t do any stitching on Friday, so used Monday instead to finish off the backstitch.

    This is Lickle Ted, and I’m happy he’s done since he’s been hanging over me for AGES to be finished! I’m sending him off today to a chatboard that I’m part of, where he will be sewn up with some other ladies’ squares to make a baby quilt for a lady who is having a baby soon. I hope she likes it!

    I’m at work so can’t take the time to comment on individual pieces, just wanted to also add though, that I think everyone’s stitching is lovely!

    Cheers,

    Alli

    What I got done…

    Posted by Susan on September 23, 2008

    Photobucket

    I managed to outline the 3 remaining corners of part 7 and fill almost all of the top left hand corner.  It went pretty fast-will probably contine to work on this for while.  Love seeing everyone’s work!

    Autumn Chair Progress

    Posted by Renée Goodvin on September 22, 2008

    Autumn Chair; Progress as of 21.09.08 - Click for a larger image! Although I didn’t stitch a whole lot over the weekend, I did manage to squeeze in a few hours’ stitching on the Autumn Chair for Chris’s RR yesterday. It probably doesn’t look like I did much, but I did over two hours of backstitching before moving on to the leg of the chair!

    Late posting and little progress…

    Posted by Stargazer on September 22, 2008

    Sorry I’m very late posting this.  I did mean to do it on Friday and then didn’t feel well enough to even stitch.  So I haven’t made much progess this month.  I started with this:

    and finished with this:

    A very small amount of very small stitches completed but at least I’m a bit nearer the end.  Still going to be doing this one next month at this rate.

    Progress with Loy

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on September 21, 2008

    This is what I had when I started stitching in Friday:

    And this is what I have now:

    Less progress than I anticipated, but on the other hand I missed most of Friday because my ovaries tried to explode out of me of health issues and also because I am addicted to World of Blood RPGs at Facebook. :mrgreen:

    Nevertheless, progress!

    Update and goals

    Posted by mcsewing on September 18, 2008

    I thought y’all’d (that’s texan for ya 🙂 ) like to see what I got done on my dragon last month, but I won’t be working on her this month for a couple of reasons:

    1. I have company and the large frame and stand get in the way, and

    2. Due to the Stitching Olympics I participated in last month (I got a silver for the dragon and a bronze in another category) as well as having company, I’m behind on my duckling growth chart.

    My goal for this month is to finish the swimming pool scene and get a good start on the last nest box.

    I will Decide in the next couple of days

    Posted by kathysdesigns on September 16, 2008

    I have 2 things that I am working on at the moment, one is White Nights in St Petersburg and the other one is Jewels of the Orient.

    If I finish Jewels of the Oreint by the weekend, then I shall concentrate on St Petes, if not I will be finishing of Jewels.  Looking forward to it already, will add a before pic soon.

    Oh dear, Decisions!

    Posted by Rachael on September 16, 2008

    Well, another Stitchathon weekend approaches and decisions have to be made…

    Do I carry on with Celtic Spring, or do a bit more on Cirque des Cercles .

    I am tempted to have a new start, I have been really trying not to…

    but the urge is as strong as ever.

    Or as I write this I have had the newsletter email from Papillion Creations, so the next part of ‘How does your garden grow’ is available…

    HELP!

    I am sure by Friday I will of made a decision…hopefully.

    LOL

    Goals what are they…lol

    Goal for September

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on September 16, 2008

    Even I should stitch TSS (I’m badly behind because of life ( :mrgreen: ) and such) I decided to have a weekend off and stitch Loy Krathong.

    This is where I am now…

    My goal is to stitch half of the page five which means that mother should have some more body after coming weekend.
