    Better late than never…

    Posted by Stargazer on October 27, 2008

    Well, I don’t know where the last week went but here’s the progress I made on my EMS Rose Sampler over the SAT weekend:

    I’ve done a bit more than this since but haven’t taken any photos yet.  I didn’t get as much stitched on it over the SAT weekend as I’d hoped which is why I carried on.  Still, it’s a bit nearer to being finished. 😀

    Progress pics

    Posted by Susan on October 21, 2008

    Sorry for being late-got busy and didn’t have time to take pics.

    As promised, I started Beyond my Heart.  I got all the words done and am ready to start the flowers.


    I also started my birthday present-it is canvaswork by Nancy’s Needle called Amish Trip around the world.  I love the colors and couldn’t stop myself from starting it!

    Fall Finish

    Posted by Renée Goodvin on October 20, 2008

    I meant to stop over here Friday and let everyone know that I would be participating this month, but I never got around to it. I did participate though… and even have a happy dance to show for it! 🙂

    Hi everyone,

    I’m so happy with my progress this weekend!
    And since I’m still (stupid) out of how to add pictures into my posting, you can see my progress in my blog and my webshots.

    Sorry everyone!

    Posted by Lady Periphaeria on October 19, 2008

    I am sorry that I missed sending the reminder email to you all, I honestly didn’t remember whole SAT weekend before today! 😯
    My lame excuse is that I have just started a new job and I have been working every day last week – and as the job is new I have been quite tired when I get home because there’s so much to learn and remember.

    I hope this won’t happen again. 😳

    October SAT – Mia’s goal

    Posted by mombasa67 on October 17, 2008

    Hi everyone,

    it’s been along time since I last participated in a stitchathon. But I’m here now and have started stitching this weekends doings. My before picture can be found here and I’ll post a pic to the same album on my webshots late sunday evening.

    I’m working on a sampler that I’ve started ages ago in 2006… it seems that all my stitchings have turned from WIPs to UFOs. My goal is to stitch as much as possible during this weekend.

    Happy stitching everyone!

    I nearly missed it too…

    Posted by Stargazer on October 17, 2008

    Ok, well, I didn’t and I’m here now.  This month I’ll probably be working on a couple of projects.  I still haven’t finished the photostitch so I’ll try to work some more on that, haven’t touched it since last month so won’t bother posting a photo.  I don’t know how much I’ll get done as it’s got to the point where it needs real concentration and I’m not sure I can muster it at the moment.

    The other project I may be working on is the Rose Sampler from EMS.  I started with part 10 in my chosen colour scheme and this is my progress so far:

    It’s not a great photo as the light was bad when I took it.  I’m working on 28ct Silver Lurex Jobelan in 1 strand of Venus thread over 1.

    I hope I’ll manage some progress on one or both of these projects this weekend, just depends how much time I spend on the computer!  Good luck with all your goals this month!

    New Start

    Posted by Susan on October 17, 2008

    This month I have a new start, so no picture.  I am starting “Beyond My Heart” by Blackbird Designs.  Although I have a couple of the Loose Feathers patterns, this is my first start.

    Nearly missed it!

    Posted by Rachael on October 17, 2008

    I had thought it was next weekend, good job I checked!!

    Ok I have a new start this weekend so any progress on that will be my goal!

    and it has a certain holiday theme that seems to come around to quickly each year!

    Good luck to everyone in their goals.

    Getting back to the dragon

    Posted by mcsewing on October 16, 2008

    Well my deadline for the ducklings is the 19th and I’m *just* going to make it.  I hope to finish them up Friday as I’m quite anxious to get back to work on the dragon.  I’d be absolutely thrilled if I could get the upper snout finished.
