    Chatelaine’s Hawaiian Mandala

    Posted by tropo on May 19, 2009

    Mandala 26

    Originally uploaded by tropo

    Yes, I did finish Part Two of Chatelaine’s Hawaiian Mandala this weekend (with a few of the longstitches finished this morning). Instead of showing you the entire piece, this is a closeup of the final (top) pineapple motif for Part Two. Part Two also has black stitching that continues all the way around Part Three, but instead of stitching 80+ stitches into forever, I will save these until I work on Part Three.

    Too Cute to Spook, Progress as of 18.05.09 - Click for a larger image! Sorry I didn’t stop by on Friday to say that I would be participating. I did though and here is my progress on Stoney Creek’s “Too Cute to Spook,” a SAL that I am doing with my friend Dawn.

    Updates for SAL

    Posted by Susan on May 18, 2009

    Here is the first update-I finished most of the stitching and backstitching on Shimmering Mermaid.  I started the beading at the top-it is so much fun!

    Not so much stitching

    Posted by mcsewing on May 18, 2009

    I actually spent most of my stitching time working on my webpage, so mystitching suffered a little.  It’s nice to have made some progress on the dragon though:

    I also did the last few stitches of my space penguins early on Friday morning.  The picture can be found on my blog

    Hello all

    Posted by Susan on May 16, 2009

    Seems like we have missed the monthly reminder the last few months-and if I don’t get a reminder, I am not likely to remember!  I am stitching on Mirabilia’s Shimmering Mermaid along with you-will post a picture at the end of the SAL.

    Is it me?

    Posted by Stargazer on May 15, 2009

    Or did this weekend seem to come around quicker than usual?  And did I miss the e-mail reminder or didn’t we get one?  My life is rather topsy turvy at the moment so I really don’t know what’s what half the time!

    Anyway, I think to start with I’ll be stitching on EMS Advent Calendar number 10.  If I get that done I might work a little more on my lighthouses picture.  Here’s where I’m at right now with it:

    I love this picture so much, this is the second time I’ve stitched it.  I’m working it on 16ct antique white aida in two strand.

    Good luck to all who join this month, seems to be getting less and less of us these days! 😦

    Goal for May

    Posted by tropo on May 14, 2009

    I am in the middle of a large twelve part Chatelaine design called Hawaiian Mandala. I actually have two of the four pineapples in Part Two finished, but would like to finish the last two pineapples, and start the volcanoes of Part Three.

    May Goals

    Posted by mcsewing on May 14, 2009

    Well, I’m finally getting back to my dragon.  I have had several interruptions, the main one being company and it’s hard to keep this large of a project out and accessible.  I’m way behind on my yearly goal so I hope to do a little catching up, but I kind of think that getting a whole page done this weekend would be just a little over-ambitious!  🙂  So my goal is just as much as possible.
