Hi
New to the forum and the site. I have ordered and started "Luncheon of the Boating Party - Pierre Auguste Renoir". I been working about 5 days, just a tiny bit done.
I noticed going thougt the site not a lot of current posting, which I take to mean, that every one is nesting and sititching getting ready for a long winters project. So that got me to wondering what are you working for during the winter? SQ or NOT, just wondering...... Stitching

I have my first SQ pattern, "In the Grass" as my biggest project... I've finished about 1.5 pages, and the pattern is only 6 pages long! I won't tell you how LONG it's taken me - it will just make you cry.

Then I also have Dimensions Gold Collection, "In her Garden" in progress... I got it while on vacation, I didn't have my SQ with me.

Plus, now and then I want something I can finish in a weekend - so I have several bookmark patterns lined up and set aside. Smile

Now, if I could just afford to quit my job so I could stitch more often... hmmm

Hello, this means I'm not the latest newbie anymore.
At present stitching an SQ , " A young girl reading" started 4 months ago and is about half done.But yours is bigger and a lot of people, so never compare Exclamation
Have some unfinished patterns laying around, but as they say " all in good time ".
But it's nice to have something you enjoy during the long winter evenings.
Allthough the summer evenings here are long too, at about 7.30pm it's getting dark and within 1/2 an hour its dark.
Have fun Stitching

Hi Joann,
I'm working on my first SQ Virgin of the Lilies. I have done a little on it and I have to set it aside for now because I have to study for a comprehensive final. I am in nursing school at this time so I can't stitch that much than I used to. I also have two SQ pattern on my stash which mean I have to catch up pretty soon but for now schoool is my priority as its geeting tougher Crying or Very sad

Good luck on you WIP, and Happy stitching

Nora

Hi Nora, just want to wish you good luck for your exam. And hope that afterwards you have some spare time to stitch on your SQ. You know when I had exams, I would study for an hour and then take a break for 15 minutes and stitch, so my head was clear again.[not an SQ though, something simple]

Hi Joann and welcome...
I've been working on "The Sense of Light" from SQ for the past couple years... The first summer I had it, it was terribly humid so I put it aside for the duration. This summer wasn't so bad, and I did manage to get some stitching done on it in the mornings on my porch before the sun came around, but then I had a problem with my eyeglasses so had to put it aside until I could get a new pair. I have about 1/15th of it left to do.
And because it's so large, I have other smaller projects that I can take with me wherever I go. I'm currently finishing up a 5"x7" that I work on in bed sometimes (instead of reading) and am about 1/4 of the way through a Christmas stocking that I take to the policing centre with me when I'm volunteering there (sometimes, it's pretty quiet).

Thank you Fenny,
Yeah I do that before and I had the habbit of can't put it away and ended up stressing for a test so I decided better not this time Wink But I'm looking forward for almost two months break in school so I can catch up and put my books aside.

Best regards,
Nora

Welcome, Joanne. I'm working on 'The Young Gardener', and a couple of simpler ones..a 'Dolly Mama' kit, and a small work (6 inches by 8 inches)I patterned from a photo of my grandson when he was a baby. The photo is black and white, so there aren't a lot of colours.

Thanks for asking.

Hey, Joann!

Well, I have a weekly rotation of 5 major projects, and a couple of side things. My 5 major projects right now are:
- SQ Lady & Unicorn (I have updates in Coffee Break - I have app. 10% done);
- TW's Fantasy Triptich, which is about 2/3 done;
- TW's The castle, which is about 1/2 done, part of a SAL;
- Needlemania's Fire Flower, which I will end up doing twice, once in assissi, once in XS on the same fabric - I am past the half-way mark on the assissi side;
- and finally, I will be starting my second soldier memorial in a couple of weeks, as I just finished one.

If I don't feel like working on one of these focus pieces, I have a very large sampler that I take out, a 16-part freebie design that I am working over-1. I also have a travel project that I take to my kids' soccer games and practice and such, another freebie, Bouquet for Cheryl. I have a bag of ornaments kitted up for travel projects also, when BfC gets done.

I am hoping to get a lot of stitching time over the next few months - I vowed no stitched gifts this year, as I about pushed myself over the edge trying to get things done last year - not doing it this year. And I want to get one of these TWs done, as I have my first Chatelaine ready to go into one of those spots Smile And as soon as Fire Flower gets done, I have a Long Dog to go in its spot, if I can come across the $$$ to buy the silk floss I want for it. And that's not mentioning the other 30 things that are just about kitted up.... All I need is less work and more time!!! But, don't we all??? Stitching Stitching Stitching Stitching

Hi Joann,

Welcome to SQ, Joann and thanks for asking the number 1 question that will get ALL of us talking!
I've been a bit of a slack so and so on my stitching this year and am still only about 2/3 finished on a TW (The Minstrel) I promised myself I would have finished by July! So, that's priority #1 for now. The next thing in line is a medium sized (30cmx 40cm) interpretation of one of my favourite Australian paintings which I bought over 2 years ago (Down on His Luck- Frederick McCubbin). It's not an SQ unfortunately, but I don't want to discard it just because I now have other things to do. And then it's on to SQ mania! I'm not sure where to start really; whether to start the pattern I won (Neptune's Horses), or choose something from my ever growing wish list! I'm hoping to have the McCubbin piece done by mid year (optimististic- always!), and then will just go wild.
I'm also hoping to have saved my pennies by then and FINALLY be able to afford the floor stand and scroll frame I've been dreaming of ever since I got into big cross stitches.

Keep it coming! Razz
