I stumbled on this site a week ago. I was surfing around for a new project. I was so impressed, I ordered the next day. I ordered "Tea" GD Leslie.

Has anybody here done that one yet? I like to start my projects in the bottom left corner, I have a corner of tablecloth done so far. At my speed, it looks like I might average two pages a month, so lets see I'm 30 years old now.....I might be 35 when I'm done Laughing

I live in Virginia and I love anything Virginia colonial. I finished a cross stitch of the Governers Palace in Williamsburg and started a pattern of the Williamsburg Capital and dropped it when i found this site. Too many cross stitches, too little time! Stitching

Its neat to see many accomplished cross stitchers in one place!

Welcome, now I am not the newbie. Laughing
I usually start my stuff up in the left corner, but sometimes, if it is not too big, in the center and wiggle my way northwest.

Four weeks in on "Tea". I have almost one page done. Forever it didn't look like anything but many tiny mulit-colored stitches, then all of the sudden it magically turned into a tea pot and a sugar bowl!

Anyone else have the "oh wow, my blob suddenly looks like something" moment? Laughing [/size]

I'm totally hooked now, or is that stitched now?!

One things for certain, really fall in love with the pattern you choose, its a commited relationship!

I'll post pictures when I get a bit further along and when I can figure out the digital camera! Stitching

yes you DO have to love your pattern ! that's for certain !

Photos ! .. I can highly recommend that you take photos of your progress, it WILL help you a lot to see progression, especially when you are confetti stitching in some areas and can spend an entire evening pretty much stitching a different single stitch per colour everywhere Wink

of course I could tell you that photos will keep you motivated too, but most of all, I better be honest and tell you that I love seeing others peoples work progressing and that with photos I would have my nose in your thread to check your progress .. very often !

I also checked out " Tea" ... another wonderful pattern to drool over !
