1:57 pm Oct 30, 2009


This is as far as I got before it was time to head to Florida. This maid stays in Ontario. I have Birds and Snowy Berry Bushes here in Florida to do. It is tough going as there is so much confetti (spagetti) and so much gray. However..onward. I have seven others here on the go as well. and I want to start Ehret de Frauen (I have bought a 40" doweling to put iton,,and I keep looking at it. ) and I want to order the lovely Medieval Town Mandalas that rifestitch has shown. ..and my daughter has given me another SQ gift certicicate.. oh my. so much to do and so little time. When Gabriel blows his horn to call me, I refuse to go without my stitiching..
Does anyone start one and stick with it until it is done before starting another???

This looks fabulous!! It will be sad to let it wait until you get back to the Great White North Smile

I used to only work on one until it was done - maybe add a second very small piece to break up the monotony every now & then. But when I would get bored with it, I wouldn't stitch at all. So, since I started having multiple projects on the go, I ma never bored, and I think I am getting a LOT more done Smile I don't think I could ever go back to one at a time - though some days, I get overwhelmed with how many I have going Shocked

BTW - I finished my mini mandala a week ago - it's the small companion to the larger Medieval Town - and on black which was a killer with the dark green thread. http://rifestitch.multiply.com/photos/album/66/2009_Finishes#photo=27

The person who starts one and obsessively flogs herself until it's done, that's me. I have serious OCD issues when it comes to my needle crafts. I usually promise the project to someone (like someone I have given birth to) and then give my self ulcers over trying to finish it in an unreasonable amount of time. Is this enjoying one's hobby? Hard to say. But I'm old now, and I've done it this way for so long I don't seem able to change.

Hi Patricia

Yes, I am a one pattern kinda gal too, although I have to say that I am sorely tempted with the beautiful Island Mood Patchwork recently released by Meredith Shocked ; however, it's not that much smaller than Ehret and I'm not sure I could get my head round the enormity of two large projects on the go at the same time, although I could do a monthly rotation.

Help! Stop me now before I dive in! Rolling Eyes

PS - I highly recommend Ehret, but then I am biased Laughing

Best wishes - Christine x Stitching

NO,,n, no..stopping you Christine, Dive in Divecat!!!! I love having confusion company. Life is too short to limit one's self. indulge that wish. Actually, I keep them on the dowling and some on the scroll bars,.each have the threads in a little plastic bag on a ring in numerical order. that was I can look at them and decide which to work on. When I get bored with one, I pick another. I do love looking, thinking and admiring all .including the many charts I have filed.
Ehret certainly is calling me along with two others.. Twisted Evil

NO, neither she nor I are sad. We will be reunited and happy to see each other next April. your mini is wonderful. Are you still working on the large Medival town? I may need some tips when I order it.(I am stalling) I enjoy your web page ( if that is the correct term.) I have visited several times.

Hi Julie, you must be happy with the self flogging or you wouldn't do it. However change is good and perhaps a little daring. Start another small project and see if you get guilt feelings. If you do, hide it in a bottom drawer quickely. Laughing
I have learned some new tips from this site and find it so interesting that even if we cr st the same piece, we all seem to go about it in a differnt way. I suppose we develop ways and means that are comfortable for us.

Yep, still working on the big one - I am half-done with part 6 (of 12) - the first side of buildings. It is my favoritest project ever! So far Smile Thanks for checking in with my blog - I enjoy keeping it up, it keeps me motivated Smile
