That is so strange. I just looked and no one had posted on the forum, and I wondered why so quiet--I actually considered for a minute posting to make sure everyone is still out there, then I looked up and saw your post. It was a little strange and I took a double take. Thanks for breaking the silence.

I wish I had been stitching a lot, but haven't had a chance in several days and it is driving me nuts. I actually took my sewing bag with me today while waiting to get my oil changed but couldn't bear to break it out in the less-than-sterile environment for fear of getting it dirty. So I read instead. I'm working on "Sunday Afternoon on Le Grande Jatte," painfully slowly, but I love it every chance I can get to work on it. I'm trying to figure out how to have more time to stitch...

I'm still working away on The Young Botanist, when I'm not doing yard cleanup. It's that time of year again when the garden beckons. But my front porch is all cleaned up and tidy and I even managed to take the botanist out and work on it there the other day. I'll post another picture of it soon.

Looking forward to seeing your YOung Botanist. And I am so happy that the weather is nice enough to sit out on your porch and start your gardening. We will be heading north soon. My Chocolate Pot awaits me. Laughing

I'm not very far along. I have to work from the middle of the project, so I'm working on 2 pages at a time in the center (probably a mistake, as it is a little overwhelming). I am not technically savvy at all and don't really know how to post a picture, but it is not nearly as impressive as the other ones I've seen on here, and the stitches are much more scattered. I tend to follow the color as far as I can, and I'm going back and filling in. This is my first pattern, so I'm sure I will learn a lot from it. Also, I haven't yet tried the floss lasso technique but will have to eventually for the little lone stitches I'm sure or the back will be unmanageable. Finding time with work, husband, children is a challenge--for most I'm sure. But it is so relaxing. I will try to figure out how to post--just a little embarrassed I don't have more done by now Embarassed

So quiet?     Reply with quote

Time is indeed the issue, right? Time spent posting is time not stitching; time stitching is time not preparing income tax return Evil or Very Mad ; time thinking of alternatives to preparing tax return is time . . wasted. Anyhow, I am at the beginning of my first SQ project, Edward Hopper's "Gas." I love this lonely, twilit rural-scape, and it will look just right in a guest bedroom furnished wth Depression era crafts, quilt, rug. I can't really speak of pages completed, as I am just moving from color to color, trying to work little islands first, then the surrounding blocks of color. So far it looks great . . . on the front.

That is a very interesting piece. Brings back memories for us that remember old gas stations. I can see where you would move around as there are islands of great color contrasts.

I'm the same way, can't report a page done, just going with the colors on two pages at once. I will probably regret it when doing the filling in with confetti.
You are so right about the time. Taxes done here (by my DH), but we are working on a mega garage sale for May 1st so free time should be spent preparing for that (key word here is should). There is always something going on, though, and I must learn to manage time better. And although posting does require some time, it is so inspiring to me to see the progress others have done, and just to chat with comrades who love to stitch. That is something I have not had since my dear grandmother passed away, until I found this forum. Best of luck on the "Gas" project. If/when I learn how to post a picture of my excruciatingly slow progress, I will try to post. I will have to get the DH to help with that as well. He is so helpful, thankfully.

How is Gas coming along? Hopefully you will have a picture to post soon! I've been thinking about that pattern. I really like the Early Sunday Morning one also. I hope everyone is too busy stitching to post! Our Spring so far has been filled with strange happenings, so I'm hoping we are past all that here and things will return to normal. I do have another row of Sun and Moon Flowers done and pictures taken, I just need to get around to posting! Hope everyone has plenty of stitching time. Happy stitching! Stitching
