Here's My Latest Update - Lady & Unicorn     Reply with quote

I finally finished Page 2!!!!! And I have a good section of Page 3 done, as well! I think I got in between 1000-1200 stitches on it this week - sure beats the 40-50 I got in the last time it was out, which I didn't even bother doing an update on. I just wish I could have that kind of progress on it every time it comes out; this month marks the 2nd anniversary of this piece, and though that first year was kind of scattered, I was still hoping to be further along on this by now. But I am finally at a point where any progress actually feels like progress. Hopefully I can blow through Page 3 this summer, before soccer starts.... The update pic is here: http://tinyurl.com/5zec5e - my Multiply, or here, my Webshots: http://tinyurl.com/5smlz6

I also worked on two other projects this past week - I love having a day or two off of work! If you are interested and can see Multiply pages, you can see this week's entire update here: http://tinyurl.com/62ogpr I do an update like this every week, since I rotate every week Smile And yes, I use a lot of words there, too Cool

Hey, Rifestitch, your update picture is fantastic and sooo many stitches last week, you can see you're well on the way with page 3,( and the pages below 1 and 2) way to go girl. Very Happy
By the way, I think we stitch for fun and to enjoy ourselves, you'll get there, because you have so many other projects and none of them look small! Shocked And they all look great.
Keep us updated, it's keeps us going or better stitching.
Happy Stitching

Thank you, Fenny! Yeah, I don't really have small projects Smile When you learn on TW, it's kinda hard to go back from there Laughing

Well done, Rife. You're definitely moving into new levels of productiveness! All that L&U done and two others to boot! Inspirational stuff!

I'm currently down with my sister-in-law for the week and I've barely had the chance to pull my TW out at all. We spend the days looking after her kids and cleaning the house and then in the evenings it's time to cook dinner and get everyone showered and into bed, by which time I usually just zone out in front of the TV. We don't have a TV in our house at home so when there's one there I find it really distracting. I'm not one of those people who can have a conversation while the TV is blaring in the background, and I guess that's why we don't have one! Hate the damn things! In the meantime though it does provide a bit of brainless relief at the end of the day and helps to stop you from thinking too much about things.

Fantastic progress, Rife! It's really looking good. I see that you have abandoned parking, but from what I can see of your unparkeed progress it looks like you made the right decision. The further you can run with a colour, the faster you go I guess. Well done anyway, and keep us updated!

(I haven't touched my dragon ONCE this month- I've been swamped with two major deadlines that have me working pretty much through the nights). Crying or Very sad

Oooohhh - progress is in the air! It looks great Rife. I have finished the 17th page of mine, only 2 and a half to go! Alanna - no worries. We know how you feel, but remember, "jobs" do end, and then we can stitch!

Sorry to say, my stitching is not what it should be, it's too hot, but kitted up some SQs, oh my Confused , where to start? Would love to start them all at once, but with one pair of hands not possible.
Anyone of you have an idea how to pick one???????

Assign each a number 1, 2, 3, etc., and roll the dice!!! Seriously, I know a few people in my groups that have a ginormous pile of WIPS, and the roll the dice each time it's time to work on something different - keeps them enthused for all the projects, since they never know what they'll be working on. Personally, I hate surprises like that - I'll stick with my current rotation - which tells me to tell you to start all of them, and rotate after a day or two Smile
