Great progress, I am almost jealous of how many projects you are able to do at once. I have little time to stitch (not as much as I would like anyway), and the thought of working on multiple projects at once... makes me think I would never get my Lady & the Unicorn finished.
Although, I am looking at an "away" project for when we spend some nights away from home...
I love your updates, keep 'em coming (they give me inspiration too, for the wishlists Wink)

Another month has passed, and another update has been posted Smile I have finally finished page 3!!!! If I can have a few great rotations this spring, I hope to have the top row of pages completed near my 3rd anniversary. It still blows me away that anyone can do one of these in under a year - even if I didn't work or have anyone to cook & clean for, I just don't think I could do it - the one I'm working on would require about 400 stitches a day, every day for 365 days. Nope, just don't think I could do it! But to those that do, my hat's off to you, for sure!! But I'll keep to my rotation - it just works better for me than when I was a one-at-a-timer!

Anyway, I took 2 pics this time - one including my marked-off chart, so you can see the scattering of stitches I had to do to get Page 3 done (the yellow highlight is this week's), and then one of the area I worked.

In both, it's the latest two pictures - look for 2-1-09 Smile This week, I am working on Chatelaine's Medieval Town Mandala, my New Year's start Smile

Fantastic plastic! It's definitely starting to pull together! I know what you mean about not being able to stitch a whole pattern in a year, or even less!! If you check out our friends in the gallery, some of them are actually completing TWO patterns a year!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked That's just way beyond me, break both my legs, stick me in a chair and I still wouldn't get that much done!!
Say, aren't you already working on a mandala? Or is that someone else? Good luck with it anyway and remember, photos photos photos! Razz

Ummm, I have 3 of them on the go Embarassed Knotgarden, the one I started last year, which is about 1/2 way done; then I started a Mini Mystery in November - it's just a small 3-parter, which I should have done in the next month or two - it's on black, so I need to have some sunlight to finish it up. And then Medieval Town Mandala, which was my New Year's start Smile And one more is kitted & ready to go, the very second I finish the first one, which could happen later this year, if I stay on the current track Smile All of them have their individual albums on my Multiply site:

And there's one more I have to get, Tuscany Town Mandala. Yep - I'm a junkie Smile

Yes, I thought it was you doing knotgarden (who else?!) and I also had your book of ink circles in the back of my head. I also see that you've started on another TW- can't stop yourself can you?! And what's with the HAED??? It is looking gorgeous though I must say. In fact you're making really solid progress on everything! Well done you! Where's that silk one though that I like, the one that's just got interlocking blocks of varigated colour...?

Well, I have news too you know... see my imminant post! Very Happy

Yes, another TW - can I not have a TW? I don't think so. And that HaED is something that may very likely get a regular spot in the rotation soon - I really, really want to work on it, too - and she has several more pieces of her art charted with them Smile I need more time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
