Hello & welcome! I'm working on a Holy Family picture (not SQ) but still a nice number of stitches...220w x 397h. I'm almost 1/2 way through and I have 2 lovely faces to look at when I stitch! It's my first time working on 22 count so it's been interesting to see what I can/cannot see since I'm apparently getting older. Shocked I've started a Dimensions Gold Christmas stocking for my daughter which I hope can be done for next year. Finally, I work in smaller designs on tshirts, sweatshirts with waste canvas for the kids for different holidays. It's a hodge/podge of stealing time to stitch since I work full time, have 3 kids, husband & dog. I can usually work in a few hrs. on the weekends so my projects can take a lllllllooooooonnnnnnnngggggggg time. Laughing

Good question! Ask something around here, and we are sure to answer!
I usually have several things going at once, but at the moment I have a singular focus, and it's been discussed a bit already. My nemis, the Heaven and Earth design: Narcissus. My son moved out and wanted something nice for his new place, this was what he selected. I work on it almost every day because I really want it finished. I am using 25 count (as recommended) and the completed size will be about 12 X 19. It is 300 X 476 stitches, the chart is 20 pages. I am keeping track of the time spent on this one, because I was curious mostly. I started it on Aug 13 and have so far put in about 240 hours, that's three and third pages worth for me. The pages are averaging around 70 hours each.
My next one will be SQ's Big Wave, for my daughter, and her new place. Good thing for me, the third kid still lives at home.

A mother work is never done. 2 of my 3 boys still live @ home(other is in college). TW's The Castle is in their room by request. Collegeboy has the "the tassle is worth the hassle" XS piece in his room.

When I get The Castle done, the 10 year old wants it in his room Smile I want to purchase one of TW's giclee prints of it, as well, and have them hanging side by side.

And then.... the girlfriends come along, if they like
what they see you'll end up with even more SQs. Smile
I ended up with 2 from Monet 2 from Vermeer and a Renoir .But one of them told me "we like the pictures and you like to stitch so everybody is happy" Wink
It will last me a lifetime doing them but its true I love to stitch.
happy Stitching

Hi -
I'm working in SQ's Pinkie. It's 16 pages total, and I'm working across four at a time so I can roll my scroll bars and not have to go back. I'm now working on pages 5,6, 7 and 8, so I'm a little over 25% done after almost 2 years. Stitching I work fulltime and DH thinks I need to help him with things like re-building the engine for our 1953 Jeep and building a gazebo in the back yard, so my stitching has to get worked in around all that. Plus my Labrador retriever and Manx cat need one on one time.

I'm gridding (kinda) and parking (oh, yeah!!!) on this project. Never did either before, but I love it.

Hey, Joann!

Well, I have a weekly rotation of 5 major projects, and a couple of side things. My 5 major projects right now are:
- SQ Lady & Unicorn (I have updates in Coffee Break - I have app. 10% done);
- TW's Fantasy Triptich, which is about 2/3 done;
- TW's The castle, which is about 1/2 done, part of a SAL;
- Needlemania's Fire Flower, which I will end up doing twice, once in assissi, once in XS on the same fabric - I am past the half-way mark on the assissi side;
- and finally, I will be starting my second soldier memorial in a couple of weeks, as I just finished one.

If I don't feel like working on one of these focus pieces, I have a very large sampler that I take out, a 16-part freebie design that I am working over-1. I also have a travel project that I take to my kids' soccer games and practice and such, another freebie, Bouquet for Cheryl. I have a bag of ornaments kitted up for travel projects also, when BfC gets done.

I am hoping to get a lot of stitching time over the next few months - I vowed no stitched gifts this year, as I about pushed myself over the edge trying to get things done last year - not doing it this year. And I want to get one of these TWs done, as I have my first Chatelaine ready to go into one of those spots Smile And as soon as Fire Flower gets done, I have a Long Dog to go in its spot, if I can come across the $$$ to buy the silk floss I want for it. And that's not mentioning the other 30 things that are just about kitted up.... All I need is less work and more time!!! But, don't we all??? Stitching Stitching Stitching Stitching

As usual, Rife has an INSANE amount of projects going at once. She makes me feel better about my 2 big/some little kitted lifestyle!

Hi, all. As you know from my other posts, I am working on 'The Young Gardener'...it's slow, but coming along. A lot of single stitches, which look beautiful when put together, but take time to do.

I have also made a pattern from a photo of my youngest grandson when he was a baby, and am working on that. It is a black and white photo, but the pattern has other colours in it, and should be interesting to see how it turns out.

Both are being done on 18 count Aida, with 2 over 1.
