Okay, so I am going to start called The Great Wave, my Great Delay. I never got a stitch placed in October, but here is what I did complete:
14 out of 15 commission peices (the last one is waiting on charms, order should be in any day now)
5 miniature rugs and 11 pillows
Hopefully you can see a couple of them with this link. (If not let me know.)
After the last few mini projects are done (this weekend) and that charm order arrives, I am full on back to my SQ. I promise. (Thanks Meredith for updating me in the gallery, personally, I cannot live without you these days.)
I love those small pieces you did, the rug is wonderful!!! I am trying so hard to not commit to any gifts this year - though I started an ornament the other night that I don't know if it stays with me, or if it goes away
My dilema is figuring out how I can stitch while I wait in the election line tomorrow since the forecast is for a record turn out with long lines. I can't think of anything else that I like doing that melts the time away & I still have something to show for the time!

I've been pondering that very thing myself... was wondering how ticked people would be if I pulled out a cheapo chair on wheels we have, so I could sit & work on a project, and yet, keep on moving I'm pretty sure the standing & stitching won't work, not for very long, anyway. I tried reading the last time I was in that line, and it's impossible with all the chatter around me...
My husband will die laughing when I tell him I am a stitching roadrunner! Since he comes and goes and there I am, still in the chair, he thinks I'm more like a piece of furniture. But I love the image!
Nora Corbett's stuff is wonderful, and that fabric is so perfect. I adore those overdyed ones. A couple of the commission pieces were done on them, they really add something special.
About voting (I think the rolling chair idea is inspired), a few years ago Oregon went to mail in only. I was totally against this, but now I can see the advantages. Standing in line, with projects at home calling my name, would be torture.
I have almost all the charms on, so The Great Delay will be back on the rack by tomorrow night. And pictures will follow. Having all this encouragement keeps me from slowing down!
