Patricia, I am currently working on Watergarden, Small Hamam Oasis, Herbularius, Hortus Viridarium, Fire Lily Garden Mandala, and soon to start the third in the flower panel series (orchid). As I said, way too many :--) And you wouldn't believe all I have kitted up and ready to go! I also have two finishes: The first two in the flower panel series, the tulip and the iris.

One of these days I will set up a blog so I will have all my stuff in one place, but for now if you head over to the Yuku Chatelaine forum and look for posts by Tanya2, you can see pics of my WIPs.


Makes me feel not NEARLY so bad for having 3 on the go (Tuscany, Secret Victorian, & Desert)! Though, Deep Blue Sea and Sparkly Hummingbird would be ecstatic to join the list... Shocked Cool

Hi Bianca - welcome! I have yet to start my first SQ but when I do, it will either be Tree of Life or one of the Peacocks and Peonies windows. Tree of Life I will do over one on ivory, either Hardanger or 18 count Aida, and for Peacocks and Peonies I have already bought white 18 count Aida.

I would love to start Tree of Life together but probably cannot do it until January. It will definitely be super slow going on my part - maybe a page a month. I have far too many Chatelaine and Ink Circles designs on the needle right now, not to mention the various knitting projects! Still, I would love to start an SQ and maybe this will be the motivation for me to get going Smile

Cheers and welcome again!
Tanya


Hello Tanya,

Sorry for the late reply -- work has been insanely busy. Would LOVE to work on the Tree of Life together. I rotate so on average I guess I won't do much, if at all that much, 1 page a month.

Decided to work on a 36 inch Millennium Frame sideways, which I think will be fine. Did have a bit of a duh moment, when I realized that of course I do not have the hold the frame sideways -- just read the pattern differently. Cannot believe that I actually thought I had to turn the frame sideways for a bit -- in any event, that shows you how much I work (or how blonde I am, take your pick).

I love Ink Circles as well - which one(s) are you working on?

Well, I have picked some biggies in my rotates so no more buying for me for a bit (yeah right, I can almost start my own store).

Have a great holiday weekend,
Bianca

I am doing Peregrinations extremely slowly right now, and have finished Pizzazz, Pot Luck, This Heart of Mine, and Namaste. All smalls so far, but I am dying to start the new Cirque: Coeurs! Unfortunately there is not much chance of that, I'm afraid, thanks to all the current WIP on the needle(s).

I must need my head examined but I recently started to learn crochet (I already knit) and I also signed up for two new Chatelaines, both mysteries, that start in January! However, I still want to start the Tree, so I am going to shoot for a January start and see how it goes. At least I will have all of my Christmas knitting done Smile

Tanya, I wanted to answer you before, but my husband passed away 3 weeks ago, soI am just getting my head around it. I have been stitching a lot and that helps. I find carrying a thread over an inch is ok for me. That is on 14 ct and less on 16ct. It often gets covered over by other threads anyway. I have finished my Chocolate Pot.. ta da da!! The first stitch was on April 29/09 and the last stitch was on Oct 11/12. I keep good records on all I work on. Other SQ's I am working on are; Birds and Snowy Berry Branches, Ehret and Rain Blossoms. There are 8 more patterns I have, but not kitted yet. There are a couple more I am tempted to order too.I love to have the patterns anyway and look at them a lot. I just have no will power, I just give in to my whims. Rolling Eyes ..
I have just finished Martina's Winter Wonderland and am very pleased with it. I have also done her Hanging Gardens of Semiramis, Shalimar and am working on Winter Guests and Rajasthan Lotus Pond.. and I have just ordered Polar Mandala. and really want the Desert Mandala
I am looking for tips on the best way to wash/clean the Chooclate Pot.. any suggestions..anyone???

Patricia, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I am sincerely glad you are able to find some solace in your stitching.

Thank you for the input on carrying stitches - I try to stick to the inch guideline as well; learning the pinhead stitch has helped a lot.

I have seen your Hanging Gardens of Semiramis and it is a beauty - gorgeous work! The Polar Mandala is tempting me but I just had to pass - too many Chats on the go right now, plus a couple of stunners coming up in the next few months.

I love Ehret - it is definitely in my top 10 SQ to-do list!

Take care and be well,
Tanya
