Doing a major HD here, finished Inspiration, one of my goals for this year. It fits beautifully into a standard 16X20 frame and this will be a birthday gifts for my daughter.

How is everyone else coming along with theirs? You all must be getting so close to a finish! no?

I am looking at starting Alpine Season by Martina Weber after I finish a baby sampler for our newest granddaughter.

Error alert!

How is everyone doing with Inspiration, not much postings lately, I guess everyone is busy stitching lol

I am working on the middle part (village section) and notice the 'bent' trees on the right do not line up with the ones on the left. One is off by one row. Just thought I would pass on this information.

My Progress Update

Here is my progress as of last night. I have completed through page four. I fully intended to stitch about all day last Saturday, but stripped the bathroom floor instead.... :o( Hopefully things will be different this Saturday! Sorry it's sideways.... it was this way in my computer and I uploaded before I thought....

My Progress

Here's my progress as of this evening. And no, I'm not having any problems with motivation. I will probably work across to the right side and then move on to another project though.
I did do a bit of singing this afternoon, as I stitched a few of the Village People. My friends weren't impressed though, and suggested I go back to stitching another part of the design.
Happy stitching, on whatever you're working on.

Congrats, Christine!! THE WINNER!!!!

I have to admit. I'm burned out on this piece. I've put this one up for a few days and will try again. I'm exactly 1/2 way finished. And, no, Dana, this is not a trick to get you to ease off so I can beat you. LOL!!

So admit it, ladies.....who else is burned out?

Well, here it is. I can't believe I finished. Up until the last day, it was sketchy since there are so many color changes. I still had 15 colors or so on Saturday but finished Sunday morning.

A few hints, the pages are not well separated as you go on. I would strongly recommend stitching the bottom half of the center motif (up until and including the diamond border) all at the same time. Also, I would recommend stitching the border up until the diamond border also. Pages 18 and 24 have the corner and that was a recipe for disaster. I found it hard to stitch that sections so was better off beaking it up into smaller sections.


Happy Stitching!

Tuesday, March 10, 2009 update from Becky

At long last, I am posting my updated pic. I have not stitched on this for almost a month. After the auction, I was just totally wiped out and felt I just couldn't concentrate on the intricate details of the "village people". LOL!! Hopefully, I'm going to get back to this tonight!!
