An outline like that will make the other stitching much easier, chrislizbert

Here is mine at the end of hte summer. Not too exciting, I worked more on the snow and filled in some of the areas where I was missing 4 stitches of one colour or something.  Trying to get the rest of the background done before I work on the wagon, as I want it to the the last thing I stitch before I backstitch.

I've been a bit more motivated this month, which I attribute to Veronica Mars popping up on Canadian Netflix.  Always wanted to watch it, and now I'm nearing the end of Season 2 so I've gotten in quite a few hours on this project in May.

Horsies!  If I keep up this pace I will have no trouble finishing this by October.

Here is my March & April progress.  Just a bit of snow on the left side and I started the horsies.

Likely May will be a slow month too- we are mid-DIY-kitchen reno.  The kettle is in the living room, the dishwasher is downstairs, and everything is covered in drywall dust.  However, it will be nice to open cupboard doors without them coming off in my hand.

Jexxican, that is really pretty!

Here is my February progress.  Knowing i committed to update at the end of every month helped motivate me to work on it.

I tend to do chunks at a time.  Not as precise as 10 x 10 but I'll pick a section, like the house or haystack for example, and work on that.  I am glad to be done that dumb haystack!  It doesn't look like much, but had a ridiculous number of colour changes.

What do you guys do while stitching? I am watching The Good Wife on Netflix while working on this project and I'm now on Season 3.

Hi!  I started the Big Project Stitch Along 2007, and am back as I finish this:

My progress thus far.  I started in 2013, want to finish this year.  This is the most difficult project I've worked on, sooo many thread colour changes and lots of blending.

Here is the darling hoop I received from Kanawinkie!  She lamented a bit that it was more blue than green, but I am perfectly happy as my new sewing & crafting room will have icy blue walls once it's reassembled (it's currently undergoing renovation due to a basement flood).  The blues and greens also complement the hoop I received from sazzra very nicely!

closeup of embroidery- I love how the blue line is yarn with embroidery wrapping it to the fabric, very clever.

Sazzra & Kanawinkie have forwarded their hoops on to one another, I hope they are as pleased with their hoops as I am with mine!

I was a very lucky girl and received this beautiful hoop from Sazzra!  I am in the middle of having my basement repaired due to a flood & my new sewing/craft room will have icy blue walls, which this hoop will look very pretty with.

The back is also pretty with sparkly black material and the tag written in sparkly black ink.

Thank you, Sazzra!  I should mention that Sazzra is not as lucky as I am, as I had mixed up my partner's hoops when sending.  I was trying so hard not to too!  Thankfully they are being very sweet and sending the hoops on to one another.

Pattern by Magpie Night on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/magpienight

It's my first biscornu and it was quite fun & satisfying to put together.  This one is a gift, I am going to try another pattern to make one for myself.

Well, it only took me 3 years and 1 month but I finished my stocking this weekend  Wink

The stocking is for my son, who was 2 when I started it and will be 6 next month, eep!  I have it hanging on my fireplace right now, I couldn't bear to finish it and then shove it into storage!  I'll give it a couple of weeks first.

I have a new project I am working on and I'm considering joining the 2010 group, maybe that will motivate me to actually finish it in 2010.

10  Play Campfire in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Etheren on: April 11, 2009 03:24:39 PM
I spotted a play campfire online and knew I had to make one for my son and the little ones I watch during the week. 

My son is currently clamoring for "white and brown pretend marshmallows". I even offered that we could pretend to cook REAL marshmallows that he could eat later, but he wants play ones.

I used red corduroy with orange and yellow felt for the flames. The large flame is stuffed with stuffing and poly pellets on the bottom to make it stand and the small flame has wire armature so you can shape it.

I used some scrap wood for around the flames but I'd like to collect some sticks on our nature walks to use instead.

We have a play tent so I envision lots of pretend camping this summer.
