Can I join up?  I am doing two original pieces for my daughter's 7th birthday.  One is an underwater scene with her version of a mermaid (dreads, seaweed, fins and gills on the ribs) and manta rays and octopi(her favorite underwater critters). The other is a baby fairy/gnome playing hide and seek on a mushroom with a snail. I have the designs mostly drawn up, and am getting a new/bigger hoop this evening.

Why do some people think being a parent is only something to do when it is convenient for you?

oh just finished one....

And started a new one that isn't my own design and it'll take a while.  Would love to later on!

I can't wait to see some original designs embroidered. This is exactly what I want to do once I get some practice.

I'll be watching!

I'd like to join this too. I'm working on an original Thanksgiving design and want to make a Christmas one too.

A pic of Thanksgiving piece is here:

I haven't worked on my thanksgiving project since posting last, but I've done quite a bit on the one I'm making as a Christmas present for my DH. It's of a painting by Winslow Homer titled "Entering the First Rapids"

crossstitchpro, your pieces looks so complicated. How big is "Entering the First Rapids"? How long had it taken you so far?

i took a shot at creating a pattern for a cross stitch of a 1up mushroom.  i figured the image itself is simple enough for a first try at creating a pattern.  i just started working on it a bit last night so there's barely anything done, but i'll post pics and am willing to share the pattern if folks like it. 

i have plans to do and have begun designing a Sigma Alpha Iota themed pattern as well, but it'll be a while before i perfect it.  I'm not big on having a lot of text in the projects I do, but the SAI one will have a ton of text since I'm going to try to fit the whole SAI Symphony on it.  i'm not sure when i'll finish the design or actually get started on the project since i already have two projects started and I wont have a ton of free time throughout September (yay busy month for work and moving into my new house!)
