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.


End of February Progress by Blackbird Pie, on Flickr

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.

Wow, that looks amazing!  I admire your patience, some of those innocent seeming bits will color change every other stitch, it seems!

I tend to stitch while watching tv also.  I recently finished up Gilmore Girls (borrowed from a friend, I must buy!), and now I am watching Once Upon a Time. 

I'm painting my needlepoint canvas now, hope to have pics up by the end of the week.

Here's my big project for 2014:



I adapted this pattern from the 1997 Keepsake Calendar:



I replaced the seals with my sons' names and dates-of-birth, and added some extra animals to make a circle using PCStitch. Right now my cat is lying on top of my cross-stitch bag  Wink, so I'll have to post a picture of my progress later on!

The way you altered that pattern is amazing! Honestly it looks better than the original, especially with the personalization.

That's going to be fabulous, delilah!   Cheesy

I'm designing another big project, but it's for a swap so I'll only be able to post teasers....

Yeah, I still haven't worked on my project since before I joined this thread, but I did get my camera battery charged so maybe it will be my goal for May? Or to a certain point will be my goal for May? We will see how s*** goes down with my sister. *sigh*

Here's my progress on "In the Wild." I'll follow Etheren's example, and try to post at the end of each month!
