Hi Stitchers -- I am pleased to report some progress for October -- one small and one large motif along the right hand side of the sampler (shown in the top photo). I am definitely on the two-year plan on this lovely sampler, but enjoying every stitch that I am able to put into it.
Congratulations to those who have finished, and to everyone else, keep up the good work.
Happy Halloween to everyone!
As of September:
As of October:
This may be the tiniest amount of progress ever, it's the little brown blob if you're wondering! ;) Just two thread lengths, but I hope this post will motivate me to get going again. It's been a very busy month workwise. I have six workshops and two lectures to give next week, so hopefully after that I will be able to relax for a little while. I've loved seeing all your progress pics, some of you are really near to finishing which is really exciting! One thing I did finish this month was 'Beatrix Potter: a Life in Nature' by Linda Lear (ISBN 0713995602), it took me a while to get into but I really did enjoy it and would definately recommend it. Happy All Hallows Eve stitching! :)
I am not going to beat myself up this month for not doing a lot on B. Potter. I am working on it every month & enjoying every minute of it, so why beat myself up!?!!?
Were we SUPPOSE to get it finished in the year?? If so, I am in trouble, but otherwise, I will keep working as I can. I love doing MANY projects, so I don't get a lot done on my bigger projects! I am doing one that is 49 pages long!!!! Imagine how long that one will take?!?!?!
Everyone's pieces look wonderful! It amazes me how different colors make them look so different!!!

Above is my September progress, while below is my October accomplishments...I managed to get three done including the swan under the tree. I plan on just pushing forward and getting Beatrix Potter finished up before the holidays. For close ups, I plan on putting them at my own blog...

A very busy month has seen me not stitch much at all - and to top it all off I put in the corner motif only to find I was a stitch out on the edge. So yes - I unsewed it! Here's where I was at the end of September
and here's where I'm at now. Pathetic effort Deb!
Getting close to the end, but still seems like far to go. I'm glad I've had the SAL to keep me going or this would have ended up at the bottom of the pile I think.
See you end of November,

I'm going to try and stitch some more over the next few days but just in case I can't I wanted to post progress pics now.
This is where I was at the end of September:
And this is the way things look today. I'm still hoping to be able to finish this by the end of the year...we'll see!

A little more progress this month thankfully! Although I did make a mistake right at the beginning at of the last big motif I did and had to frog it but I managed to get it restitched and the next one started!
Please excuse the pic as I took it in artificial light.

Yet again, the month has flown and there are only five days left to get this month's updates in by. We are so close now. Just two more months and we can do the drawing. Remember, every stitch counts so get your updates in please.

I am rather late posting my September photos as I have been away but here they are at last. I must say I am very happy to have another rather large project finished. This one has been really enjoyable and a big thank you to Hazel for organizing this SAL. After a rather slow couple of months I set myself a goal to complete a certain number of motifs each month to ensure it was completed on time. However once I got back to my stitching I just had to keep going on this project and I am very happy with the result. Now it is off to the framers and I have to decide which will be the next WIP to concentrate on and to see how many projects can be finished before the end of the year.

and here's September's progress:
Four and a bit motifs done this month! Sorry I am a bit late posting this. My little boy has been ill since Friday and it's starting to take its toll on me.
