Le Potager du Roi, Part 9 - Finis :-)

I was absolutely determined to finish Part 9 of Mystery IX tonight, and I did.... of course, if I had decided to do the beading and crystals now too, I never would finish it this month. And I began to wonder if Martina were to stitch one of her mysteries or large online classes following the monthly schedule she gives to us, would she be able to finish on time? I often wonder if she realizes how much work she gives us each month. I don't think this month's part looks like it was all that much, but it sure was. It really used up a lot of the Sierra Haze Lt. Gloriana silk, which surprised me. So now.... only three months left to go!

I've wondered about Martina coping with her own stitching schedule too.
Mystery IX looks great as always!

Looks wonderful. You're right about the part that you just finished, it doesn't look like it would take that long, but after seeing MTM IRL and how large Martina's projects are I can see that this is a much larger area than your pic appears to be.

Hi Carol! Of course if Martina were stitching, too, she wouldn't have any more time to design... but I do see your point and I don't know how you keep up with the monthly assignments. They'd take me at least twice as long, I'm sure.

Your Mystery IX looks gorgeous... I can't wait to see what this turns out like in the end. :)

It looks wonderful, Carol. I too was surprised by how long each little scroll took. It will be interesting to see what next month brings:)

Yay! It looks beautiful, Carol! I know that I can't handle Martina's schedules, but I didn't even manage to start Stitching Leporello on time, so unless I have a massive stitching spurt, I won't catch up. And some of the parts of those are small and easy. If only I could get the complicated basting done so that I could at least finish one of those... I envy your discipline! :)

I have to admit, I never ceases to amaze me how much stitching you get done on these each month ... just amazing! And oh so worth it :D

Barb said...

The Mystery 1X looks great. I enjoyed your site and like the way you have the flowers on each post. Barb

Looks fantastic Carol! I couldn't keep up with that schedule at all.
I so wish it was warm, send some of that up here would ya? LOL, at least it's not snowing again today!

It looks fabulous! Well done!

I guess it all depends on what you have else to do in life. I'm always amazed that some people seem to be able to keep up with three or four of these classes. But maybe they don't work or stitch anything else! :)

Your Mystery piece looks great. I really love the daylily pic posted today - and the name is pretty cool, but kinda makes me hungry too.

Michelle said...

Gorgeous! I agree, it is hard to keep up with the large amounts of stitching each month on these. You've done beautiful work!

I think you are probably one of the few stitchers who comes close to keeping the schedule Martina sets. It's really amazing how dedicated you are, Carol! :D
