Finally making it across the town

I am making it across this right hand side of the town on MTM, that is. I am not quite all the way across this edge, but getting closer now! I plan to work on this for the weekend, and maybe I will finish. I realize I have been putting off doing the backstitching this month. Last month I did it as I stitched along. This month I will probably have to spend one day's allotted stitching time just doing backstitching. I am not sure I like that! I usually would have been working on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow tonight, but the ladies who are SALing with me on this one are not posting any updates, so I am not sure where folks stand with it... so I took the night off from it. I am sure the other ladies will update me soon on theirs.

Q. Do you do obligation or deadline-based stitching? Why or why not? If you do, do you tend to get in over your head and why?

A. No, I don't do obligation or deadline-based stitching at all. That just doesn't appeal to me, I guess. But if I did it, I sure would get in over my head. That is my personality for sure! LOL Who knows, maybe someday I will stitch a wedding or birth sampler...or anniversary sampler... for one of my pals, and that would be relatively deadline, would the Chatelaine mysteries count as deadline stitching? After giving it thought, I think they do, at least for me... here I am watching the calendar to finish part 7 of answer changes, then, if this is considered deadline stitching :-)

Other than that... really nothing to say, just another long day at work, but glad it is the weekend again tomorrow!

Stitched on today: Quaker Garden and Medieval Town Mandala

You are doing a fantastic job on MTM, Carol!! Mine will be coming off the super-sized scroll frame and back onto the Q-snaps in the next week or two. The scroll frame is just too unwieldy for me to handle so I don't enjoy stitching the piece.

Oh MY Carol - you have outdone yourself - guess what just arrived in my mailbox yesterday!

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I absolutely LOVE it and I can NOT wait to start one of these Michael Powell charts now!
THANK YOU THANK YOU again! You are so sweet.

Carol, I think that Chatelaines are definately deadline stitching! I know when I'm doing one I always want to be done before the next part comes out!!
