well I have decided not to upload any stitches until a few people either catch up or return from holidays... seems as though life is getting in the way and so I thought it would be a good time for another break. As I am only home for four weeks and then away for another month how about everyone use that time to catch up.
I know it is only April but I propose that we start up again 1st of July. I will do a bit of advertising through the general forum in June and hopefully we can have some more takers for the second half of TAST.
Don't take this as an opportunity to give up though... use the time to catch up or experiment with those stitches you have already started... and don't forget to post pictures so we can all enjoy your work.
Oh Jan, it is hard isn't it...I don't have a job at the moment, and every morning I plan my day - I'll do shopping or housework in the morning and stitch all afternoon...Ha. Dream on. It only takes a phone call, and I get caught up in something else for the rest of the day. Anyway, like you, I'm not going to quit!
Is anyone at home yet? I've been busy tonight, working on the remaining stitches up to date, and now I only have the last two to go. Admittedly I've only done a short row of each stitch, but I'm a slow learner, especially when I have to teach myself via pictures and diagrams on the internet...I do pick up things faster from watching Mary's videos, or watching someone else stitch in front of me so I can ask questions. But I'm pleased with my progress in actually DOING some of these stitches, even just a couple of inches of each!
I am now home - got back from Central Australia last night - one shower and three swims in 18 days!! You can get clean enough with a bird bath every night! Gina, congratulations on getting some stitching done. I have to see to photos before I can stitch.
